Hi,
I have found that my sawzalls get stuck when I cut through pipes with water in them and then the relase gets rusted...drywall dust also creates problems...
WD-40 has been very helpful in getting the release to work and get the blade out...it may take sometime for the WD-40 to work into the release, but I also try to set the saw so that it will run down into it...
give it a few shots and then slowly get it working...
patience is the key...

Saw blade jammed - cannot remove


Unplug from power. Spray blade locking mechanism with wd40 or similar lube. 1. If you have a quik release, work the release with a pair of channel locks while wriggling the blade. If not removed, you can remove the footplate from the saw and drive the pin out that holds the quik release in place, paying attention to how the parts reassemble. 2. If you have a set screw retainer, totally remove the retainer.

Milwaukee sawzall blade


Cut or snap the blade off at the end so you can get the holder apart. I have had to do this before. Usually you can just use a set of pliers and work the blade back and forth until it snaps off but I just use an air powered cut-off tool and cut them.

How to get take apart a hasbro model C-029A


With a flat screwdriver (or similar) pry up the left-hand side of the blade release button. Expand the seam down the side of the lightsaber to get it to release. Inside, there is a metal release that when pressed down releases the blade. It should connect to the plastic button somehow... I got it jammed in the "release" position (so the blade doesn't lock anymore) but that's better than it being stuck in "lock"...

Cannot get the blade out of the porter cable reciprocating saw


Hi,
Getting a broken blade our of the sawzall chuck can be difficult and require some ingenuity and patience...
Sometimes there be enough blade left so that you can grab it with a needle nose pliers... othertimes it is flush and that makes it more difficult... holding the chuck in the release position and rapping the saw against a table or with a hammer can jiggle the piece out....of course you have the chuck pointed down while you do that...
Also moving the piece around a bit with a stiff wire and also soaking the chuck and blade with WD-40 helps also....
Usually it will take a combination of these things and some persistance to get the job done...

I have a Ryobi RLT 30CESA with the strimmer attachment. What do I need to fit a Brushcutter blade to it


I would not put a brushcutter blade on this unit. The curved shaft quik disconnect may not hold up to the shock torque created by the brushblade. It may damage the drive shaft since it is a curved shaft quik disconnect model. You may have to purchase a straight shaft trimmer to get that job done.

I have a Milwaukee sawzall 6509-22 with a quick loc cam. Blade went in fine, but now the saw wont release the blade to come out. How do I fix this problem. Note: locking cam is turning fine


K you used the saw after inserting blade?? If so couple ideas, hold collar open and put saw blade in a vise and try pulling back on saw, or you can remove the quik lok cam and release it that way, its not that hard, but I would try vise first. Let me know

Milwaukee Sawsal Broken blade


Spay inside where blade fits in with PB BLASTER & let set a while. Maybe you will get lucky & the blade will fall out as it should. If not then it will have to be dissembled in this area. There are 2 BB's inside that fit into the small hole on the blade. They are forced in by a spring, be careful not to lose these. Also check the accuatator when you pull the finger release, make sure it is going all the way or it is not broken, Good luck.

Cannot get blade to release from Sawzall Quik-Loc.


Will the collar on the Quik Lok Turn and if so how much? What you can do is spray some WD-40 on the mechanism to free up the collar, sometimes it gets gummed up from cutting. It should open and close with a snap, hope this helps

6520 chuck problem


Hi, I'm not too struck on using WD40! It cleans down to bare metal and usually adds to the prob. Blow it out with compressed air, moving the chuck back and forth, then add a few drops of 3in1 oil. Try this first before opening a can of worms! LOL Frankster016
