I have a little bad news for you. Makita doesn't furnish their wiring schematics online and I checked a couple other sites and nothing but you can call 1-800-4625482 that is their free technical support line and they can get you one.

How do you change a blade on a Skil 4280 jig saw?

It is REALLY easy, when you know how. There is a black piece, the larger one, near blade insert...lift it and VOILA, you can insert or remove blade easily. I lost manual and spent forever trying to put blade in. Hope this helps.

No power on the jigsaw

could be several problems. If you are mechanically inclined and have a volt/ohms meter I would unplug the tool and remove the handle half and start the process of troubleshooting with the cord,,,, switch,,,, and go on from there till you find the problem. Usually it is a cord or switch that would be the problem.

Cannot remove blade as do not hve manual 4350FCT makita jig saw

Hello Aiden,

This Makita jigsaw does not use any set screw fasteners to secure the blade in the saw. It has a "tool-less" blade retainer, so all you need to do to remove (or install) the blades, is to twist the small knurled ring nearest the blade shank.

Be sure to unplug the jigsaw first and with the blade shaft fully away extended from the saw, (you can just pull it out by hand if needed) and then simply twist the round locking ring and then with your other hand, pull the blade out of the jigsaw.

I would suggest that you use a glove on the hand you're going to pull the blade out of the jigsaw with, as those blades can be very sharp with the jagged cutting edges, etc.

Here's a parts breakdown of the jigsaw, for your reference and for obtaining any replacement parts you might need in the future.

Makita doesn't have an owner's manual listed on their web site for this product. You will need to contact Makita directly to obtain a free replacement manual for your product. You can contact them at

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I need a replacement roller part for my Makita 4320 jigsaw

You can go to or
Both sites have a listing and a blow up diagram of your saw. So check there if the part is not on the diagram you may be able to call them and there may be a universal one or the right one available. They were the two most promising sites I could find.
