OK Patrick, it is easy to find, but first, a safety rule: UNPLUG THE SAW BEFORE CHANGING OR TIGHTENING THE BLADE. It's smart to wear a glove on the hand that is close to the blade; they don't feel very sharp until you slip and drag the heel of your hand across the teeth.

OK Patrick, it is easy to find, but first, a safety rule: UNPLUG THE SAW BEFORE CHANGING OR TIGHTENING THE BLADE. It's smart to wear a glove on the hand that is close to the blade; they don't feel very sharp until you slip and drag the heel of your hand across the teeth.
If you hold the saw as if using it, there's a back and front grip. The flat topped rectangle (spindle lock) is immediately to the right of the front grip. When changing blades or tightening, you hold the button down. It doesn't lock in place. It keeps the spindle from moving while you use the wrench with the other hand. Please never press this button while the saw is in motion. I work with sharp stuff every day and so far still have all my fingers. Changing that is one careless moment away. Read Less

Answer: 
Thanks for the question Patrick! You should hold the spindle lock button while you are using the blade wrench to remove the screw. You will feel it lock once you start turning the screw counterclockwise for removal. You have to keep constant pressure on the button. If you have an issues, give us a call at tech support at 1-800-525-2579.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 142 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the money I volunteered to make a cub-o-matic for our cub-scout pack. For my idea I needed a to cut some plywood. For the small project I didn't want to spend a lot of money so, I bought this Ryobi. It was dependable and worked great. On to the next project! May 15, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the money. Very economical. I bought this circular saw to cut pavers for a patio that I was building with 1 3/4 inch thick pavers. The saw worked great to cut the 1/2" to 3" pieces that I needed. I did, however, buy a special blade for cutting brick before I started. Fairly easy to use but a little heavy. November 20, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just Ok. Not that great for big projects. Saw is just OK. It struggles a bit when cutting 2x4's, especially cutting through knots. It's better suited for cutting through plywood. I'd suggest going with a 14 or 15 amp saw instead of the 13 amp. I wish I would have spent a bit more money to go with a better saw. Also, as others have said, the guard gets caught on the end of 2x4's so it doesn't easily cut all the way through. September 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by If you don't buy oversized, you can afford more. I know that this is not a forum for wood-bound philosophy., but hear me out. After years of buying Godzilla-level tools for an imaginary future need, I realize that the best tool is one that fits the needs you have. I'm a DIY guy. This really strong little circular saw is lightweight, compact, and right sized for the needs of a homeowner. I'm not needing this to frame out a few houses; I need to cut lumber for outdoor household projects every summer. Put a thin kerf carbide blade on this, as I have, and it'll pretty much do anything you ask of it. Be realistic...don't ask it to plunge cut 5/4 seasoned oak floors quickly. (and NO, I didn't :) August 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Light wieght, Durable One of those tools my bought for me. Not what i would have purchased but got it anyways. I picked it up and thought it was trash because of how light it was. Tried the blade that came with it. Trash. With a new blade it worked great. Used the heck out of it cutting metal and fiberglass board, concrete board, oak barnwood, nails, etc. Even let the wife use it since so economical. Only bad thing to say is the plate on it bent easy and the guides aren't right or super accurate but for someone that doesn't know what that means or can cut straight i guess wouldn't matter. And it is super light which i don't like but what ev. November 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great saw, few problems. first off im gonna say this was my first power tool ive ever purchased. but not the first ive ever used. i got it yesterday for 45$. i got it to cut 2x4 beams for a little project. it was cutting good but i came across some problems. -first being it wont cut all the way thought. the guard gets caught on the wood and wont go any farther. causing me to have to finish the half inch with my hand saw. -second, it has a very bad kick to it. like it almost comes out of your hand when it does. besides these 2 little problems it works great. got my project done in under 7 hrs. January 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Low-use good performance We won't need a circular saw very often, so we got this inexpensive model. It worked very well for cutting boards for a workbench we recently built. We bought an additional blade to cut plywood, which also worked beautifully. If (like us) you have never used a circular saw before (or it was very long ago), I highly recommend reading the manual for some important safety tips. It's both clear and thorough. It takes a little time upfront, but will save you from damaged wood and possibly injuries. February 4, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by doesn't cut straight Bought this saw and upgraded to the diablo blade. I have a Dewalt table saw and a Bosch router, but figured I could save some money getting a cheap circular saw. That was a mistake. The base plate is attached to the upper shield, which is plastic, which means that when cutting, the base plate twists out of parallel and the rear of the blade cuts further to the left then the front of the blade. Unfortunately, there is no adjustment. It is more problematic when making shallow cuts, so I tried cutting at the deepest depth and still ruined my fence template. Fortunately, I had a hand saw and was able to get everything else done with that and the table saw. I'll be returning this to home depot. On the positive side, the dust ejector works well, and there were no problems when cross cutting. Just don't get this if you intend to rip using the base plate as a straight guide. March 30, 2015
