SOURCE: Can a jig saw rip fence (Skil rip fence model No.

Yes, but not very well.
That is because the fence ridge is intended to rest on the edge of the wood, and if you want a circular cut, you need to attach to the center of the arc.
In order to do that, you would have to turn the fence over so that the ridge pointed up and did not impact the surface of the wood.
Then you need to attach a point of radius.
The best way I can think of doing that would be to drill a hole through the sheet metal, near the ridge, and near the shaft.
Then use a small nail or pin through this hole you drilled, to stick into the wood surface far enough for a reasonably steady pivot point.
Best I can thing of.
But you could also just use a piece of wire to the rotation point pin.

SOURCE: How do you change a blade in the Bosch Jig Saw

Pull the black knob on the top front of the handle up and turn it clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to loosen. I'd turn it counter clockwise at forst just to make sure it's loose enough to accept the blade when you start.

Model JS250Q type 1 Skil Saw - cannot seem to get the blade to stay in and cannot find the manual - could you possibly send a pic of the clamping mechanism?

product diagram is at this link; I suggest you remove the screw you use to tighten the assembly, install your blade and if there is a hole in the blade, try to visually line up that hole with the screw hole. Generally ,that screw has a nose that will pass the blade first, then tighten the clamping mechanism.

I need directions on how to change the baldes on a reciprocating saw.

There are 2 types of clamps that hold the blade in that type of saw.

Since this one most likely has the type where the blade is held in place with a set screw and a "U" shaped piece of metal that holds the blade tight against the shaft. There should be a screw hole in the shaft of the saw. The blade rest next to the shaft and then the metal piece clamps the blade against the shaft. This is all held in place by a set screw that screws into the shaft. This screw uses a hex key to remove and tighten it.

If your tool doesn't have this style then it should have a twisting clamp. This will rotate and release the blade. Sometimes a pliers is needed to loosen the collar, but not to tight tho.

How do I attach the replacement blade on my B&D jigsaw model 7504? I have the replacement blade but don't know how to attach it....

Locate the small hole with the screw inside it directly above the handle, which usually is in line with the blade. Loosen the screw with a flathead screwdriver. Once the screw is loose, gently pull the blade out from the unit .. this works with older Jigsaws for newer ones ,,Locate the release button just above the portal where the blade enters the body of the unit. Depress the button and gently pull the blade out from the unit.

Insert the new blade into the same portal that the old blade was removed from while depressing the release button. Ensure that the new blade is facing the same direction that the old blade faced. Once the blade is fully inserted into the portal, let go of the release button.
