If the spindle is broken you have to take the front of the saw apart, but check for excessive wear in the other parts before buying just the one. Its not that hard just pay attention when you disassemble

Porter Cable Tiger saw 9735 stopped working

blow it out and spin the motor by hand you may have saw dust blocking the brushes. If that's not it check the brushes to see if they have life left in them. If not that check the cord for an open with a volt ohme meter.
Hope that helps!

I have a Model 737 Tiger Saw that was loaned out and now I cannot load a blade. It appears that a blade may have been broken off in the quick change collar. I cannot pry it out, so I must disassemble the...

Its hot pressed onto the shaft its made not to come apart because if it did in use it would not be good. I use sawalls all of the time and fine if the blade snaps low you can get them out with a strong magnet if you hold it up side down and turn the collar shake it around mabey spray some WD40 in side first it may take a little doing but it beats takeing that change collar a part.

I need to get the gear out of the back in order to pull the recipt shaft it is broken.. how do u pull the gear out I have the 9745 tiger saw

Are you serious? Dewalt sells a saw for $100.00! I like the tiger saw but choose the path of least resistance. Your saw isn't worth it . Time will be high and parts plus shipping will add up as well as the wait time.

I bought a Dewalt DW310 reciprocating saw and there seems to be no way to install a blade. The instructions show a wheel to turn to unlock the blade chuck but the wheel is up inside the saw body where you...

The blade clamp collar is a spring loaded knob of sorts that holds the blade in place. If you are not able to pull the blade shaft out of the saw to get at it, plug the saw in and hit the on/off trigger a few times to get the shaft and knob out of the body of the saw. Once you can get at the knob it should be easy to turn it and insert a new blade. Let me know if you have problems.

Cannot get the blade out of the porter cable reciprocating saw

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...
