Trying to find a replacement blade for my circular saw (AEG cordless 165mm) The blades are very hard to find as the bore is 15.8mm and most of the blades for this size are 16mm. Would this be a safety issue if used a 16mm instead of the original 15.8?

The spec here (below) says it's a 16mm bore blade.

Does yours say different or have you measure it yourself?

This is what I read in the user manual 15.8mm.

Click here this one says 15.9 mm :roll:

Maybe they increased / standardised it over the years?

Thanks guys for confirming that there are some strange bore holes around the 16mm mark. Doing some more research, I've seen 15.87 and 15.88 bore holes and tracked down a Milwaukee blade with a 15.8 bore which according to my manual is the correct size for my saw.

Atlas-Copco bought AEG a number of years back, but AEG had been designing and making tools for Milwaukee (especially jig saws and cordless tools) from the late 1980s onwards and by the late 1990s owned a substantial share of Milwaukee. Atlas-Copco subsequently bought-out Milwaukee as well and sold tools under the A-C, AEG and Milewaukee brands (as well as Kango, for good measure, another acquisition). A-C subsequently sold off their power tool interests to TTI, the Hong Kong-based investor who had already taken over Ryobi in the 1990s. TTI has since attempted to reposition Milwaukee as the heavy trade/industrial brand, AEG as the light trade brand and Ryobi as the DIY brand- so if you are looking for parts and accessories for older stuff from these three ranges it may well be worth checking the alternative brands to see if a particular model has migrated to another range in the TTI stable.

BTW, AFAIK there's only really 5/8in (15.87 or 15.88mm depending in your conversion source, rounded-up to 15.9mm very often) or 16mm (a metricated 5/8in) bore holes to look for. I suspect that 15.8 is a rounding-down error. Personally I don't see 0.1mm difference causing too many issues on a saw arbor, either, because the blades will never be an inrterference fit on the arbor in any case
