Not economically. With the low price of sawzalls today, it's cheaper to buy a new one and keep the old one for rough cutting.

How do I change the blade on model #17224 saber saw?


Are you talking about a reciprocating saw? What brand? If this is what you're referring to, then there is usually an Allen style set screw at the base of the blade. Loosen the set screw with an Allen wrench, and replace the blade. Retighten the set screw and cut away.

Milwawkee sawzall rotated shaft


If this is an older sawzall there is a bushing in the back plate that aligns the spindle. There is a service fixture for proper alignment. If this is a newer one you have a problem also in the gearcase that would need to be looked at. You can go to milwaukeetool.com and with your model number and serial number download a schematic for this tool . Let me know if you need more assistance and if you do I would need the model and serial number also.

How do I change the blade on a Craftsman 10"


Hi Tom, W/D here.
There are usually three different ways that blades are installed and/or removed. All require that the power be removed from the saw first (pull the plug, please).
1. The most common method involves a shaft lock, so look for this first. It will appear as a button on the motor, near the blade. When you depress the button, you'll need to rotate the shaft/blade by hand until the lock sets in place in the shaft. Then, while still holding the shaft lock button down, use a wrench to loosen the blade. (Look at the threads to make sure that you are turning in the right direction, as this may be reverse threaded).
2. Less common is a shaft that has an allen socket in the end of it. Place the loosening wrench on the not, then place the allen wrench in the end of the shaft.
3. If all else fails, you can, VERY carefully, wedge the blade down into a piece of soft wood such as pine, then loosening the blade with a wrench. Make very sure that you keep all of your bodily parts out of the line of fire when using this method, as the blade can turn suddenly, and you don't want to have anything caught up and cut by the blade.
Hope this helps, Best regards, --W/D--

How do I change the keyless chuck on a cordless drill/


Remove the REVERSE-THREAD screw at the bottom of the chuck. Set the clutch collar to the highest setting, and set the gear to the slowest setting if this drill has a 2 speed transmission. Remove the battery! I have performed this with the battery in back in my noob days, and getting an allen wrench in your rib because you accidently hit the trigger will only happen once. You will never forget that experience. Get the biggest allen wrench you can fit in the end of the chuck(the shortest leg) and tighten the chuck down around it, allowing the jaws to rest and tighten on the flats of the wrench. Lay the drill on its side(chuck toward you, handle to the left, and allen wrench to the left, horizontal to the deck. Then with a hammer(soft hammer if you care about the allen wrench) quickly and deliberately hit the allen wrench in an attempt to cause the allen wrench to spin counter clockwise. You have only a few to several attempts at this before you risk damaging the clutch, so make the first one count. Follow through like you are attempting to hit something 6" below the allen wrench. If this does not do the trick before you shell the clutch/gearbox, you are looking at an expensive undertaking, most likely a new drill. I have only shelled 2 clutches out of literally tens of thousands of chuck repairs, so don't worry, just be aware. Let me know how it goes!

Blade stuck in keyless chuck on sawzall. pin or spring must be broken. Any suggestions on how to get the blade out


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 do not have a manual for my mastercraft maximum 13 inch planer and would like to know how to remove the blades for sharpening


If it is anything like my 12 1/2 inch mastercraft planer you will need to remove the dust guide first, and then the drum with the blades will be visible. To remove the blades you need to loosen the bolts with the appropritate sized crecent wrench. Seems to be the only part of my planer that does not require an allen wrench actually.

Change blade


depending on how new the saw is there are only 2 ways to change out the blade. the older saws have a allen head screw that you must loosen or remove to take te blade off. this screw is located on the shaft at the top of the blade. shed some light on it and look for a slot above the guide.the screw will be either on the right side or the left side. Newer models will have a quick release on one side or the other,it will look like a little lever,you just flip it out with your thumb the old blade drops out then you install the new blade flip it back and your back in business.
