Twist the collar around where the blade fits in the saw. It will lock in the open position. When you insert the new blade, do so firmly until the collar releases locking the new blade in place. Give a tug at the blade to make sure it is locked in.

Bosch b4300 jigsaw blade replacement


To change the Bosch B4300 blade - If the grey knob does not turn to release the broken blade, you need to use a LONG THIN flathead screwdriver down the center hole at the top. Unscrew until the broken blade is loose. Pull out. Replace the new blade and then screw the it tight through the same hole at the top. DONE.

I have a Bosch RS20 recip saw. A blade broke off in the chuck and I can't get it out. What should I do to get it out of there? Thanks for your help. Dan


Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

Installing blade on a bosch jigsaw


The black part on top of the handle must be pulled directly up about 1/2 an inch. this engages the screw mechanism that loosens the blade. For some people doing this the first time feels like they are going to break the handle but it moves easier over time. Now turn the black handle counterclockwise several turns and the blade will hang loose in the holder. Turn the blade 90 degrees and remove it. Place a new blade in and turn back 90 degrees. Tighten the handle on top until it clicks. Align the black handle to the main handle and press back down into place.

Rs20 bosch case falling apart


If you loosen the screws at the end of the saw that hold the boot on you can carefully snip the the rubber around the holes. This will alow you to remove the boot without dismantling the front of the saw. The boot is glued and they are sometimes difficult to remove.You can carefully take a flat blade screwdriver to peal the boot off and re-use it. Hope this helps
