I can't for the life of me figure out how to change the blade on this thing. Can't find the manual. Done this on other saws, but not sure why this is different. Any know how to do this on this saw? Thanks!!!

Not sure what the problem is you're having, but pretty much all saws are the same... Press a locking button (usually on the backside of the blade or somewhere on the motor shaft), then use a wrench to loosen/remove the hold-down nut/bolt. Obviously unplug the saw FIRST.

I should have been more specific...sorry. I can't get the screw to come off the safety shroud. Was not sure if it was x threaded or not. It is hard to turn, but it does turn both ways. Looks like some kind of locking nut/washer behind it.

I got it. I have to give the glory to God. I was trying to remove something that was made to not be removed. The shroud has two screws that are holding it on. I took those off, and there you go, came right off. Super "duh" moment.
Laughing about it now...
Thanks!!!
