Years ago I bought a Kobalt sliding miter saw (10") and have never changed the blade. I have lost the instructions manual and Google hasn't been much help. I am trying to figure out how to take the old blade off and posted this YouTube video detailing exactly where I'm going awry.
But essentially I have removed some of the protective fencing around the blade, as well as the bolt that goes through the hole in the center of the blade. Now I am trying to remove what I believe is called the arbor but I am unsure of this name. Its a (approx) 2" metal disc that appears to be securing the blade to the motor housing.
Can anyone help me figure out how to remove this arbor, or whatever it is, to get the blade off? Also I have a replacement blade that is also 10" with and appropriate sized arbor (5/8"), but it is a DeWalt blade -- compatible, or not at all?
Thanks for any and all help here!
