SOURCE: Changing blade on Dremel scroll saw

I would suggest calling Dremel direct at 1-800-437-3635 and asking for tech help. You might also try their website at Dremel.com, but I have been there and you need to know the exact model number. Let me know and I will dig deeper.

SOURCE: blade wont stay in Bosch 1882VS jig saw

From your description I cannot say for certain, but it sounds as though you are not locking the blade correctly, or the blade lock mechanism is broken. You can tell if the blade-lock is working by clicking it. It should make an audible "click" that you can feel. Also, you can pull on the blade ( with the saw UN-plugged of course!) and feel if it is properly seated. If you are operating the blade-lock according to the instructions and it still doesn't lock positively, see a service center before you use the tool again. A broken blade-lock could be dangerous.

SOURCE: after changing the blade on a bosch 1587VS jig saw

I would recheck the installation of the blade and the tightness. If still a problem there is a spring under the lever that might have broke (they tend to do that) and is jamming the spindle. Let me know and I will help you with the breakdown for this tool

SOURCE: change blade 1587 Bosch avs

are you using the "T" shank blades and also are you loosening the spindle enough to allow the blade to turn, sometimes you have to push up a little to turn it and also pull away from the roller guide. Let me know and also there is a TINY spring in the top of the spindle that has a nasty habit of breaking and winding around itself not allowing proper operation.

How do I change a saw blade on a scroll saw


Which Scroll Saw are you using...there are multiple brands and multiple models. Help us out and tell us which one you have.

Most of the time there is a clamping mechanism that holds the top of the blade in place. Many models have a door or some access point to the lower end of the blade, too, which you'll have to get to as well.

You'll also usually find that there is some type of blade tension device that needs to be released and then reset before you can install and use a new blade. Make sure the new blade is the same length as the old one, also, make sure that it's the same type of blade, some have a small pin top and bottom, some do not.

Finally, check out YouTube and see if anyone has put up a video for your brand of Scroll Saw. May be the answer.

Good luck and be safe.

Which way do i turn the nut to loosten the blade on a bosch gcm 800s compound saw?


I can't find a Bosch model GCM800 saw in their library but regardless; all arbor nuts, bolts, etc. that hold on blades will loosen if you turn them in the same direction the blade spins when cutting. This makes them self tightening so the blade won't come off while in use.

How the h... do i cabnge the blade on the bosch 1582 cutter ??


I am assuming you are asking because you have a CLIC system.

Bosch uses a tool-less blade changing system for its jigsaws that it calls "Clic." The system makes changing blades fast and simple. With the simple blade changing you get with the Bosch jigsaws, it is no problem to change out a dull blade.

REMEMBER: SAFETY FIRST LAST AND ALWAYS!!!


Make sure the saw is unplugged or the battery is removed.

If you have a blade in there:

Hold the saw over a work bench and push the ejector lever to the center of the front of the saw. There is a center stop; you will feel it. The blade will eject and fall out


Insert the new saw blade into the plunger until it latches into place. The teeth should face toward the front of the saw. The back of the blade should rest in the groove of the guide roller. The plunger and the guide roller are between the body of the saw and the plate

If the blade will not go into the plunger, check the positioning of the slots in the blade. They should be at the top. Push the ejector lever and try again.

Give the blade a yank to check that it is firmly seated. Plug the saw back in or replace the battery and proceed with the cut

Use protective gloves when handling blades. They can be sharp and can be HOT.

I hope this helps

My Bosch 4000 blade will not go down any farther than an inch above the top of the table.I have checked and cleaned all the gear area and can see nothing that is causing it .


First of all, love the saw. As good as portables can be, the 4000 is really great.

Now, just remedied the blade height adjustment problem, here is how:

Unplug saw.

Removed blade....not easy when you cannot raise the blade, flip the saw upside down and remove the plastic shield, turn saw upright and remove blade.

Used my compressor with blower attachment and blasted all of the dust out of the gears and screw rods with saw upright and upside down, bevel saw to 45 degrees to gain more access..

Sprayed quite liberally with silicone spray lube and gently worked blade height adjustment, adding more lube, cranking wheel, more lube....blade adjustment now works like the day I bought the saw.

DO NOT USE WD40 or the like. This will just attract more dirt in a very short amount of time.

We'll see how the silicone spray holds up.

Good luck,
RjW

I have borrowed a Makita SJ401 scroll saw. How do


Scroll saws generally have to be loosened in two spots. One spot is above the blade near the tip of the arm. The other is generally below the plate. Most scroll saws come with a special tool that has an allen wrench type end accompanied by a round peg that is inserted just above or below the spot for the allen wrench.This peg type end helps to hold the tool in place and keeps the saw arm from moving around. The other end of the tool has a handle.
Hope this helps.

Rs20 bosch case falling apart


If you loosen the screws at the end of the saw that hold the boot on you can carefully snip the the rubber around the holes. This will alow you to remove the boot without dismantling the front of the saw. The boot is glued and they are sometimes difficult to remove.You can carefully take a flat blade screwdriver to peal the boot off and re-use it. Hope this helps
