Hey, I have an 'American Saw' and it has a two wrench blade tightening
system. But sadly, no stock riving knife - I added one, however.
As for US cars, how about Ed Cole's baby, the Corvair (65 & later)?
4 wheel, 4 link independent suspension with coil springs, flat
horizontally opposed 6 cylinder turbocharged engine - an alternator,
really stiff unibody, split steering shaft, little to no chrome, and
People didn't want it - Ralph Nader killed it, even though by the time
his book was published, they had redesigned it to eliminate the VW
type swing-arm suspension. While easy to blame the manufacturers,
they produce what is demanded of them - and what sells.
This explains all the wretched SUV's roaming the landscape of the USA
that are equipped with... hmmm....
Huge bulbous bodies, big V-8s, lots of chrome, rain gutters, huge
pompous grills, ladder frames, distributors (although electronic
instead of points), leaf springs, and high centers of gravity. That
is what the morons want. <g>
I just grab the blade with my right hand and tighten the nut with the
wrench held in the left hand. Since the tightening tries to rotate the
blade backwards there is no risk of cutting the fingers.
By the way: What is the typical diameter of the arbor flange? My
Metabo saw has about 7.5cm...

I recently bought Kelly Mehler's table saw video. He says you don't
need to tighten the nut much at all. He says that the way the nut is
threaded it tightens on its own. I bought a device called a Bladeloc
(I think). It holds it securely enough.
