Question about Dewalt DC330K XRP 18v cordless Jig Saw Kit with All - Metal Keyless Blade Change

1 Answer

Blade comes out while sawing

While sawing a 2x4 with my DeWalt DC330 Jig Saw, the blade comes out when it meets the slightest resistance. I was using a DW3700H blade at first. I changed to a DW3710 and got the same result. I have not used the saw a lot and it is fairly new. This problem just started happening. The blade seems to be seated very well. I can't pull it out with pliers, but it comes out shortly after I start cutting.

I have used the same tool. Make sure that the blade release/ hold tab is engaged. Maybe the return spring is fouled or stuck. Try some lubricant.

Blade catch wears out too fast
I loved this tool when it was working but after not that much use the teeth that hold the blade under pressure no longer hold hard enough to prevent the blade from coming out. The mechanism that holds the blade has no catch hole, it uses a few serated teeth to pressure hold the blade in place. Unfortunately, once the pressure starts to lessen you can't tighten it down...

Got a dewalt dw321k. Bought it new years ago. Cannot get a blade into it at all. Undone the top but still can't get blade in. Any ideas??????


These t-top blades are not obvious in how they fit, but fortunately they have been around long enough that there are lots of people that can help you. It may be humiliating, but just take the saw to any hardware or home-improvement store and ask somebody there to show you how it works---- or you could save face by leaving your saw at home and just asking for help with one on display! Just about any saw that uses this style of blade (which is most of them now) will work the same way, so you don't even have to find your exact same model. Good luck.

How to use the splintering insert for the de330 jigsaw


The only reference to the insert is in the manual for your jig saw. If you don't have it you can download one from the Dewalt service website at http://servicenet.dewalt.com/. Find your tool by searching for your model number in the Find Parts box. The manual doesn't go into very much detail but there are instructions on when to and when not to use it and a picture of it installed on the saw.

Borrowed this model.. Need to change blade. Can't figure out how. Please advise. Thx.


this is a keyless change system and there is a lever on the side that you need to lift to remove/install blades. This tool uses the "t" shank blades. If you still need assistance go to Dewaltservicenet.com and in the middle of the site at the bottom type in the model number and you can view this manual online or download it, It is 7 pages long. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Blade keeps falling out. What am I doing wrong?


ive had this problem many times, first make sure you have the right blade, then you need to make sure you are seating it correctly, and tightening correctly.

Jigsaw dc330 blades keep poping out when used


Hi Paul,

When inserting the blade, turn the saw upside down to prevent the blade from moving while tightening.

Before inserting a new blade, check the receiver for obstruction or debris that may prevent the blade from properly registering with the tightening screw.

Make sure the blade is fully seated in the receiver before tightening.

The tightening screws that secure blades on any type of reciprocating saws (Jig, Scroll, Sawzall, etc.) are constantly under stress and do wear out. If the problem continues, it may need to be replaced.

Best regards
Mike
