Question about Bosch 1 - 1/8" Reciprocating Saw RS5
I have a bosch reciprocating saw and the blade is stuck in the chuck. The lever to release the chuck won't open. I tried WD40 to loosen it up, but no luck. Any ideas?

SOURCE: blade stuck in the chuck
If you have the lock released and can't get it out try pointing it towards the ground and running it. the piece should fall out unles it is still locked in

oohh, that a tough one. you gotta, very carefully peal back the hand gaurd, the rubber where you hold onto it, at. Then releas the screws undeneath. Seems like you should be able to cycle the saw to its furthest out position, then remove the blade gaurd, uning some pliers of some sort you should be able to make the release, release.
Hope this helps
