Why can't the screw be tightened?


First of all, the blade has to be seated correctly on the spindle and the screw hand tightened to hold it in place. Next, a locking device such as a screwdriver has to be inserted crosswise between two teeth to prevent the blade from rotating. With the blade locked, the screw can be tightened. Finally, be sure to remove the locking device before operating the saw.

Why won't my saw blade go on tight. the mechanism that secures the blade won't tighten down good enough.


You need to make sure the blade is centered properly on the washer on the spindle as you tighten the nut. It can slip off while you tighten the nut. Tighten the nut a little at a time while you wiggle the blade to make sure it's seated properly in the washer.

Changing blade scroll saw


Loosen the knob at the rear of the top arm - turn it counterclockwise several turns. The blade should now be loose. Push the "blade end" of the top arm down slightly with one hand while you unhook the top of the blade. Lower the blade a little to unhook it from the bottom arm.

Replace the blade. Hook it onto the lower arm first - you can look underneath to see what you're doing. The blade's teeth should point DOWNWARD - it's easy to accidentally install it the wrong way, so check that now. Again push down slightly on the end of the upper arm, then hook the top of the blade into the upper arm's blade holder. It should how stay in place, but loosely.

Now return to that tensioning knob at the top rear. Tighten it slowly until the blade is BARELY tight, not loose. Tighten the knob 1/2-turn to one full turn tighter to tension the blade.
