Question about Black & Decker Scroll Jig Saw Blade

Open Question

Black and decker KS631 jig saw. Whenever I start using this jigsaw, the blade starts cutting and then it gets pulled out by the material being cut. The blades are the quick connect ones where you pull a lever up, insert the blade and via the spring loaded lever, it moves back into position holding the blade. Any help would be good as this is so frustrating when you only get to cut 1mm before the blade comes out!!! Thanks

SOURCE: my husband has a BLACK & DECKER JS515 VARIABLE

Here is a link to the instruction manual, and just under the place where it says Save These Instructions it tells you how to change the blade.,JS515.pdf
Fitting the saw blade (figure A)
- Hold the saw blade (9) as shown, with teeth facing forward.
- Push the lever (3) downwards.
- Insert the shank of the saw blade into the blade holder (10) as far as it will go.
- Release the lever.

There is a little lever where the base of the blade fits into the holder that you depress to release the blade...You can see a picture of it in the manual.

I hope this answers your question...if so, please take a aec to rate this post...thanks.

SOURCE: Black and Decker JS305 blades come out. The only

I'm thinking the blades that go in Jig Saws are and have been standard since the late 80's. Once upon a time, blades were held on with a collar and a set screw while today they have a fat part that locks into the collet.

Can't find the proper blade at the Depot, my advice would be check with Black and Decker directly.

When I searched B&D, the first hits were Sears (Maybe at K-mart) and Lowes. Home Depot didn't come up at the top. You might find the blades you need at your local Ace or Sentry or Tru-Value or other brand hardware store. Be nice to support your local merchant, your neighbor.

Anyway, try here for your parts

I hope you find this information fruitful

Don't bother. Return it to the store where it was purchased. No tool should malfunction that early in its life.

SOURCE: I have a JS660 jigsaw.

That is a common problem with those saws... the blade holder is a POS....
Some engineer's idea of a better idea that don't work in the real world...

Here is another review of that saw...

Don't know what else to tell you except that you may have to use a different saw....
I usually use my Milwaukee Sawzall for that job....I can place a longer blade in that and it works much better then a jig saw...

I have even used the old hacksaw standby already in a tight space...the bolts are brass and if you can get a groove halfway through you can break the top off from there...

Ensure that blades are sharp, the material you are cutting is not greater than the rating of the saw.

When I try to cut with my saw, the blade bends so that the cut is at an angle. Because of this angle cut, it is difficult to follow a line but even if I can follow the line, the angle cut through a 3/4...

This is a common issue with jig saws. There are sometimes larger blades, but all seem to distort to some degree. The only real solution is to go slow enough to allow the blade to return to it's normal shape...Essentially, is sounds like another tool would work better, but often you are scrolling with a jig saw and circular saw (for example) would not work.

The other workaround involves several cuts, so the final cut is removing much less material.

Problem guiding the direction of cut with a jigsaw.

check that surface plate is square with the blade.don't push too hard,or force the saw,let it cut at it's own speed,guide rather than force.a scroll saw or band saw is more accurate as you control the work piece instead of the tool.

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.
