    You need to loosen the 2 Allen bolts using a hexagonal key through the slots in the shield. Remove blade, insert new and then re tighten Allen bolts.

No need to remove shield.
You need to loosen the 2 Allen bolts using an hexagonal key through the slots in the guard shield. Pull out old blade, insert new and re tighten.

How do I release the blade on a Pendulum pjs550 jig saw so I can replace it?


Hi Helen,
Push the reciprocating head protecting your hand with a glove if necessary. All the way to a center point just above the shoe or table of the tool. Then loosen the two fasteners that bind the blade keep horizontally from the spool head. An Allen head is a six sided wrench. Where a Torque style is a star style. Either equivalent in a T-handled wrench works best. On to removal.

Support the spool head from shifting around with one hand whilst torqueing the fastener counter clockwise to remove or loosen it to free the blade. Should the blade be seized or jammed in the well of the spool head. Use a pair of needle nose plyers to free the blade by vigorously shaking then pulling.

All of this should be done with the electrical plug removed from power to protect your safety. For me. Safety glasses should always be worn.

Change blade Black and Decker jigsaw 7568 Type 1


I had a heck of a time. The set screw was not anywhere I could acess it. Finally figured out that the motor had stopped in the 'up' position. Once I got it back down the set screw was right there.

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.

How do you put a new blade into a Black & Decker JS4000 Type 1 jigsaw


There is a black plastic switch where the blade is slid into the jigsaw. The black plastic switch can be seen and accessed from the front of the jigsaw through the clear plastic sight guide...You pull the black switch toward the bottom of the jigsaw and it opens the space for the blade to slide into, when you release the switch it will close the space and lock the blade into place.

Hope this helps.

My Hitachi cj 110 jig saw blade keep falling out I have tried different types of blade What?s the deal with that? I don?t know why someone would put a quick release holder on a blade shaft of a power tool...


WOW everyone really cant figure out the problem??? Take your jigsaw blade and hit it with some coarse sandpaper or a dremel and knock the finish off the edges and sides depending on maker and it willl work just fine. The blade companys put a super slick finish on the blades. not the saws fgault.

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.

Cant unscrew the cover to change the air filter on my 2001 honda civic. the screws just turn


When that happens, remove the whole filter housing. Either take it to a machine shop, or purchase a jigsaw blade and cut off the errant screw

Hope that helps.
