    Do you mean the saw is running backwards or are you trying to cut vinyl siding or something similar, there is a difference.

All electric motors are set up in the same way. (Please refer to the little schematic I have drawn below.) Different models are wired slightly different and please note that your particular saw may only be able to go in one direction. Also some fields have 4 wires instead of 2, and if this is your case please ignore the rest of this post and bring your saw to a professional to be looked at. If your saw is going the wrong way your motor may be damaged and will need to be replaced or at least tested with the proper equipment. With that said, there should be 2 wires coming from your field. Wires "B" and "C" respectively. One of these should go to your switch, and the other should go to one of the brushes. Wires "A" and "D" are coming from your brushes and as noted above one should be going to the field. Let's assume that wire "A" is directly hooked up to the white wire of the cord. And let's also assume the the black is hooked up to "C" of the field. "B" and "D" should be linked in this setup. In order to reverse the polarity of the motor you would switch the field brush setup. One field wire and brush wire should always be connected to complete the circuit. By changing the "B"-"D" connection to instead be a "C"-"D" connection with "A" still going to the neutral "white" wire and now the "B" wire going to the switch, you have effectively changed the polarity of the motor. ****Please note that some of these saws have an electric brake and should not be rewired in this manner**** Again if your saw just started going the wrong way one day, you should get it looked at by a professional repairer. There may be more problems that have caused this to happen,

I can not find my instructions for the Dewalt321 jigsaw so i therefore cannot replace a blade that fell out


Most Dewalt manuals are available here: https://servicenet.dewalt.com/Home . There are 40 Dewalt power tools with 321 in the model number. Several are jigsaws. There are two types for the DW321 (TO3PAK-2LE JIG SAW) jigsaw. Please look at the label on the jigsaw to ensure that you get the correct model and type. The direct link to the manual for the DW321 Type 1 is currently https://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/GetDocument?docName=402086-01,DW321.pdf&productId=2841&productType=3001&documentId=24909&translatedFileName=http://documents.dewalt.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/402086-01,DW321.pdf .

To change the regular blade on the DW321 type 1, unplug the power tool. To remove the blade, pull the knob on the top of the jigsaw up about 1/4". Rotate the knob counterclockwise until the clamp opens. Do not force the knob after it stops. Insert the blade making sure that the back edge of the blade fits into the support roller. Rotate the knob clockwise until it clicks and then push it down.

I hope this helps.

Wuich way should the teeth be facing on radial arm saw with or against rotation?


As you face the saw, the edge of the blade closest to you is going down. The teeth should be pointing down also. On any circular saw (table saw, miter saw, etc.) the teeth of the saw should point in the direction of rotation. It might seem odd because as you draw the radial arm saw toward you, the saw wants to "climb" and pull itself along through the material. Some saws are equipped with a damping device to prevent the saw from lurching forward, most are not. You need to pull the saw toward yourself slowly and steadily to keep it from climbing. good luck

How to change the blade?


I don't know if this will help you much but I've got a DeWalt 14 inch chop saw and a 10 inch miter saw and they both have a small lever on the right hand side of frame just behind blade If you depress this lever and slowly rotate blade until it drops into place this locks the blade for changing. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

How do I change the blade on a dewalt compound (12 in) miter saw?


With the saw unplugged - The blade needs to be locked in place so it will not turn when you put a wrench on the nut located on the left side of the blade that holds the blade on. This is done with a locking pin on the right side of the blade. Push the pin in and rotate the blade by hand until the pin locks into the blade and prevents it from moving. With the pin pushed in put a wrench on the large nut on the left side of the blade and turn it. This may be reversed threaded, so you may have to turn the nut clockwise in order to loosen it. When tightening the nut after replacing the blade, you will have to once again lock the blade with the same pin.
Perhaps this video will help you locate the locking pin.

Can't rotate the blade carriage.


I guess that you are releasing the handle for the tilt? When released does it feel like it did? Does the carriage move any? What I would do is unplug the saw and put it on a workbench or floor and carefully tilt the saw on its back edge, holding the guard to keep if from falling quickly. Look under the saw for a bent rail and if not try to push the saw tilt by hand pushing on the bottom guard. You might have to lubricate the slide underneath or loosen up the locking mechanism. If you need a copy of the owners manual I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number to download it. I really don't think it is anything major. Let me know
