Question about Saws

Open Question

Powerbase Xtreme 800W reciprocating saw.

The tool-free blade clamp ring is supposed to turn a few degrees anti-clockwise and clockwise, to insert and to remove the blade. But it won't turn, so i can't insert the blade. it turned yesterday, when I wanted to remove the blade, which I did, so I could replace the saw in its case. Do you have the same make and model? help!

SOURCE: I need instructions on removing the front housing

Hi again Guy, It is easy to overlook the obvious, I do it a lot. There are two allen screws in the rubber boot at the front bottom that need to be removed to release the foot (or shoe), which should slide out the end. Then the whole boot ( forward hand grip) pulls off the end exposing the assembly you need to replace. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: Reciprocating saw-snapped blade-cannot be removed

What I would try is to spray some WD40 on the pin first and then see if you can find a small screwdriver or punch and try pushing the pin in further to release the broken blade. It doesn't sound as though it is anything major, maybe a burr on the side of the pin or possibly rust or debris. DON"T hit the pin because you might damage it or push it in and never get it back out. Looked at a diagram and it appears that they used roll pins to hold the clamp in place so it might be that one is cracked or mushroomed and you might have to drive them out. I suggest that you go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number to look at the same diagram.

The spring loaded clamp sleve mechanically holds the blade pin down to hold the blade in place. It doesn't pull it up to release the blade but simply lets the pin float freely so the blade can be removed.

How do i intall a blade on a DW303 Reciprocating saw?


To install blade into saw:
1. Loosen set screw.
2. Insert blade shank from the front between the reciprocating shaft and the blade clamp.
Locate hole in blade over pin on reciprocating shaft.
3. Tighten set screw. If the blade should break off and the shank does not come out of the clamp,
be sure the set screw is loose and eject the shank with a nail or pointed object.

The blade clamp collar is a spring loaded knob of sorts that holds the blade in place. If you are not able to pull the blade shaft out of the saw to get at it, plug the saw in and hit the on/off trigger a few times to get the shaft and knob out of the body of the saw. Once you can get at the knob it should be easy to turn it and insert a new blade. Let me know if you have problems.
