    1. remove the 'skids' either side of the blade
    2. Remove the blade. You can prise it out of position with a screwdriver.
    3. Replace blade. Put a bend either side of the blade, about 2" in, this stops the blade sliding out every so often.
    4. Replace the skids. Always renew the skids when renewing the blade.
    5. Open a can of beer
