How do I replace the pin?

I have a Craftsman Industrial 6.0A 120V reciprocating saw. I was changing the blade and the screw came all the way out. A small pin fell out - how do I replace that part? where does it go?

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

How do i intall a blade on a DW303 Reciprocating saw?


To install blade into saw:
1. Loosen set screw.
2. Insert blade shank from the front between the reciprocating shaft and the blade clamp.
Locate hole in blade over pin on reciprocating shaft.
3. Tighten set screw. If the blade should break off and the shank does not come out of the clamp,
be sure the set screw is loose and eject the shank with a nail or pointed object.

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.

REPLACE BLADE IN MOD #172.171800 8.0 A, CRAFTSMAN, RECIIP SAW


If you see a set screw where the blade goes, loosen it a few turns. Then run the saw, it should spit out the broken blade. If it has a manual release for the blade, press the release while tapping the blade holder.

Blade lock on Craftsman 10 amp recip


The guide foot comes completely out by wiggling and pulling a little harder than you would think. It is held in place by friction in addition to the two screws. Once the guide foot is removed, remove the front metal support piece by prying it out of the groove in the rubber boot. You can then access the pin and blade release lever. Make sure the return spring is in place on the rear side of the blade lock latch.
