I have a bosch jigsaw and the blade keeps slipping out of the roller blade guide after it runs normal for a few seconds. ive reset the blade and changed it.


Hi Rebecca, I hope this helps;
BLADE INSTALLATION
Set the blade orbit selector lever to position III.
Push blade change button downward as far as
it will go and turn the top handle three turns
counterclockwise (viewed from the top of the
tool).
Insert the blade into blade plunger at a 90°
angle to the cutting direction. With a slight
upward pressure, turn the blade teeth forward
(direction of cut) and guide the back of the
blade into the groove in the center of blade
roller guide. Pull gently down on the blade to
seat the blade tabs in the plunger.
With the blade in the proper position, turn top
handle clockwise until a noticeable "Click" sound
is heard, indicating that the blade is locked in
place.
Push blade change button upward to its
original position (flush with the top of the top
handle), and the saw is ready for use.
Removing the blade is essentially the reverse
of the installation procedure, however, take
note that once the blade change button is
loosened, gently push the blade upward to
release the blade tabs from the plunger.

Bosch b4300 jigsaw blade replacement


To change the Bosch B4300 blade - If the grey knob does not turn to release the broken blade, you need to use a LONG THIN flathead screwdriver down the center hole at the top. Unscrew until the broken blade is loose. Pull out. Replace the new blade and then screw the it tight through the same hole at the top. DONE.

I need to use my late husband's jigsaw but can't get the old, bent blade out. How do I do it and which blade do I replace it with? I need to cut a few cms off the width of a kitchen worktop. I...


Hi Jen,

It depends on whether you have an older or newer model jigsaw. Bosch makes the newer ones with a button you push that will release the blade.
On an older jigsaw, look at the handle from above the jigsaw directly in line with the blade. You should see a screw in the top of the handle. Use a screwdriver and loosen this screw, don't remove it, and when the screw is loose enough, you'll be able to pull the blade out. When you put the new one in, slide it in the slot until it seats.

A rule of thumb is to use the blade with the wider gap and larger teeth on wood, the smaller teeth on metal. Most blades will say bimetal on the metal cutting blades.
Now, the courser the teeth the rougher cut you'll get. So, if you want a nice cut, don't use the blade with the largest teeth. Move down to the next largest.

I don't have a Bosch, so am not sure which codes are for which blades, but you can't go wrong if you go by the size of the teeth.

You didn't say what material the worktop is made of. If it's wood, the second largest toothed blade should be fine.

If you've never used a jigsaw before, I could suggest a couple tips that would help you get a nice job done.
First, put a piece of painters tape or masking tape over where you will cut, draw your line and go easy. The tape will keep the blade from giving you a roughed up top edge.
When you get near the end of the cut, hold a piece of scrap wood flat against the back edge to prevent tearout.
Also, let the saw do the work, don't push it.

Hope this helps, If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up, Thanks,

How do you put a new blade into a Black & Decker JS4000 Type 1 jigsaw


There is a black plastic switch where the blade is slid into the jigsaw. The black plastic switch can be seen and accessed from the front of the jigsaw through the clear plastic sight guide...You pull the black switch toward the bottom of the jigsaw and it opens the space for the blade to slide into, when you release the switch it will close the space and lock the blade into place.

Hope this helps.

My bosch jigsaw keeps saing sideways!!!


Most Bosch jigsaws have a handle on the top of the main handle that you need to pull up and rotate counterclockwise to allow the screw to accept the blade. Insert the blade and rotate 90 degrees into position then tighten the handle and press back down into place. In the beginning it may seem like you are going to break the handle pulling it up but rest assured it will get easier as it gets used.

How to change blades on Bosch 1587AVS? Need operator's manual.


hi, the toolfree blade change on these works as follows... (unplug from wall first)

directly above the blade on the top on the jigsaw will be a small black part (it may say sds on it ... it does on mine), this needs to be raised up about 1/2"

in this position begin turning the black part counterclockwise... it may be stiff at first don't panic. if you hear a 'clunk' you've gone the wrong way... again don't panic this will not have damaged anything just don't do it again...

do a couple of turns then wiggle the blade ... repeat untill the blade can be turned 90degrees either way.

at ninety degrees to normal cutting position remove blade... place new one in (at 90degrees again) push in as far as it will go then turn to cutting position.

start turning the black part clockwise while holding the blade in the correct position (you might need your knees)... keep going until you hear a resounding clunk

i always like to get one further clunk out of the jigsaw ... then stop turning, stow the black part, check blade is firm, plug in and away you go...

good luck

I do not know how to install blade and have no manual


Most of the skil jigsaws have a plastic piece with a spring and catch behind it. Just push your blade into the tool and it should lock. When you want to remove it you need to press the plastic lock collar up and it will release the blade. Some of the earlier models weren't as easy to set the blade in and you have to press the lock collar up insert the blade and let the collar down around the blade to lock 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!
