I had that problem with my 1587. Turns out I had bought U shank blades and the 1587 uses T shank blades. Bought some new T shank blades all is good now.

I took the plastic piece off the top. Two phillips below where chord goes in and two star one on top and one under black cap. Once I had it dis-assembled I tried to tighten it with the top off. This seemed to work.

It sounds like you need to replace the shaft.

Bosch b4300 jigsaw blade replacement


To change the Bosch B4300 blade - If the grey knob does not turn to release the broken blade, you need to use a LONG THIN flathead screwdriver down the center hole at the top. Unscrew until the broken blade is loose. Pull out. Replace the new blade and then screw the it tight through the same hole at the top. DONE.

I don't know how to get the blade to stay in.


You have a set screw on the side of the blade holder, usually an allen head, some jig saws have a clamp through the top, a screwdriver down through the top will grab it. Check it out.

Installing blade on a bosch jigsaw


The black part on top of the handle must be pulled directly up about 1/2 an inch. this engages the screw mechanism that loosens the blade. For some people doing this the first time feels like they are going to break the handle but it moves easier over time. Now turn the black handle counterclockwise several turns and the blade will hang loose in the holder. Turn the blade 90 degrees and remove it. Place a new blade in and turn back 90 degrees. Tighten the handle on top until it clicks. Align the black handle to the main handle and press back down into place.

My bosch jigsaw keeps saing sideways!!!


Most Bosch jigsaws have a handle on the top of the main handle that you need to pull up and rotate counterclockwise to allow the screw to accept the blade. Insert the blade and rotate 90 degrees into position then tighten the handle and press back down into place. In the beginning it may seem like you are going to break the handle pulling it up but rest assured it will get easier as it gets used.

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
