Question about Bosch 1587AVSK 5.0 - AMP Top Handle Jig Saw with Case
I can not turn the broken blade sideways to remove it with needle nose pliers even after turning the release knob on the top of the handle multiple times clockwise. Upward pressure does not help.

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.

I would recheck the installation of the blade and the tightness. If still a problem there is a spring under the lever that might have broke (they tend to do that) and is jamming the spindle. Let me know and I will help you with the breakdown for this tool

are you using the "T" shank blades and also are you loosening the spindle enough to allow the blade to turn, sometimes you have to push up a little to turn it and also pull away from the roller guide. Let me know and also there is a TINY spring in the top of the spindle that has a nasty habit of breaking and winding around itself not allowing proper operation.
