Milwaukee jigsaw with blade change problem

I have a 12 years old Milwaukee jigsaw with quick blade (t-shank same as Bosch) change mechanism broken. I co-worker always manages to change blade, but he is gone and I don't know how. The repair shop said the part costs more than $70 and not worth to replace it. It is still a great tool, if I can manage to change the blade. Thanks

Quick-Change Blade Mechanism
Higher-end models, such as the Linefinder Orbital Jigsaw, feature a clamping lever to hold the saw blade. To change a blade, switch off the jigsaw, unplug it, and let the used blade cool down. Pull up the saw-blade locking lever and let the used blade fall out with a slight shake. Turn the jigsaw upside down. Hold the fresh blade with its teeth forward; insert the blade shank into the blade holder as deeply as it will go. Release the lever and wiggle the blade to confirm that it's snugly in place. For models with rollers, such as the Accu-Trak, nestle the blade against the rollers.
Clamp or Hex Screws
Loosen the pair of screws -- on the front of the mechanism of models such as the single-speed jigsaw -- a full turn counterclockwise with a flathead screwdriver, but do not remove them. The used blade will fall out. Insert the new blade fully into the clamp. Lightly tighten each screw alternately and then fully. On older models, you may find a single hex screw on the side of the blade. Loosen this enough to remove the blade, and then insert a new blade carefully so the teeth face forward. Retighten the screw.

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.

My bosch jigsaw keeps saing sideways!!!


could be the yoke inside that is loose, unplug the tool and lock the blade in and see if you can turn the blade by hand. also make sure that you are using the right shank blades and lastly is the locking mechanism fully engaging the blade. Let me know the model number if none of these help and I will look at an explosion for you.

Replacing blade?


at the top and front of the saw there is a plastic handle. Pull up and rotate counter clockwise 1/2 or full turn maybe more. remove and replace blade and rotate clockwise (handle) and push it back down.

I have a milwaukee jig saw, 6268-21 that I cannot load blades.


Yes the Milwaukee 6268-21 does require the use of certain jigsaw blades. You have to use T-shank type blades. You push the tension lever hold it while putting the blade in as far as it will go, then you release the tension lever slowly and it will engage the blade. You should then check by pulling on the blade to make sure it is seated properly and will not come out.
