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...

I had to disassemble the tool-less blade clamp on my Ridgid reciprocating saw. When I reassembled it the retention pin no longer moves back and forth when I flip the blade change lever (not sure if...


The spring loaded clamp sleve mechanically holds the blade pin down to hold the blade in place. It doesn't pull it up to release the blade but simply lets the pin float freely so the blade can be removed.

How to change a blade on dw305 dewalt recirocating saw


On the DW305 you need an allen wrench to remove the blade. Some tools have one somewhere on the handle, if not find one to fit in the blade clamp hex-head bolt. Loosen the bolt and the old blade should come out easily. When you put the new blade in make sure the pin inside catches the hole in the blade.

We have a ryobi rj150v model reciprocating saw (older model) which needs the blade replaced. It had a broken part, which I ordered several years ago. My husband's FINALLY going to replace the blade,...


There are 2 types of clamps that hold the blade in that type of saw.

Since this is an older one it most likely has the type where the blade is held in place with a set screw and a "U" shaped piece of metal that holds the blade tight against the shaft. There should be a screw hole in the shaft of the saw. The blade rest next to the shaft and then the metal piece clamps the blade against the shaft. This is all held in place by a set screw that screws into the shaft. This screw uses a hex key to remove and tighten it.

If your tool doesn't have this style then it should have a twisting clamp. This will rotate and release the blade. Sometimes a pliers is needed to loosen the collar, but not to tight tho.

How do i intall a blade on a DW303 Reciprocating saw?


To install blade into saw:
1. Loosen set screw.
2. Insert blade shank from the front between the reciprocating shaft and the blade clamp.
Locate hole in blade over pin on reciprocating shaft.
3. Tighten set screw. If the blade should break off and the shank does not come out of the clamp,
be sure the set screw is loose and eject the shank with a nail or pointed object.

How to change dewalt DW304 blade


In short, with as little force. 1) use a hex key to remove a small bolt at the tip of the reciprocating blade holder, right at the base of the blade. the blade should now wobble, but you may not be able to pull the blade free. 2), turn the saw so that you are looking from the front, blade pointing right at you. now slide the blade as far to the LEFT as possible. this should be the position that the blade clears the little round retaining nub on the left side of the shaft that fits through the hole on the blade and pulls free. sometimes the blade is too thick or is bend so this is difficult. 3) try yanking or wiggling while the blade is slid as far left as possible. i just had to pry / knock the blade free with a screwdriver and hammer. there is a narrowing at the very base of the blade before it enters into the mounting hole, and i just used a screndriver wedged in there and hit iy with a hammer WHILE having the blade slid over into the left position. 4) to make it easier for yourself the next time, use sandpaper to remove the paint of the base of the new saw blade, so you will be able to easily pull it free.

I bought a delta scroll saw model number 40-540, the blade was broken. I need to know how to change the blade and what type of blade the saw takes. Thank you


your delta scroll saw has two blade attachment points one under the table and one in the arm. attach under the table first and then in the arm. that way you can be sure to adjust the tension properly.

there are only two styles of scroll saw blade, those with pins and straight blades without pins

look carefully at your saw and you will be able to see which type holder you have

REPLACE BLADE IN MOD #172.171800 8.0 A, CRAFTSMAN, RECIIP SAW


If you see a set screw where the blade goes, loosen it a few turns. Then run the saw, it should spit out the broken blade. If it has a manual release for the blade, press the release while tapping the blade holder.
