I have tapped the bolster pivot pin with a small hammer to tighten loose knife blades, but you have to be careful not to scar the knife or smack the bolster pin too hard or the blade will seize and be hard to open or close. If the pin has been necked by the blade (worn in the middle where the blade contacts the pivot pin, you'll have to replace the pin.

SOURCE: need manual for remington electric chain saw 1,5

There is a slide bolt on the side of all chain saws that allow tightning of the chain. You loosen this bolt and slide the chain bar forward until you can just slide a dime under the chain and the bar. It may take a couple of adjustments as the chain stretches a little after it gets warmed up by the friction of the bar.

Mower Blade and shaft wiggle and scalped the grass

The blade is either bent from hitting something solid or it is about to become dislodged from the motor shaft and could hurt someone very badly,. Take spark plug wire off the spark plug, then lift mower deck up on two wheels and grab the blade to see if it is loose, tighten as needed. If not then visually inspect the blade, rotate it a few times noticing the depth of each side of the blade . If it is not rotating at the same height, in 360 degree rotation then replace it now.

Should I prefer fixed or folding blade?

This depends of the knife purpose and on your preference. What you should do is consider the following facts:

Fixed blade knives are stronger because the blade runs through the handle and therefore are good for heavy-duty work

Folding blades are easier to carry; they are not as strong as the fixed blades and they are harder to clean because of their pivot point.

I can NOT get the top of the cabinet open. I have tried the putty knife at 6 inches from the edges, as indicated everywhere, but no go! Whirlpool cabrio platinum wtw8800

Not sure that's how you get into your machine but if it is you need two putty knives or the like. You can feel the clips give a little when you insert the blades at the same time. Wiggle up and down. It'll come loose but it will leave marks scratches etc in the finish where you pried. You can use a towel to lessen the marks or tape wrapped around blade.

How to load blades on stanley #10-788

This knife is ****. To load... you have to push the slide all the way forward. Make sure the switch is set to unlock. PINCH THE BLADE WITH YOUR FINGERS AND WIGGLE IT INTO PLACE. Then you have to use every ounce of thumb power to relock the switch.

Once you are done, the blade will still come out in 9.9 / 10 times you cut something.

I recently dropped my knife with the blade open it fell into some rocks and the blade tip broke on impact.

You can re-shape the tip with a few steps.
Do not use a grinding wheel, it will heat the blade too much, and you will lose the temper of the blade.
First, use a file to take off metal. Start by filing off the 45 degree at the cutting edge caused by the break. After you get the right shape, a whetstone will smooth the edge out, and let you sharpen it. I fixed a Buck 110 folding knife fir my brother a few years ago. It is obviously shorter now, but holds a good edge and works fine.

How do i change the blade in a stanley fatmax?

You do not have to remove any screws. Extend the blade outward using the thumb slide on top of the knife. There is a small black pushbutton on the opposite side from the lock button. Depress the button on the side and using the other hand, grab the blade with your thumb and forefinger to pull the blade out. It may require a little wiggling. Now the new blade can be slide in and locked into place. The black pushbutton controls the locking mechanism that keeps the blade from pulling out.

If you use the wrong brand of blades, they won't let the knife shut all the way. The notch is cut slightly differently. The same is true for the Kobalt knife I just bought at Lowes. Get the Stanley blades that are right next to the knives - they are the only ones that work.


If you bought the Stanley blades, then I don't know what the problem is. Sorry for that too.

Acme juicer #6001, has a new blade, becomes unbalanced...

Hello, First, make sure the screw on clamp that holds the blade down is centering the blade correctly. Also make sure it tightens down firmly against the blade. Wiggle the blade to ensure it is mounted securely. If this doesn' fix it try your old blade again. If your old blade works you may have a bad, unbalance blade but I would suspect he screw on clamp knob may be somewhat worn and not securing the blade causing it to run "out of round" when a piece of vegetable pushes on it. If everything looks good with both blades and the blade securing knob it could be a worn bearing on the juicer. Try wiggling the motor shaft and see if there is any play in it. I have an ACME 6001 that is quite old so I wouldn't suspect the bearings are going. One other thing, does the bowl take 3 to 5 minutes to stop spinning when you shut off the motor? If it does then the shaft and bearing are probalby ok

Good luck with it...gary
