I need to replace a KOBALT 15 inch aggressive tooth handsaw blade. I was told to throw the entire saw away and just buy a new saw ... REALLY? Do you sell just the saw blade?

Fixya site sells nothing
you can get new blades from a good tool shop or take the old band to a saw sharpener shop and have a new one made
the band length and width and will be on a decal under the lid that covers the band or on the machine somewhere
failing that , use a tape measure and measure the distance around the wheels ( as it if is a band) and that will be the length and then measure the width of the wheels and that will be the width of the band
make the measurement with the band tension adjustment all the way in so that if the band is a touch longer you can adjust the tension up

How to put the blade into the black and decker 3.4 amp powered handsaw


#1) You have to locate the blade release button on the saw (see your manual). The opposite side of the release button is a screw-like OVAL shaped PIN. To insert the blade, the direction( or position) of this OVAL shaped PIN has to match the OVAL shaped hole in the blade. You could use a screw driver to change the direction/position of this OVAL shaped pin. You have to push down the release button when you use the screw driver to turn.

#2) Hold the blade in Vertical position in your right hand. The "Oval" hole is on top. The teeth is facing your left hand. You will see that the "oval" hole on the top of the blade is a "horizontal" oval.

#3) Hold the saw (handle) in your left hand as if you were going to saw using your left hand.
Now peek through the hole of the saw and find the direction of the OVAL PIN. It has to be a "horizontal" (or lied down) OVAL. If it is not, use the screw driver to adjust it.

#4) Hold the blade using your right hand. Oval hole on top, teeth facing your left hand. Insert
the blade from the bottom of the saw. What you needed to do is to insert the PIN into the hole
of the blade. When you inserted the pin into the hole of the blade, slowly turned the blade upward, the blade will lock by itself.

New blades, new belt.. burning the wood when I try to maky any type of cut


Is the blade the correct one for the type of wood you are cutting?? There will be recommendations on the saw blade. Finer toothed blades are for plywood, etc. Aggressive or large tooth blades are for thicker wood.

I have a new JET JWBS-10OS. I bought it rather than a scroll saw because it is more versatile, but I do need it for scroll work. I purchased a 1/8 inch blade and had trouble with the installation. The...


Hi,

I'm not a Jet tech, just a bandsaw owner.
First, when you are adjusting the tracking knob, are you turning the wheel by hand for several revolutions to be sure which way it is running before making another adjustment? After tweaking it, you should turn it a bit to let it settle in. Also, be sure to tighten the adjustment knob down before turning it on.
The bearing guides have more adjustment places than just the finger adjusters. On mine, a Steel City, I can move the entire guide holders back and forth, and can also move the entire guide set up back and forth. The guides are there to keep your blade from having too much movement while cutting. They are not supposed to actually touch the blade though. I adjust mine with a dollar bill between the guide and blade. If you have one guide that isn't exactly perfect, don't worry about it. The blade guard will also keep the blade from wandering.
I've never used my bandsaw for scrolling work, so am not familiar with the 1/8 inch blade. Should work if you can get your tire adjusted correctly.

Good luck.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Looking for the 8 1/4 blades for the mastercraft chop saw.?


Hello. Mastercraft carries a variety of 8 1/4 replacement blades that are "normally" an in-stock item. The blade is labeled as a circular saw blade, not a chop saw blade.

  • standard 40 tooth Product# 55-6953-6 aprox $25
  • general purpose 24 tooth Product #55-6976-2 aprox $30
There are others that the store can order in, or to pick up on line as well. You may also notice, that the general purpose blade is rated for 8-8 1/4 inch, most of these two sizes have the same size arbour and will both fit on your saw - this gives you a varied selection. Hope this helps.

I have an old Sears Craftsman 7" Electric Handsaw model #315.27782. The blade I use for fine sawing has begun to wobble. I've taken it off, put it back on and tightened it several times. Same wobble. ...


It could be that the bearings that support the shaft that holds the blade are worn, allowing the shaft to move slightly and make the blade wobble. As the machine is an older model, I would try replacing the bearings.

We can't get the blade to go in


There should be a button on the right side of the saw to press in to open the clamp for the blade.

Blade changes require no tools. There will be a pin that engages the hole in the blades.

Delta 28-185 bandsaw cuts crooked after 4" of straight cut adjustments have been made as per manual


Sounds like your blade is getting hot, causing it to expand, causing it to be too loose. The blade gets hot when it's teeth are rubbing or scraping the material more than they are cutting. . You might see some improvement by increasing the blade tension and feeding the material a bit more aggressively. . But you will see greater improvement by using a blade with fewer teeth. For a given blade, the thicker the material is, the more teeth there are engaged in cutting at the same time, so each tooth gets a smaller share of your feeding force. . The optimum number of teeth that should be engaged in the cut at a time varies by the material, the style, quality and condition of the blade, and the rigidity of the saw---- but you can use 3 to 10 as a rough guide. . Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. Al Kupchella

I just purchased the ryobi 9 inch bandsaw, used it once or twice and have noticed that the teeth on the blade are crooked. is that a typical problem, is it a problem at all?


If you mean that the teeth alternate sides in which they point, this is normal. This aids in the blade clearing cut material from the path of the blade making sure it does not clog. Almost all saws for wood have this tooth pattern. If you have doubts look at a new replacement blade for the saw.
