Answer: 
Thank you for your question. To change the blade you would just embed the teeth of the blade into a piece of scrap wood, this will stop the arbor from turning so that you can loosen the blade bolt. Instructions are also included in the manual. The 5680 accepts most manufacturers blades including Diablo, this model uses 7-1/4" blades with 5/8" round arbor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great to have This is my first circular saw, and I like it. the default blade seems thicker. But I never use others, can't see the difference. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average The Lazer was off, my cuts were off. Took it back for a refund. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the Skil Love the Skil Saw. Works great. Was a replacement for an old Skil, which worked great for years. So far no reason to think this one will not be a around and serve me well for years to come as well. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EASY TO USE Just tried it today to cuff of some wood planks & this thing worked great. Will be using to cut some floor planks later this week. Really like the laser guide as it lines me up very well. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy to use very good buy. associate showed me that the tool I wanted was only sold on line at the price I wanted. May 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool My old craftsman is still in good shape, but not near as good as this Skil saw. It has the power to rip through most thicknesses and the laser guide is useful except when using it in direct sunlight. May 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as advertised Accomplished all that I wanted . Great value!! Reckoned this saw for all home projects. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it.. powerful and straight. Laser is good too I've used this several times on some laminate flooring as well as mouldings on my house and a condo I own. IT does the job for me - very pleased with it. I installed a diablo 60th blade on it for a smoother cut and it's working very nicely. September 1, 2015
