SOURCE: blade wont stay in Bosch 1882VS jig saw

From your description I cannot say for certain, but it sounds as though you are not locking the blade correctly, or the blade lock mechanism is broken. You can tell if the blade-lock is working by clicking it. It should make an audible "click" that you can feel. Also, you can pull on the blade ( with the saw UN-plugged of course!) and feel if it is properly seated. If you are operating the blade-lock according to the instructions and it still doesn't lock positively, see a service center before you use the tool again. A broken blade-lock could be dangerous.

SOURCE: Changing the blade in a bosch pst 65 pae corded jigsaw

Pull up the knob on the front at the top of the machine and push the yellow bit forward. Theoretically you should turn the knob anticlockwise three turns but it doesn't seem to make any difference on my one. Then take hold of the blade, ease it forward and turn through 90 degrees. You should then be able to pull it out. Replacement is, as they say in all the best manuals, a simple reversal of the procedure. When you are turning the knob clockwise this time it's supposed to click in place but my one doesn't do this and still seems to work.

Best of luck

Gavin

The blade can be replaced by unscrewing the screw found on the shaft.

SOURCE: bought a jigsaw a bosch pst 54e how do i change

In the handle directly over the blade is a deep hole. You insert a long thin bladed screw driver into this hole all the way down. Twist slowly and it will locate with a screw. Undo the screw and then twist the remaining piece of blade 90 deg and pull. Replace new blade in the opposite way. Twist it so that the cut is to the front and then tighten up the screw. Do not tip up the unit while doing this as the screw might drop out and you might loose it

SOURCE: makita 4304T. jigsaw blade Do not know how to fasten it?

On the top of the Makita 4304T is a knob, (Top/Front)
This is the blade Installing Lever.

Viewing the jigsaw in the direction you would use it, the Installing Lever is turned towards the Right. Keeping it turned, you then install the jigsaw blade. Once you have the blade up in the Blade Holder, gently release the Installing Lever.

The blade broke off inside and I can't get it out. Please help me figure how to get it out.


moden jigsaw blades are held in with a taper chuck system
disconnect the unit from the wall socket
push the spindle all the way in
now press on either side of the blade holder and that should move down releasing the blade
now while holding that section down turn the unit right side up and the broken bit should just fall out

Part that guides the blade is broken need a new replacement


Search online for black and decker parts using the model number (on the label on the jigsaw). But Black and Decker are manufactured to bot be very durable, its better and probably cheaper to replace it, with almost any other brand. If cost is an issue but a used high quality item on ebay, made by Makita, Hitachi, Bosch or Metabo. Even and old one of these is better than a black and decker.

I have a Parkside precision pendulum-action jigsaw, model number PPHSS 730. It has three blades... two for wood, one for metal.... but how can I tell which is for metal?


Tom,
The one for metal will almost certainly have the smallest teeth. Sometimes the metal one will a wavy tooth set - that is, if you viewed the blade from the front, there is a sine-wave shape to the tooth set pattern. (Tooth set means the tips of the teeth are bent a little bit to the left or right to make the cut just a little wider than the rest of the blade so that it doesn't get stuck in the cut.)
Good luck.

I have an old bosch 158IVS uh, what do you call a little reciprocating saw? jigsaw? anyways i can't for the life of me figure out how to change the blade. i've undone every screw. opened up the motor...


well the sawzaw will be drastically different from the jigsaw, but the jigsaw will have either a round twist lock that needs to be turned a little to remove the blade, or two screws that hold a flat plate that clamp the blade. and as for the sawzaw, it will be a twist lock, or a latch lock, the latch lock will look like a lever that needs lifted to remove the blade, and the twist lock is the same as the jigsaw.

Cannot remove blade as do not hve manual 4350FCT makita jig saw


Hello Aiden,

This Makita jigsaw does not use any set screw fasteners to secure the blade in the saw. It has a "tool-less" blade retainer, so all you need to do to remove (or install) the blades, is to twist the small knurled ring nearest the blade shank.

Be sure to unplug the jigsaw first and with the blade shaft fully away extended from the saw, (you can just pull it out by hand if needed) and then simply twist the round locking ring and then with your other hand, pull the blade out of the jigsaw.

I would suggest that you use a glove on the hand you're going to pull the blade out of the jigsaw with, as those blades can be very sharp with the jagged cutting edges, etc.

Here's a parts breakdown of the jigsaw, for your reference and for obtaining any replacement parts you might need in the future.

http://www.makita.com/en-us/Assets/images/Products/_PartsBreakdowns/PB_4350FCT.pdf

Makita doesn't have an owner's manual listed on their web site for this product. You will need to contact Makita directly to obtain a free replacement manual for your product. You can contact them at

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
