I have a Scheppach TS2500 table saw and while cutting some oak was generating more smoke than a log burner. Decided it was time to change the blade but having no joy undoing the blade retaining nut. The shaft is held with a steel rod to enable the nut to be removed/tightened but so far all I have managed is to bend the rod and even broken a piece off the end. Does anyone know if it is a left hand thread or convention anti-clockwise direction to remove. I can't remember from when I last did this and the manual doesn't mention it which leaves me thinking it is conventional. I have tried both ways but no joy. I have also tried a "whack" with a hammer but there is to much "spring" intge system for that to work. I would be grateful for any suggestions as until I can change the blade, I am stuck.

Many thanks

Sorry about the garbled start, - many thanks should be at the end and ignore the word Do. Now edited.

All of the table saws that I have had have a left hand thread. The reason for this is that the nut doesn't loosen whilst the saw is in use, and so you need to turn the nut in the same direction as the blade spins, anti clockwise.

Thanks Al. At least I now know which way to try and turn it.
