I've activated the brake. Now what?
After activation, the saw can be reset and returned to use in a matter of minutes. The first step is to rest the main power switch and unplug the saw. During activation, the arbor block will drop out of position. It’s reset by rotating the handwheel to fully lower the mechanism, then raise it.
The brake will be embedded on the rim of the blade, and the two must be removed together. Remove the key and the nut and washer securing the blade. Alternately, wiggle the brake and blade a little at a time and walk them off. When you have opened a little space to the left, you can use the blade wrench as a lever, alternating between prying the blade and the cartridge a little at a time.
This procedure is discussed in detail in the manual. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with it in advance.
