SOURCE: Changing the blade in a bosch pst 65 pae corded jigsaw

Pull up the knob on the front at the top of the machine and push the yellow bit forward. Theoretically you should turn the knob anticlockwise three turns but it doesn't seem to make any difference on my one. Then take hold of the blade, ease it forward and turn through 90 degrees. You should then be able to pull it out. Replacement is, as they say in all the best manuals, a simple reversal of the procedure. When you are turning the knob clockwise this time it's supposed to click in place but my one doesn't do this and still seems to work.

Best of luck

Gavin

The blade can be replaced by unscrewing the screw found on the shaft.

SOURCE: bought a jigsaw a bosch pst 54e how do i change

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

A bosch PST 54PE jigsaw...the blade falls out when in use


If it works like mine, you need a long, thin screw driver (flat) to tighten a screw that holds the blade. The screwdriver goes in, in line with the blade, on the opposite side.

I can not find my instructions for the Dewalt321 jigsaw so i therefore cannot replace a blade that fell out


Most Dewalt manuals are available here: https://servicenet.dewalt.com/Home . There are 40 Dewalt power tools with 321 in the model number. Several are jigsaws. There are two types for the DW321 (TO3PAK-2LE JIG SAW) jigsaw. Please look at the label on the jigsaw to ensure that you get the correct model and type. The direct link to the manual for the DW321 Type 1 is currently https://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=402086-01,DW321.pdf&productId=2841&productType=3001&documentId=24909&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/402086-01,DW321.pdf .

To change the regular blade on the DW321 type 1, unplug the power tool. To remove the blade, pull the knob on the top of the jigsaw up about 1/4". Rotate the knob counterclockwise until the clamp opens. Do not force the knob after it stops. Insert the blade making sure that the back edge of the blade fits into the support roller. Rotate the knob clockwise until it clicks and then push it down.

I hope this helps.

I have a craftsman jigsaw(scroll) that I got for Christmas last year. The blade comes out in the middle of my cut some time. Is there a problem with this type of jigsaw?? I have sanded the top of the...


Most of the time the cause for this is applying to much pressure on the blade as you are cutting. Remember, the blade does the cutting and you are guiding the jigsaw around the cut. This can strip the blade and wear the top of the mount. Adjust the way you cut and you should not have any problems.

Change a blade on a jigsaw


They all either have a screw at the side of the blade holder, or some have a hole in the top of the machine where a screwdriver is inserted and a screw loosened to release the blade, and retightened once the new blade is inserted.
