Question about Bosch 1587AVSK 5.0 - AMP Top Handle Jig Saw with Case
I can't seem to get the blade to stay in my jig saw. I found a screw that was loose, down through the handle, but when i tighten it the blade starts to tighten but then also starts to turn clockwise and ultimately the blade is not sitting straight on the guide wheels. What am ai doing wrong ? ...PS I;m using bosch jigsaw blades.
From your description I cannot say for certain, but it sounds as though you are not locking the blade correctly, or the blade lock mechanism is broken. You can tell if the blade-lock is working by clicking it. It should make an audible "click" that you can feel. Also, you can pull on the blade ( with the saw UN-plugged of course!) and feel if it is properly seated. If you are operating the blade-lock according to the instructions and it still doesn't lock positively, see a service center before you use the tool again. A broken blade-lock could be dangerous.
