I've done that many times putting a blade on backwards but never got to the point of turning the saw on. It's such a simple thing it's easy to let your mind wander while you are doing it. Then suddenly it's an opp's moment.

This reminds me of a time when a bunch of us that were out for a ride stopped to visit a buddy. His wife wheeled the lawnmower into his shop and asked him if he could sharpen the blade.
This guy was a true friend, he would give you the shirt off his back, only thing was his ego.
He removed the blade and proceeded to talk us through how to properly sharpen a blade, how important it was to balance it, then properly torque it to the motor shaft. As his wife left with the mower he remarked that most people just didn't have a clue about how to sharpen a blade.
Couple minutes his wife came back and said it was worse than before, he had put the blade on backwards.

Why does it seem you only ever seem to make mistakes like that when you're trying to teach someone else?

He knew how to sharpen the blade and was so impressed by having an audience, he proceeded to get careless and installed in one of the two ways it would go on.

They need to make things that only go on one way for those who have limited ability to focus on the task at hand and for all the rest of us who will find the alternate incorrect installation method more appealing.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
