If it does not clamp then it needs checking out, it could be a bit missing.

SOURCE: I bought a Dewalt DW310 reciprocating saw and

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.

SOURCE: Saw blade loosens no matter how much or often I

There is a little blade retainer pin that is supposed to lock the blade in position. If you accidentally miss-align a blade when tightening the blade clamp, the tightening screw will "press" the retainer pin out, so that only the tightness of the clamping screw is holding the blade. You will get 10 to 30 seconds of cutting action, then the blade will loosen again, till the blade clamp screw strips.
Have not found a replacement blade-clamp anywhere.

How do I remove a sawzall blade in a ten amp Milwaukee that's flush at the keyless chuck?


Take the clamp apart by removing the spiral ring that holds the collar on and then remove the pin. Make sure you write down how to put it back together! Once you remove the pin everything else will come off easily! diagram the whole thing as you go!

My keyless chuck will not tightten all the way closed....seems to catch on something


Open the chuck and see if the screw inside the chuck has backed out. The screw is left hand thread so you will need to turn it to the left to tighten it. It may be an allen or Torx head screw.

Reciprocating saw problems cannot get broken blade out of chuck


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...
