SOURCE: is there a quick change blade kit for my dewalt

There is no kit. There is a way to do it. The only catch is that it will probably wind up costing you about $50 to do so. You would have to replace the reciprocating shaft with item 29 #619938-00($22)along with these additional parts: Steel ball 387425-00 ($.82), Slider 603329-10 ($2.14), Spring 616398-00 ($77), Shoe 389556-00 ($11.61), Lever Assy 620351-00 ($3.35), and Screw 99279-08 ($.82). It's gonna cost you more than half the cost of a new one to do this. It would be advisable if your saw is in anything but excellent condition to purchase a new one with this feature.

SOURCE: need to remove and then

Hello Hollister, on this peticular sawzall they are using a roll pin to hold the blade holder on. If you remove the blade clamp screw, you can move the blade holder back and forth on it. You will need to get a very small punch and drive it all the way out. Look at the picture below. You will need to remove (38) and (52). It will make it much easier.

It sounds like the set-screw may have caused a burr on the blade, and that's preventing you from removing it. You might use a tool like vice-grips, and apply more force. I don't think you can hurt anything by doing that if the blade is in the fully-extended position.
Good luck,

Hi,

There is a small screw on the right side by the shoe assembly that should allow you to remove it so you can get to the piece broken off. There is also a C-clip that you might have to remove also.

I hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Blade stuck in dw331 blade clamp


I've been all over the internet with this because the blade clamp on my 331 is jammed as well. It turns out DeWalt has redesigned the blade clamp, I'm guessing they did this because the original design jams. Solution: call DeWalt. Tell them that you have the old and now obsolete blade clamp that is prone to jamming, and that yours is stuck making your saw worthless. Ask them to send you the new redesigned clamp that is supposed to work better. You swap out blade clamp by removing two hex head (allen) screws.

The new style blade clamp for the 331 is part number: N072135SV

*The obsolete part #: N072135, 586203-00 and 589148-00

Good luck getting DeWalt to send you the working part for free.

How to change a blade on dw305 dewalt recirocating saw


On the DW305 you need an allen wrench to remove the blade. Some tools have one somewhere on the handle, if not find one to fit in the blade clamp hex-head bolt. Loosen the bolt and the old blade should come out easily. When you put the new blade in make sure the pin inside catches the hole in the blade.

How do i intall a blade on a DW303 Reciprocating saw?


To install blade into saw:
1. Loosen set screw.
2. Insert blade shank from the front between the reciprocating shaft and the blade clamp.
Locate hole in blade over pin on reciprocating shaft.
3. Tighten set screw. If the blade should break off and the shank does not come out of the clamp,
be sure the set screw is loose and eject the shank with a nail or pointed object.

How to take apart in the middle?


You have to remove the blade clamp lever assembly first by unscrewing the philips head screw underneath the front then you need to remove the cage like shoe assembly from the front of the saw. Use a torx 20 bit I think it is on the 4 screws inside the cage. You need to have 6 inch extension bits in order to get in there. Then you need to slide the boot cover off the assemby and you are inside. Now you can undo the 4 screws that are holding the drive assembly onto the motor. Be sure you take the brushes out first if you remove the armature. You can damage the brushes if you do not remove them prior to removing the armature.
