Removing Saw Blade

I am having trouble removing the blade from my Delta chop saw. Is it a right or left handed thread bolt?
Even when I push in the shaft lock and try with all my might it seems like it's getting tighter? The lock has now slipped a time or two on the shaft and now the lock does not work as well.

Any ideas?

An option might be to e-mail Delta and ask. Does the owner's manual cover replacing the blade?

I would go to their website and see if they have free downloads of instruction manuals. Many companies I have dealt with recently (Simpson Meters for one) had their stuff right on their website.

Most times if you call the 800 # on the saw, the folks there are very happy to help you out.

Delta....Black and Decker table saw or chop saw stop the blade from turning in the direction of the cutting teeth with a block of wood and remove the nut by cutting into the wood the blade turns to cut the wood.....the nut will tighten as the saw is cutting a safty thing so the blade will not come off.....Good Luck

So does that make it a right or left handed thread?

Hello WA JOE...again
That would be a left hand thread tighten the nut/bolt....turn left to remove....sorry for not having said that earlyer......right hand = clock wise.....left hand = counter clock wise....Good luck
