    Roland - To make room for the stack, just leave the outside arbor washer off, and tighten the arbor nut against the outside cutter. Don't take the flange off!

      What's the manual talking about then?

        The Ridgid 3650 is a Left tilt saw, so a standard thread (tightens clockwise) nut will tighten if the blade slips a small amount when hitting cutting resistance. A Right tilt saw with a standard thread will loosen if the blade is spun from cutting resistance. ( A left tilt saw has the nut on the right, a Right tilt saw has the nut on the left).
        If you push the wrench on the nut to tighten, you are okay. If you pull it, then the nut will loosen if the blade slips (top teeth slipping toward back of saw).
        To be honest, I have never used a right tilt saw, so I do not know if the nuts are all left handed (tighten counterclockwise) or not.


        tchads: Thanks
        Right tilt saws use a reverse thread orientation... "righty loosy" One their bigger disadvantages IMHO....that always drove me "nuts".
