Question about Saws
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?

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.

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.

The DEWALT tool-free system ensures quick and easy changing of saw blades.
• Pull the rotating handle (10) up completely. • Unlock the handle by rotating it as shown. • Insert the saw blade into the blade holder (8)
guiding the back of the blade into the groove of
the guide roller (6). • Turn the rotating handle (10) towards locked
position until a click is heard. • Press the rotating handle halfway down
(freewheeling position) and continue rotating the
handle towards locked position. • Press the handle (10) down completely. • To remove the saw blade proceed in reverse order.
