Topic tags/keywords: question

I searched the site and didn’t find an answer to this. I have a Skil 77 saw. The sleeve around the arbor has a raised diamond shape that fits in the diamond shaped opening in the factory blade. All I find online are blades with 5/8” arbors holes.

The arbor on the saw is 5/8”, but with that sleeve on there, the raised diamond portion of it won’t let a blade sit completely flush. What am I missing? Is there a replacement sleeve I need? I know that lots of you folks have that saw and if anyone can educate me, I’d really appreciate it.

Take a 9/16 or a 1/2 open end wrench and pry the diamond out of the center of the blade.

Great, thanks! I guess I couldn’t see that in the online product photos.

Most 7 1/4” blades have the diamond knockout.

Yeah, I guess if I’d been shopping at the store, I’d have seen that. Like I said, the photos on the Home Depot and Amazon didn’t make it obvious. I was skimming products pics waiting to see that shape for the arbor.

I love LJ. Thank you so much.

That’s the best saw made. Some first time users put the blade on backwards. Label faces inside. And no, it’s not for left handed people.

-- Google first, search forums second, ask questions later.
