Changing the blade on my Bosch GST 2000

Hi

Can anyone please tell me how to replace the blade in my Bosch GST 2000 jigsaw. I've managed to get the old one out after a lot of twisting the part at the top of the handle, but cannot get the new blade locked into place.

Any advice appreciated.
Thanks
John

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 the h... do i cabnge the blade on the bosch 1582 cutter ??


I am assuming you are asking because you have a CLIC system.

Bosch uses a tool-less blade changing system for its jigsaws that it calls "Clic." The system makes changing blades fast and simple. With the simple blade changing you get with the Bosch jigsaws, it is no problem to change out a dull blade.

REMEMBER: SAFETY FIRST LAST AND ALWAYS!!!


Make sure the saw is unplugged or the battery is removed.

If you have a blade in there:

Hold the saw over a work bench and push the ejector lever to the center of the front of the saw. There is a center stop; you will feel it. The blade will eject and fall out


Insert the new saw blade into the plunger until it latches into place. The teeth should face toward the front of the saw. The back of the blade should rest in the groove of the guide roller. The plunger and the guide roller are between the body of the saw and the plate

If the blade will not go into the plunger, check the positioning of the slots in the blade. They should be at the top. Push the ejector lever and try again.

Give the blade a yank to check that it is firmly seated. Plug the saw back in or replace the battery and proceed with the cut

Use protective gloves when handling blades. They can be sharp and can be HOT.

I hope this helps

This jigsaw seems to suffer from the same problem as its predecessor. Whenever i use it to cut through a kitchen worktop or any material it never gives a straight vertical cut through the material but...


I can't speak to the diffuculty you're having with that particular model, as I haven't used it. But in general, the stability of the cut depends upon the guide mechanism of the saw, and a three point guide is better than two point or single point. A three point guide assemble will hold the blade firmly locked when inserted into the column, will have a roller bearing that supports the center of the blade path, and will also have a finger pinching mechanism at the base near the material, so the blade can't waffle in the cut. Aside from changing saws, all I can recommend is that you make sure the base is correctly locked in place at an angle square to the blade, when fully extended. Check this with a small trysquare against the base, and look from both sides of the blade. Some folks will even attach an auxiliary base to stiffen theirs up, though this shouldn't be necessary. Then make sure you're using a sharp blade with the correct tooth count for the material you're cutting, and don't force the cut. Let the saw do the work, and make sure you hold the base firmly against the worktop as you cut. If you force a cut with the orbital action on full, you'll get more deflection.
Other than that, all I can say is that I've had good luck with the newer Bosch jigsaws, and the best cut I know of comes from the Festo, but we're talking serious dollars there.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I couldn't find that specific model number Bosch saw, but here is the link to get user manuals from Bosch in case you mistyped it. (It's a long link that wouldn't all fit here, so I had to put a carriage return in it)

Hope that helps.
