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.

15 Amp 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with Laser is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Skil Saw Yet I bought this saw 4 moths ago to replace a Skil saw that was 30 years old and starting to show worn brushes on the motor. I used it to rebuild a large elevated deck/porch and on numerous other projects and it is amazing. I've never had a saw so easy and accurate to use on plywood, especially with the laser line. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Really Solid Worker In-store I bought a light-weight saw, which I returned a few days later. So I went online and read a bunch of reviews carefully before choosing a different saw. This one is a definite keeper. The laser is very helpful and easier on the eyes than watching my Sharpie pen line. The saw is hefty, but not unwieldy, and the plate is solid/wide enough for good support/control, even with narrow or angled cuts. The blade cuts cleanly, quickly, with no kickbacks, and the noise level is good. Would like an improvement on the locking lever for raising/lowering the blade cutting depth -- it is awkwardly located and to adjust. To do an angle cut, the locking knob is fairly tight -- hope it will loosen with use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cut like butter only used it to cut a 4x8 sheet of treated plywood and a couple treated 2x4s but it cut real smooth.especially liked the laser on the plywood, a lot easier to keep a straight cut.my other 40 year old saw quit. had to replace it and wanted something that didn't cost an arm and a leg as I'm not a builder or contractor. the price was right, the saw had the extra features I wanted and the bag was a bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like it should Laser is spot on and everything lines up as it should. Had just returned a new Rigid saw that was more expensive. The laser was way off the cut line and to cut a straight up 90 degree cut you had to set the base plate on 12 degrees. Nothing right about that saw but the slightly cheaper Skil works great. Good quality for the price.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Skillsaw model 5680-2 Laser and blade misaliened UNCORRECTABLE I bought this saw because it has a laser.The laser is off 1/8 of an inch and CANNOT BE ADJUSTED ! The foot of the saw is also off making 90 degree cuts 1/8 inch to long,again you cannot correct the problem.The blade of any saw should align with the ,90 degree,cutting guide notch.I have used a variety of saws, left and right bladed saws,wormdrive,brick and tile,compound miter saws all are accurate an most are adjustable. Home Depot specifications say this saw has a dust blower and spindle lock,THIS MODEL DOES NOT HAVE SPINDLE LOCK or DUST BLOWER.I have discovered multiple product description errors by Home Depot ,and now go manufactures site to get accurate description. This saw is not sold in store and must be ordered online. My saw arrived within a week. The saw has some nice features,10.2 lbs in weight, 15 amps and easy to use bevel and depth control.It's inaccuracy of 1/8 inch make it useless to me. I needed a saw and did not have the time ,two or more weeks, needed to return saw and receive replacement. I returned saw to Home Depot and bought a ,in stock at store, Dewalt model DWE575SB from Lowes . Dewalt cost more but is only 8.8 lbs and very accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bang 4 the buck This is a very good saw 4 the price. Very powerful cuts rite threw heavy wood without bogging down plenty of amps. Love the laser line very accurate. case is well made and it even comes with a free framing blade.
Date published: 2013-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Saw Bought this to replace an old Craftsman saw. The saw works like a champ and the laser makes straight cuts a breeze. It is heavy duty and far less than other saws without a laser. The carrying case and on-board wrench were added bonuses. I hightly recommend this saw.
