toolpartsdirect.com has schematics plus you can order the parts there also,, but in my opinion that pin might have been part of the screw and it simply broke off

SOURCE: how do I disassemble a craftsman 10 amp

To remove the front half of the saw:

1. Remove the two screws that hold the guide shoe
2. Pull and wiggle the guide shoe straight forward and out.
3. Remove the metal support from the front of the rubber boot by prying it out of the groove.
4. Using a pick or a very small screwdriver, pry the retaining pin from the blade release handle and remove from the front. It removes without much friction.
5. Remove the blade release handle through the side of the saw by wiggling and releasing the return spring.
6. Remove the rubber boot off the front of the saw by gently prying near the center of the saw and firmly pulling.
7. Remove the six screws to remove the black plastic dust cover.
8. Remove the remaining two screws and lift the grease guard to access the reciprocating mechanism, being careful not to drop the needle-bearings. This area can be packed with grease.

The handle part of the saw is self explanatory.

My question on 1/3/17 on repair of BLADE CLAMP on Craftsman saw model 315.171081. NO ANSWERS


Dear Vernon,
Sorry about your "no answers" question.
I only answer questions when I have time every few weeks or months, and perhaps none of the other "answer people" knew what to tell you.
So.
I looked up your reciprocating saw on "SearsPartsDirect", entered your model number, and found your saw listed.
There are pictures for you to select the parts you want, and you can order any part they stock from them.
You can also find the part number and order new or used parts from "e-bay."
Unfortunately, you will need to find someone to install the part, it seems.
God bless your efforts.

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.

Boot on the saw.


You are probably wanting to repair/replace the blade holding assembly. The boot does come off with persistence. You will have to remove the foot piece first (two screws). Try using long thin screwdrivers as shoe horns and be persistent. I agree that it is a poor design. Why the new improved blade lock assembly I'll never know. The nib breaks off that fits into the hole in the blade and then there is nothing to hold the blade. If all else fails to get the boot off you can cut it and order another boot. Remarkably, the boot isn't that expense. Unless you feel you can make a replacement pin you'll have to order the entire blade lock assembly and it cost about $20. I had the reciprocating saw for a tear before I used it and the holder broke on it first outing! Being loyal to Craftsman in the past, I hate to admit that these days many of the power tools are cheaply made Chinese junk. My advice, don't spend much to repair, cut your losses and buy DeWalt, Skill, etc. Hope this helps.

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.
