Default Replacing Table Saw Blade

Today I went to change the blade on my Table Saw only to find out that I lost the wrenches. Any idea where I can get new ones or if they have to be the same manufacturers wrenches?

Who ever sells that brand will be able to get them for you. Tie strings on them and attach them to the saw. You know you will order them weight to long for them pay to much for them and find the old ones.

You can't just use an adjustable wrench?

Some of them just have a slot in the inside, so only that skinny wrench fits.
Sometimes you can grab the blade with vicegrips and let the table hold that for you.

Allen wrenches? Metric or English? Torx?

Well luckily I dug a little deeper in an old tool box and found the original wrenches. Thanks for the suggestions. I tried many different things but nothing fit right or worked.

Wuzzat: the're just open end wrenches cut out 1/8 steel so the fit in the slot.

For my Makita I have those flat wrenches plus Allens for the blade guard, plus you need a Phillips. I keep them all in a soup can fastened to the saw with #12 AWG.

Got the blade off. Next question is "Any suggestions for a new blade?" I use it for general home projects.
