Notes: 
  • Not difficult, but that step of making sure you get the left side in first can be tricky. The saw just barely fits the 8 1/16 inch blades we ship with it. But they DO fit.
  • Some wider or offset blades may lightly scrape a small aluminum protrusion on the inside of the housing.  Either use a metal file to file away the impacting protrusion until it no longer scrapes, or just let the blade wear in the surface.
