heating the blade ... nope

Woodnthings...what's that about chucking the blade if heated? It is an expensive blade (at least by my standards) and am loath to bin it unless really necessary. What should I look for in evaluating whether or not I can re-use this safely?

Thanks again, everyone.
In the manufacture of blades, the plate is made to be especially flat by different processes like hammering. If you heat the blade, then pry on it it that will change the structure of the plate and "probably" warp it making it useless.. If you wanted to chance it, you could of course. Glad you got it off without doing that.

It does sound like a pressed fit . That means it's going to take some force to get it off .

To add to what woodnthings said about heating up the blade, any amount of banging on it or prying is cause for concern when re-using it. I wouldn't want one of the teeth to pop off while my face is in line with the blade spin and embed itself in my forehead or worse (I often use my saw with safety glasses instead of my full face covered).

Also consider that with the hole of the blade being bent in/out during this process it may have some wobble to it, which might not be a big deal if you are just dicing up 2x4's and rough plywood, I wouldn't want to cut anything finish grade on it.

Edit: If you haven't gotten it off yet, I'd recommend against hitting it further for the sake of your saw bearings. The damage just isn't worth it, as your saw bearings aren't designed for lateral stress. I'd get a metal c-clamp on it and either plasma or angle grinder cut it off (or a sawzall with a short blade, dremel if none of those are available). Get as close to the shaft as you can on two sides of the blade, then bend it back and forth until it snaps off.

In the end, a mill file lightly applied around the circumference of the shaft along with two screwdrivers for leverage popped the thing out.

Thanks again, everyone.
FYI, It's off the arbor!
