SOURCE: changing the saw blade on a Ryobi Mitre saw

There may be a push button type blade lock, and on many of these saws the retaining bolt for the blade is backwards threads, e.i., looking at the top of blade retaining bolt, turn it clockwise to loosen. This would normally tighten, but in the case of many of these saws, it loosens it.

Just buy a file and push 3 or 4 down strokes down the same slope of the cutter toward the sharp edge. Never file on the flat top of the cutter, only on the slope. Support the frame using a saw horse or pick-up bed. The support makes the file cut the metal better. You can do the same thing with chain saws. You just need the file that fits the cutter. You just hold a consistant angle and count out the same number of strokes. Also, clean out junk between the moving parts, tighten any loose screws, and drop a few drops of 3 in 1 oil between the moving parts. Having things sharpened at a shop is inconvenient and expensive.

SOURCE: How do I replace my mitre saw blade?

It should still easily fit a 5/8" blade. The arbor shape shouldnt have any effect on the type of arbor hole needed on the saw blade (only round arbor holes are made on saw blades. You will probably find the arbor securing nut has a shape that fits into the flat gaps between the saw blade and the arbor when fixed. So grab a 5/8" round arbor saw blade and give it a go. It should work fine.
It is the arbor nut that secures the blade onto the arbor via friction which holds it on.

SOURCE: loose replacement blade

I completely removed the blade and put it back on, tightening the locknut, and now it works perfectly. The blade has not come loose and have used the machine for the last 3 months. The only thing I can think of is that somehow I didn't have the blade correctly installed in the first place, although it didn't wobble or anything.

SOURCE: ryobi 18v circular saw owners manual - blade is loose!

Usually there is a button to press that locks the shaft arbor and then you use a wrench to tighten OFTEN is a left hand thread!

Check for lock button behind the blade guard toward the motor.

Jigsaw dc330 blades keep poping out when used


Hi Paul,

When inserting the blade, turn the saw upside down to prevent the blade from moving while tightening.

Before inserting a new blade, check the receiver for obstruction or debris that may prevent the blade from properly registering with the tightening screw.

Make sure the blade is fully seated in the receiver before tightening.

The tightening screws that secure blades on any type of reciprocating saws (Jig, Scroll, Sawzall, etc.) are constantly under stress and do wear out. If the problem continues, it may need to be replaced.

Best regards
Mike

I have a milwaukee jig saw, 6268-21 that I cannot load blades.


Yes the Milwaukee 6268-21 does require the use of certain jigsaw blades. You have to use T-shank type blades. You push the tension lever hold it while putting the blade in as far as it will go, then you release the tension lever slowly and it will engage the blade. You should then check by pulling on the blade to make sure it is seated properly and will not come out.

Jig saw model 7580 type 4, replacement for blade clamp


There is no model 7580 Jigsaw. The only model close to that I can see would be the 7588 Type 4. Unfortunately that part is unavailable for this model. You may want to contact your local Dewalt service center and see if there is a substitute for that part.
