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...

Bolt is put in wrong in Coleman furnace blower so we can't get motor out


If the improperly installed 'bolt' is in a location easily accessed, try clamping tighly a pair of vice grips on the head of the bolt to facilitate removal. I'm assuming 'put in wrong' probably means it is jammed in 'cross threaded' and you're unable to turn it correctly with a correct wrench.

If you're referring to the 5/16" square headed set screw that holds the blower wheel to the motor shaft, once the entire blower assembly is removed from the furnace cavity, access to the set screw is through the side of the blower wheel. If the wheel is attached with an allen screw instead of the 5/16" square head, access is either the same as for the other, or if you have the long
extended allens, look for a notch in the blade directly over the set screw location.

If they dont pull off easily then they are attached with set screws on the outside of the knob. Rotate the knob an you should see a small hole with either a flat bladed screw or allen set screw type. Could be torx as well. Dont strip screw.

Makita 2012nb planer. The drive (top) sprocket keeps stripping out the flats on its arbor hole and the allen bolt loosens and backs out. Not sure which happens first. I've tried high strength loctite...


I think your screw is broken you should change the screw which attach the rollers and the blade. If you start a machine, screw turn out and let the roller stop rolling that means your screw and the ring are broken, you have to change them.

Casablanca stealth fan light scrapes against blade surround


There are two probable causes. One, the light housing has been pushed/bent up into the rotating assembly, which is possible if the fan were ever removed from the ceiling and sat on the glass.

If it has never been removed however, the most likely cause is that the Allen Set screw on the flywheel has loosened allowing the flywheel to slip down the motor shaft. It's a purely mechanical problem and if memory serves, to get to the flywheel, you remove the light pan and it's right there. Find the set screw, loosen it enough so that the flywheel is easy to move up and down and raise it up a bit and then cinch it down tight. It's a fairly common problem and for the life of me I cannot understand why Casablanca would not use loctite on that set screw. I mean you pay $500+ for a fan, it should outlast you, right?

I need to replace the blades on a Sears Scroll saw. Model # 149236160


Your scroll saw should have come with Hex end tools to use when changing out the blade. You must release the tension on the blade (located on top of arm above blade). There is a small allen head screw which has to be loosened with an allen wrench to release the blade. There is also an allen head screw under the working surface which will have to be loosened to remove blade at the bottom. Replace blade at the bottom 1st, tighten up then go to the top, tighten it, then reset the tension and you're ready to saw again. Make sure to get a visual on the directions of the blade teeth before you remove it so you can replace the new one the same way. I hope this is helpful.
