SOURCE: change blade

depending on how new the saw is there are only 2 ways to change out the blade. the older saws have a allen head screw that you must loosen or remove to take te blade off. this screw is located on the shaft at the top of the blade. shed some light on it and look for a slot above the guide.the screw will be either on the right side or the left side. Newer models will have a quick release on one side or the other,it will look like a little lever,you just flip it out with your thumb the old blade drops out then you install the new blade flip it back and your back in business.

The blade broke off inside and I can't get it out. Please help me figure how to get it out.


moden jigsaw blades are held in with a taper chuck system
disconnect the unit from the wall socket
push the spindle all the way in
now press on either side of the blade holder and that should move down releasing the blade
now while holding that section down turn the unit right side up and the broken bit should just fall out

How do you change a blade on a Skil 4280 jig saw?


It is REALLY easy, when you know how. There is a black piece, the larger one, near blade insert...lift it and VOILA, you can insert or remove blade easily. I lost manual and spent forever trying to put blade in. Hope this helps.

I have an old bosch 158IVS uh, what do you call a little reciprocating saw? jigsaw? anyways i can't for the life of me figure out how to change the blade. i've undone every screw. opened up the motor...


well the sawzaw will be drastically different from the jigsaw, but the jigsaw will have either a round twist lock that needs to be turned a little to remove the blade, or two screws that hold a flat plate that clamp the blade. and as for the sawzaw, it will be a twist lock, or a latch lock, the latch lock will look like a lever that needs lifted to remove the blade, and the twist lock is the same as the jigsaw.

I do not know how to install blade and have no manual


Most of the skil jigsaws have a plastic piece with a spring and catch behind it. Just push your blade into the tool and it should lock. When you want to remove it you need to press the plastic lock collar up and it will release the blade. Some of the earlier models weren't as easy to set the blade in and you have to press the lock collar up insert the blade and let the collar down around the blade to lock it.
