    hi. Trying to change the blade stand on my 8000. Appears I have to remove the yellow base from bottom base to get screws holding stand out.

    The nuts on top of yellow base spin and I can't see what to grab underneath the bottom base

    Guessing you have to poke a hex or screwdriver head into the hole to grab but tried several and nothing fits. Can't see in hole well enough to determine what goes.

    Ok. Managed to get Blade Rest off without separating the bases but no way of getting front bolt back in Blade Rest without separating them.

    Guessing I can just Flip the Rest instead of replacing. One end badly worn but assuming both ends are the same.
