There is a vacuum diaphragm inside the saw that draws the bar oil out of the resevouir and onto the bar, if there is any leak at all in that vacuum system, it will not draw any oil to the bar. Also, the oil outlet at the bar may be plugged with saw dust, check that first.

A piece of a broken blade is stuck here the blade fits into the saw (Dewalt DW 303m). How do I get it out?

Craig, a drop of penetrate oil and you will just have to work at it with ice pick.small screwdriver, or needle nose pliers if you can, make sure you have blade release depressed while trying to pry blade shank out. Once you get it moving it will fall out. Clean and blow out blade port before inserting another blade.

How do we get the blade out

You need to provide more details like what type of tool, what model, whether or not the blade release lever is functioning, or if it an older model with a set screw holding the blade (pre-blade release lever). Provide photos (if possible).

I'm going to assume you are talking about a sawzall here.

If it is an older model with a set screw, then there will be a hole, or slot on the side near the blade.

First line up the set screw with the slot.

Insert the appropriate size Allen wrench into the set screw by going through the slot.

Turn the screw counter clockwise several turns until the blade will wiggle loose.

*Be careful not to take it all the way out. They are a pain to put back in sometimes.

If the blade doesn't start to wiggle after a few turns, then it might be a little rusted. It happens sometimes. Even when kept in the garage if you live in a humid area. Spray a minimal amount of penetrating oil into the blade Chuck near the base if the blade while holding the saw nose up. Be careful not to flood your saw with penetrating oil.

It's good practice to lubricate this part often with a dab of oil.

If you have a modern saw with a quick release lever, its near the nose of the saw on the side. Just pry it up. It shouldn't take much pressure. If it's hard to pull, then your blade Chuck is frozen. Do not try to force it. It can break your blade release lever (been there, done that).

To fix this, move your blade shaft to its longest position. Hold the saw like above nose up, and lubricate lightly. Prop it up, and let it sit for a while.

When you come back, bring a pair of small channel locks, or slip joint pliers. Give the blade slot another small squirt of penetrating oil. Wipe down the blade Chuck with a rag to get the excess, and then grab it with your pliers and twist it in the same direction as the spring slot is pointing. Always turn it towards the slot. It's like a convenient little arrow to guide you.

This should break the release loose freeing up your blade. Take it out, open it again and relubricate it.

Should you happen to break your release mechanism, well... Things just got tougher. Now ya gotta find some parts. That's a lesson for a different day.

How do I adjust the amount of oil that goes on the blade. It seems to dump a lot of oil on the blade and blade guide. Goes everyplace

Sorry but this model is not equipped with an oil flow adjustment screw.

The clutch cover area must be saturated with lubricant to properly lubricate the bar and chain and
to ensure the long-term durability of your chain saw.

One thing you could try is to purchase a slightly thicker oil. I got some once at a auto part store and it had anti-sling ingredients.

Need to remove sticky residue from rock saw interior

I would use some sort of degrease product in the system to remove the oil residue . I believe that if you read the instructions it would say when cutting rock use only water to cool the diamond blade . Cutting oil is used only on certain metals to lubricate the saw edges and teeth as well as cooling and never in a concentration above 25% as it affects the cutting ability of the blade. For example concrete cutters use diamond saws and tap water when cutting

Need to know how to get the blade off the miter saw to replace the blade

First, make sure it's unplugged.

On many saws the guard mechanism partially covers the bolt that holds the blade in place. Loosen and move the part out of the way as recommended by the manufacturer. On this saw you loosen a screw and then slide the mechanism up and towards the rear.

Press the spindle lock to lock the blade in place. Turn the bolt clockwise - opposite the normal direction - to loosen and remove it. Remove the outer blade washer and the blade. Leave the inner blade washer in place. Wipe a drop of oil on the surfaces of the blade washers that touch the blade.

Put the blade on the saw so that the teeth point down. Putting the blade on with the teeth facing in the other direction can result in serious injury. Put the outer blade washer in place. Turn the bolt counterclockwise until it is snug, plus another 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Replace the cover and you're finished.

I have an Remington 3.25 (Peak Hp) 16"/40, 6 cm electric chain saw, And I have just a few questions 1.) Does it take oil/gas or just oil and if so what kind. 2.) How would I tighten the chain, its...

It uses oil only to lubricate the chain. The type of oil in not critical although special chain saw oil is available. If you use anything but chain saw blade oil, make sure that it is a light oil, both in viscosity and in colour because it is a total loss system and dark or dirty oil can become very messy. The chain adjustment is on the body at the end of the blade, it actually moves the blade in or out to set the chain tension. The chain should be tensioned that when it is pulled at the bottom, the guides of the chain should not quite come out of the slot in the blade. If the chain is too tight it overheats the blade and stretches the chain.

Chain oil keeps leaking can I stop it ???

First, make sure you're using bar & chain oil, it's very thick and won't leak out like motor oils will. When you're done using the saw, store it with the blade side of the saw up. Not always convienent, but the oil will run away from the blade oil channels and not leak out.

Blade stuck in reciprocating saw

The pin is probably stuck in the blade. This happens from time to time after they get dirty. Take some WD-40 or some other type of penetrating oil and spray a little in the blade holder while working the release lever. It will probably free right up.

Motor not running properly

It's hard to know for certain without some more specific information about the saw, such as make and model #.
On many saws there is an arbor lock, a button you push down that prevents the blade from turning and allows you to loosen the nut. On some saws, that nut is reverse threaded, depending on which side of the motor the blade is on. If it's on your left as you hold it, good chance you're trying to tighten it instead of loosen it, and that's why it won't come off.
If there's a hex head shaped plug on the body of the motor, this is access to oil, but check the manufacturer's recommendation for the right weight of oil to put in there. Often it's a heavy weight gear oil, instead of plain motor oil.
If you'd like more specifics, I can try to look it up for you if you reply with info on your saw...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
