I bought one of those red Freud blades that's teflon coated and I'm now
having trouble figuring out how to snug it tight on my TS.
The arbor has no place for a wrench to grab and I'd really rather not
try to use a vise grip to hold it. I've tried both wedging a block in
back and tightening it with a wrench, but no luck. I then tried
snugging it up and then pulling forward on the blade while it's wedged
the other way. No luck.
I guess my next options are to get out the vise grips and a piece of
inner tube or possibly make some wahser type thingies out of abrasive
paper (400?). Maybe I could remove the coating from the center of the
Has anyone else had this problem?
PS - A Diet Dr. Pepper can is .004" thick. Thus, four thicknesses
would be .016, NOT, as you might be led to believe, .0016. DAMHIKT.
