On page 35 of 45 of the owners manual it says “Unlock the release locking lever to release the blade.” It does not describe how to do that and the only way I could do it was to use a hex wrench and un-bolt the gizmo that is the frame that holds that colored piece of in-the-way steel. This also holds the plate of steel that follows the blade through the wood you are cutting that holds the anti-kickback prawls if you use those. Then blade removal was easy…lefty loosey, righty tighty just like a normal nut since the motor is on the left. Don’t forget that Rigid supplies the wrenches for this on the left side of the unit.
Has anyone got a way to remove the blade without the hex wrench step I did? Lining that steel up again to follow the blade exactly seems like an unnecessary step.
