My question is: in which direction are the threads on the lower shaft containing the bearings. Right or Left? Because I’m having a hard time removing the nut which holds the wheel to the shaft.

I don’t know if the lower shaft is reverse thread but I doubt very much that it is,maybe someone who has the same saw could chime in and clear that up,.It may have some threadlock on it. I would heat the nut with a BBQ lighter or propane torch just a little and try loosening it the usual(right) direction, the heat should take care of it

If anyone knows of my problem removing the bottom nut from a Delta wood band saw model 28-245 please let me know. but I will try to heat up the nut itself to get it to loosen.

Can’t you see the end of the shaft to see at least part of the first thread to know which way the nut turns?

Thanks , I just went out to check on the thread rotation. it’s very close to the end of the shaft, but it looks as if the threads are turning “Right to Tight”. so I’ll try to remove the nut turning Left. but at any rate.. it’s on there mighty tight, as I’ve tried both ways of turning before with a lot of pressure and with no luck. I might have to heat up just the nut and not the shaft. Thanks again.
