Missing skil jigsaw set screw


This will be a generic METRIC screw, take it to a fastener supplier and show them the hole, they can try out fit of a few METRIC screws to find the right size. Buy the screw/bolt that fits and hacksaw the head off it to make a set screw.

I need to use my late husband's jigsaw but can't get the old, bent blade out. How do I do it and which blade do I replace it with? I need to cut a few cms off the width of a kitchen worktop. I...


Hi Jen,

It depends on whether you have an older or newer model jigsaw. Bosch makes the newer ones with a button you push that will release the blade.
On an older jigsaw, look at the handle from above the jigsaw directly in line with the blade. You should see a screw in the top of the handle. Use a screwdriver and loosen this screw, don't remove it, and when the screw is loose enough, you'll be able to pull the blade out. When you put the new one in, slide it in the slot until it seats.

A rule of thumb is to use the blade with the wider gap and larger teeth on wood, the smaller teeth on metal. Most blades will say bimetal on the metal cutting blades.
Now, the courser the teeth the rougher cut you'll get. So, if you want a nice cut, don't use the blade with the largest teeth. Move down to the next largest.

I don't have a Bosch, so am not sure which codes are for which blades, but you can't go wrong if you go by the size of the teeth.

You didn't say what material the worktop is made of. If it's wood, the second largest toothed blade should be fine.

If you've never used a jigsaw before, I could suggest a couple tips that would help you get a nice job done.
First, put a piece of painters tape or masking tape over where you will cut, draw your line and go easy. The tape will keep the blade from giving you a roughed up top edge.
When you get near the end of the cut, hold a piece of scrap wood flat against the back edge to prevent tearout.
Also, let the saw do the work, don't push it.

Hope this helps, If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up, Thanks,

I need to know what size/type of jigsaw blade to purchase for my SKIL 4230 Model# F012423000.


The size and type will depend on your needs when cutting. Fortunately, this model can use both T- and U-shank blades.

My personal preference if for the T style as i find they hold better.

use this picture and info as a guide. When you go to hardware store look for a combo set for metal and wood.
metalworking will have fine teeth, woodworking will have larger teeth.

Setting up a jig saw to cut a straight 1/4 inch


Hi there,

You will need two C clamps and a straight edge,I use a metal yard stick.Whatever you use look down the edge a make sure it's true.

Set up on the line and make sure the blade is going to cut on the waste side of the line.Measure the distance from the edge of the wood to the other side of the jigsaw glide plate and make a mark.Transfer the measurement to the other end.I move the blade up just above the surface so I can set the jig saw on the wood while I get the measurements.The last step is to clamp the straight edge down.Make sure to have the clamps with the handles down.Check under to make sure you won't run into any thing and do a dry run to check for cord hang ups.This is the best way as long as you keep the edge of the bottom jig saw plate against the straight edge.^^^^ Well that's how I do it. good luck

You can all so use the T bar attachment that slides through the bottom plate and clamps down with thumb screws.Personally I like the straight edge.

Bandsaw stops cutting


the pressure you are pushing could be too hard or a dull blade. what is the HP of it? I use one for cutting metal bar up to 6 inch and wood. the HP of mine is 15 horsepower and wood will cut quick when solid steel is very slow. of course mine is industrial size with a 3 foot depth

I do not know to use the black and decker jigsaw.


Draw the circle pattern on the wood where you need it. Drill a 1/2 or 3/8 inch hole inside the circle, near the circle line. Insert the jigsaw blade into the hole and start cutting, following the line.

If you have the scrolling feature on your saw, don't use it, lock the scroll.
