DEWALT DW933 JIGSAW BLADE HOLDER PROBLEM

On my dewalt dw933 jigsaw after fitting and tightening new blade the blade is not locked in the straight ahead position. It can be twisted clockwise and anti clockwise. i removed the blade and screwed the blade holder/clamp a little further on the shaft and this seems to have cured the problem. How far should the blade holder be screwed onto the shaft? when tightening the knob to lock blade advice is tighten untill ratchet is heard. On my saw i have never heard ratchet when tightening blade. Why is this? as i have no user/instruction manual is it possible to obtain one?

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: i can't find the lock nut tool

You should be able to use a wrench, unless you have the style that needs a spanner (ring with 2 holes in it). Then, you will need the wrench to fit it. I made one with a piece of 1/8" flatbar and 2 #10 bolts. It isn't pretty but it works.

SOURCE: HOW DO I REMOVE THE BLADE FROM A HEAVY DUTY

Commonly tightening/closing of tools is clockwise and opening is counter clockwise on its point of access. I think this reference comes from how we write or our reference on reading, right/left handed standard.

Other countries have different standard.

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.

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.

This is a PDF file of the Owners Manual for the Makita 4304T Jigsaw,

Jigsaw dc330 blades keep poping out when used


Hi Paul,

When inserting the blade, turn the saw upside down to prevent the blade from moving while tightening.

Before inserting a new blade, check the receiver for obstruction or debris that may prevent the blade from properly registering with the tightening screw.

Make sure the blade is fully seated in the receiver before tightening.

The tightening screws that secure blades on any type of reciprocating saws (Jig, Scroll, Sawzall, etc.) are constantly under stress and do wear out. If the problem continues, it may need to be replaced.

Best regards
Mike
