SOURCE: change blade on old model Black & Decker circular saw

I drp a screwdriver through one of holes in the blade; that "locks the blade" when the screwdriver comes up against the sole plate. Works great for tightening as well.

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: 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.

I have an old Dremel scroll saw model 550 and need blades. However, the blade holder is missing a clamp that secures the blade. Is there a universal kit I can purchase to solve problem?


Try going to a store that sells scroll saws and look at the new models to see how they hold the blade. Take your Dremel with you. Maybe you can find one that is similar enough that could work if you can get the part. Then go to the tool company's web site and search for the manual for the comparable tool you found - they all have on-line manuals nowadays. You should be able to order the part you need. Good luck!

I have a Dewalt scroll saw and all of a sudden the cuts are irragular. it is fatter at the bottom then it is on the top, which makes for a bad fit. I have tired changing blades, made no difference. ...


Check the bearings in the lower part of the blade drive assembly (take the blade out to check) which may be allowing the mechanism to wobble. Also, check the mounting bolts holding the mechanism to the table. Hope this helps!

Smoking


Couple things I would look for first the condition of the blade do you see any buildup around the teeth like something has burnt on it. Also look into the area around the blade under the table (unplug saw first) to make sure that something hasn't dropped into it rubbing blade causing smoke. Also turn the blade by hand to make sure turning freely. The smoke could possibly be coming from a bearing. If it less than a year old Bosch has a pretty good warranty and you might look into that also. Let me know and I will dig deeper into it.

I have a bosch jigsaw I purchased at auction.I can't figure out how to change the blade


There are two types of "quick release" mechanisms on the new Bosch jigsaws, the twist-top handle found on 1587 models, and the lower-lever found on the 1590's. 
The "twist-top" is the black cap on the 1587 at the front of the saw. You must first put the orbiting control ( on the side of the saw ) to position number III. This releases pressure on the blade. Then you lift the black cap, rotate three or more turns counter-clockwise ( as seen from the top ) to release the locking mechanism. If the saw blade is cool, you can carefully remove it with a single one-quarter turn using your fingers. If the blade is still hot from sawing, use a pair of pliers, but be gentle. Hot blades can bend easily and jam.
The 1590 models are quite a bit easier. You still want to put the orbit control to position III to release pressure. But the quick-release is a simple flick of the black switch on the front face of the saw. 
I still have my 30 year old Bosch with the screw-in blade holder. It still works and the saw still runs smooth as a sewing machine. If you are doing a lot of production work where you need to change blades frequently, the Bosch 1590 is the clear choice for quality and value. In thirty years of using Bosch tools, I have only had to do normal maintenance and had only one minor failure, which was the blade changing mechanism on the 1587 model. I broke it by tightening too far. SO, if you have a 1587 model, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. As it is, this non-warrantee repair only cost $16 bucks and took two days.
It should go without saying, but just to be safe I'll say it anyway... OBVIOUSLY, you should UNPLUG the tool when you are changing blades. Good luck!
