Hi i have a circular saw that takes 185mm dia blades with a 20mm bore. I am looking for a new blade i have found the size i need but the pictures show the arrows and teeth going in the opposite direction. So do i just turn the blades over when i fit them to my saw or will that not work.

Circular saw teeth enter the wood/board from below (blade rotates towards the user), don't reverse the blade it will greatly increase the chances of serious kickback.

This is my existing blade which goes anti clockwise with teeth entering from below wood. The Saxton blades are the ones i was looking at but the pictures show teeth and arrow the opposite way so do i turn blade round so teeth enter fro below wood.

I cant remember how my saxton blades fitted, without looking again

Yes. I've been using a cordless rop saw for more than 10 years, now, and because the blade is on the left side (most corded drills like the OPs have the blade on the right when viewed from the operators position) I've often bought blades which are marked on the wrong face to read when installed. As to the direction arrow, a portable circular saw blade is always installed so that the teeth face forwards and upwards

Just taken this wrecked blade off a saw. Rotation direction clearly marked on each side. This blade was obviously made for a left blade saw and would have the blank (all yellow) side visible on a conventional right blade saw
