This saw has 3 orbital settings and one straight line setting .. in orbital mode the blade moves forward slightly on the up stroke and back on the down stroke .. it may be difficult to see and may not be pronounced without a load ...

Makita BJV180 cordless jigsaw. The blade jumps out of the round guide at the back and goes crooked to the left or right. How do I stop the blade from escaping its guide?


It's possible that the blade is not seating or seated properly, the guide is bent or out of alignment, or an incorrect blade length is being used. See my request for information, and supply an image.

Bjv180 blade snapped how do i remove it?


Hi
I don't have the actual answer, but this may help you!
http://www.makita.nl/images/files/onderdelen/nl/BJV180-TE.pdf

Just to state the obvious, you have slid the plastic piece to undo the blade holder?
See page 6 of the manual here
http://wiki.makespace.org/images/b/b1/BJV180_manual.pdf
Hope this may help.
If all else fails I would put some oil into the blade holder and try wiggling the holder. Failing that a bit of wire and some fine pliers. Failing that a good blast of air from the aircompressor to try and blast it out.
Good luck

I have a Parkside precision pendulum-action jigsaw, model number PPHSS 730. It has three blades... two for wood, one for metal.... but how can I tell which is for metal?


Tom,
The one for metal will almost certainly have the smallest teeth. Sometimes the metal one will a wavy tooth set - that is, if you viewed the blade from the front, there is a sine-wave shape to the tooth set pattern. (Tooth set means the tips of the teeth are bent a little bit to the left or right to make the cut just a little wider than the rest of the blade so that it doesn't get stuck in the cut.)
Good luck.

Makita concrete saw, no spark, new ignition coil.


Check clearance between the coil and magnet, too far away and magnetic field won't generate.

I have a Bosch Jigsaw Xcel PST. I purchased the Jigsaw about 6 years ago but it has not been often used. Recently the blade will not lock into and remain in position for cutting. I cannot find my manual...


You will need to obtain a new [Roller Lever Assy] from a Bosch parts dealer. Its a fairly simple install. This is a wearable part due to the pressure put on that portion of the tool during normal use.

Cannot remove blade as do not hve manual 4350FCT makita jig saw


Hello Aiden,

This Makita jigsaw does not use any set screw fasteners to secure the blade in the saw. It has a "tool-less" blade retainer, so all you need to do to remove (or install) the blades, is to twist the small knurled ring nearest the blade shank.

Be sure to unplug the jigsaw first and with the blade shaft fully away extended from the saw, (you can just pull it out by hand if needed) and then simply twist the round locking ring and then with your other hand, pull the blade out of the jigsaw.

I would suggest that you use a glove on the hand you're going to pull the blade out of the jigsaw with, as those blades can be very sharp with the jagged cutting edges, etc.

Here's a parts breakdown of the jigsaw, for your reference and for obtaining any replacement parts you might need in the future.

Makita doesn't have an owner's manual listed on their web site for this product. You will need to contact Makita directly to obtain a free replacement manual for your product. You can contact them at

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Makita 4304T. jigsaw blade Do not know how to fasten it?


On the top of the Makita 4304T is a knob, (Top/Front)
This is the blade Installing Lever.

Viewing the jigsaw in the direction you would use it, the Installing Lever is turned towards the Right. Keeping it turned, you then install the jigsaw blade. Once you have the blade up in the Blade Holder, gently release the Installing Lever.

I cannot get a perfect 45 degree angle with my Makita circular saw. Is it me or the saw??


When using the gauge on your saw it is off on the 45 degree cut? If so you might have to use a tri Square every time you want to cut a 45. Sometimes the lock gauge for the 45 angle may be off some. When you put a tri square on the board you cut it is not a true 45 even though the saw says it is?
