Can't figure out how how to insert a new blade in my Bosch PST 6800 jig saw

I've lost the hand book for my saw and can't figure out how a new blade fits in. Not sure which position the red locking colar should be in to allow the blade to be inserted.

SOURCE: Problems with Bosch T101BR 4 Inch 10 Tooth Jig Saw Blades

Hi, The reason for a down cutting blade is to see your cut on the finished side of laminates ( which include veneers, plywoods, plastics, formica . When using an upcutting blade on laminates the smooth cut is on the bottom, which you can not see till you are done and turn the work over. Reversing the teeth allows that smooth cut to be on the top. This is usually done on smooth flat surfaces as you have found out and does not work with orbital or tight scrolls. As far as the pushing or pulling, smooth cuts in laminates require the saw doing the work at a speed that allows the teeth to cut and remove material with biting. So if you are biting, (This is a much slower process than pushing your jigsaw through regular wood) check that you are not pushing too hard and that your blade is still sharp. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: what is the process

There is a lever on the handle, you have to pull it up and rotate it counter clockwise about 3 times (shouldn't take any more than that. The blade will be loose now,put in the new blade and turn the back lever clockwise until it clicks. The blade should be tight,push the lever down and move it into the slot in the handle.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: after changing the blade on a bosch 1587VS jig saw

I would recheck the installation of the blade and the tightness. If still a problem there is a spring under the lever that might have broke (they tend to do that) and is jamming the spindle. Let me know and I will help you with the breakdown for this tool

SOURCE: change blade 1587 Bosch avs

are you using the "T" shank blades and also are you loosening the spindle enough to allow the blade to turn, sometimes you have to push up a little to turn it and also pull away from the roller guide. Let me know and also there is a TINY spring in the top of the spindle that has a nasty habit of breaking and winding around itself not allowing proper operation.

How do I change the blades on a Bosch PST 2000 jigsaw


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)
http://www.boschtools.com/Service/ProductServices/Pages/ManualsandPartsDefault.aspx
Or they may have a similar saw under a new model number. Here's the current model number of a very popular saw that has a less-than-obvious blade changing method 1587avsk

Bought a jigsaw a bosch pst 54e how do i change the blade.thanks


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

How I change the blades in the Rs 15 saw machine bosch


To lock a blade in just push the blade in until you hear it click. This is what engages the blade. To disengage just turn the blade clamp until the blade pops out. This will lock it open until you insert a new blade.
