Re: try and unbolt that bolt and the whole blade just keeps spining.
I just had this problem with my Skil Saw. The problem ended up being that I had
a blade that was too thick in it. This caused the washer to spin because it
could not engage the square nut that just protrudes past the blade. The solution
was to use a chisel to pry the washer a bit and keep it from spinning. Bolt came
off easily after. btw: I find that using a large vicegrip works well to hold the
blade from turning.
Are you saying you stop the blade but the arbor keeps spinning?
There is usually a pair of flat spots on the arbor on the back of the
blade that a skinny wrench engages. Then you spin off the nut.
You do need that skinny wrench tho.

7¼" CIRCULAR saw. He's talking about a 'D' washer (I believe is the
correct nomenclature) and an arbor BOLT.
Believe that you're thinking of a table saw. Maybe I lead a sheltered
life but I've never seen a second wrench for a circular saw. Owned B&D,
Monkey Wards, Craftsman and Crapsman, Skil and Milwaukee. Some circular
saws have a locking pin that locks the arbor. I usually just let the
teeth grab onto a piece of scrap 2 by and there's no problem.

An impact wrench to remove a circ saw arbor bolt? Please.
I expect the OP jacks his car up before he breaks the lugs too.
Just lock the blade. I've done it hundreds of times, using different
methods. A locking arbor, screwdriver though a hole in the blade,
screwdriver between teeth, visegrips, even between scraps of wood in a
vise. Etc, etc.
