Blade Change for Bosch 1581

I inherited a Bosch 1581 vs, I don't have the manual. The blade is broken in the tool and I can't figure out how to get it out. There is a hole at the top of the handle, does this use a hex, phillips head or flat head. Also do you know if the manual is downloadable. I went to the bosch website and it is not available online. Thanks

I have a Bosch 1587 avs. I am trying to change the blade. I have followed the instructions as per Manual. In the last part I am supposed to hear a click to lock the blade in to position while rotating the...


First unplug tool and lift up on the knob and loosen the spindle lock, insert blade and push up slightly while doing so and twist to align blade with the roller, while lifting up tighten the knob until you hear it click and the blade should be tight and stay in place. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I bought used Bosch-1581-vs, unfortunately parts are missing required to secure the blade. Would you be able to tell me part numbers I need to buy? Thank you in advance.


The only clamp part you need is 2603400000 . It may be down in the shaft already. You need a thin flathead screwdriver to stick in the hole at the front of the handle. This is the bosch part number for their screwdriver for this jigsaw JA1001 .

Do not know how to replace blade in a Bosch 1581 VS Jig Saw


You need a long shafted flat head screwdriver that fits into the hole in the handle above the blade. Then simply loosen or tighten the screw inside there, and the blade twists 90 degrees and will pull completely out. Reverse to install. Also see pg 7 of instruction manual (click here.)
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

BLADE CHANGING


What's the model number of that saw?
If it's one of the old ones, a 1581 VS or some such, you need a long thin flat-head screw driver that fits through the hole in the top of the handle and reaches down far enough to unscrew (loosen it) the set screw that holds the blade locked in place. Then you twist the blade 90 degrees (perpendicular to the direction of cut), and pull it out. Reverse process for installation, making sure before you tighten the blade it rides in the groove on the guide bearing below.
If that doesn't seem like it's the correct sequence for your saw I apologize.
The Bosch website won't accept any 10 digit tool product numbers due to some glitch in the system, and they made so many variations on that saw it'd make your head spin.
That's the other way some of them loosen up, actually, is by pulliing up the plastic head at the top of the handle and unscrewing it a few turns to loosen the blade.,, Vice versa for install..
Hope this helps a bit!
