How do I lubricate my Craftsman Reciprocating Saw

I have a Craftsman model 900.275030 reciprocating saw that I need to lubricate. Can I do it myself? If I can, how do I do this and what type of lubricating oil do I use.

SOURCE: lubrication and maintenance reciprocal saw DeWalt

Before you attempt any of this I would recommend going to and see what the inside of this tool looks like. It appears that you need to remove part of the front gearcase to get into the lube. The back e.g. brushes is not that big of a deal. If there is a Service Center near you they have a Max repair rate that they will fix anything on this saw at a preset firm price and if it is less that is what they would charge.

How do I separate the field case from the reciprocating part of a Craftsman reciprocating saw model 900271261

You have to remove the big rubber boot on the end of the saw to get at the screws that hold the gear case on the field case. First remove the shoe off the nose then, you may need help here, pull the boot off the gear case. Some come off easy, some have to be helped off with a long screwdriver prying up at sticking points until the boot comes off. After that, remove the four screws holding the two cases together.
