SOURCE: I bought a used black & decker jigsaw no. 7548

several methods 1) turn collar near top of blade. spring return. same in reverse to insert. 2)Older type may have spindle screw which draws up collets to clamp blade. access to screw may be through body directly over blade shaft. thats all for now.
cheers

SOURCE: bought a jigsaw a bosch pst 54e how do i change

In the handle directly over the blade is a deep hole. You insert a long thin bladed screw driver into this hole all the way down. Twist slowly and it will locate with a screw. Undo the screw and then twist the remaining piece of blade 90 deg and pull. Replace new blade in the opposite way. Twist it so that the cut is to the front and then tighten up the screw. Do not tip up the unit while doing this as the screw might drop out and you might loose it

You can go to ToolPartsDirect.com or eReplacementParts.com
Both sites have a listing and a blow up diagram of your saw. So check there if the part is not on the diagram you may be able to call them and there may be a universal one or the right one available. They were the two most promising sites I could find.

Why does my blade not sit straight on my Milwaukee jigsaw


First, with the power cord unplugged, check the squareness of the blade to the saw with a square, adjust the 'foot' of the saw (the part that sits flat on whatever you are cutting) to be 90 degree with the blade. To do this, usually on the back of the saw there will be a nut or a screw that holds the foot in place. Loosen it, and move the foot until the blade and the foot both touch the square along the entire surface of the blade and the saw 'foot' and retighten the foot. Many jigsaws have this problem.

Ks656pe how do i change the blade? i don't have any instruction. Please


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.

How to lock the jigsaw blade to make straight cuts on my Boschest 1587svs?


Use a straight edge guide. Clamp it on the work so the jigsaw can run against it. Be patient and go very slowly.

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,

How do you put a new blade into a Black & Decker JS4000 Type 1 jigsaw


There is a black plastic switch where the blade is slid into the jigsaw. The black plastic switch can be seen and accessed from the front of the jigsaw through the clear plastic sight guide...You pull the black switch toward the bottom of the jigsaw and it opens the space for the blade to slide into, when you release the switch it will close the space and lock the blade into place.

Hope this helps.

Just received a used Bosch B4200 jig saw and I can't figure out how to change the blade. This is the first bayonet style blade jig saw I've owned. I don't see a screw to release the blade.


If this is similar to mine, (sorry I don't recall the model number, but it's a GREAT saw!) there is a knob or lever on top of the handle that you pull up about 1/2 inch. Then you turn that handle 3 or 4 turns (counterclockwise) to unscrew the clamp holding the blade. When you do this you can't see anything happing, but the blade can then be pushed into the holder just a bit and twisted 90 degrees, then you can pull it out. Installation is the reverse. Don't overtighten the handle, just turn it clockwise until it stops, then back it up until it lines up with the handle and you can push it back down. Good luck, Please vote if you found this helpful.

Cannot remove blade as do not hve manual 4350FCT makita jig saw


Hello Aiden,

This Makita jigsaw does not use any set screw fasteners to secure the blade in the saw. It has a "tool-less" blade retainer, so all you need to do to remove (or install) the blades, is to twist the small knurled ring nearest the blade shank.

Be sure to unplug the jigsaw first and with the blade shaft fully away extended from the saw, (you can just pull it out by hand if needed) and then simply twist the round locking ring and then with your other hand, pull the blade out of the jigsaw.

I would suggest that you use a glove on the hand you're going to pull the blade out of the jigsaw with, as those blades can be very sharp with the jagged cutting edges, etc.

Here's a parts breakdown of the jigsaw, for your reference and for obtaining any replacement parts you might need in the future.

Makita 4304T. jigsaw blade Do not know how to fasten it?


On the top of the Makita 4304T is a knob, (Top/Front)
This is the blade Installing Lever.

Viewing the jigsaw in the direction you would use it, the Installing Lever is turned towards the Right. Keeping it turned, you then install the jigsaw blade. Once you have the blade up in the Blade Holder, gently release the Installing Lever.
