How do you change the saw blade on a kobalt keyhole saw?


You'll need a flat head screw driver and a pair of protective gloves. This saw resembles a gun. There are 3 key points to review. The first is in the front of the saw, there are 2 pivot points (one sits on top and other is on the side). They resemble dead bolt locks. The second point is in the middle, and resembles a round button. The last point is towards the back of the gun, sand resembles larger dead bolt lock.

Put on your protective gloves.

The change the blade, place the saw, blade side up on a steady surface. With your left hand, hold the saw blade down. Use the screw driver with your right hand and wedge the screw driver between the last point and the blade. Push down on the screw driver to create enough leverage to push the blade forward, past the final point. The blade will shift out of position, beyond the current locked position, and release the blade. It may need a little push, but it will eventually pop out of it's current position. Be careful when it unlocks, my saw blade flew across the room! Hope this helps.

Just received a used Bosch B4200 jig saw and I can't figure out how to change the blade. This is the first bayonet style blade jig saw I've owned. I don't see a screw to release the blade.


If this is similar to mine, (sorry I don't recall the model number, but it's a GREAT saw!) there is a knob or lever on top of the handle that you pull up about 1/2 inch. Then you turn that handle 3 or 4 turns (counterclockwise) to unscrew the clamp holding the blade. When you do this you can't see anything happing, but the blade can then be pushed into the holder just a bit and twisted 90 degrees, then you can pull it out. Installation is the reverse. Don't overtighten the handle, just turn it clockwise until it stops, then back it up until it lines up with the handle and you can push it back down. Good luck, Please vote if you found this helpful.

I have a DW938 and I cannot get the blade to lock into place seems like there is no lock at all.


Hi, If you look at the end where the blade goes in, on the right hand side (as holding it for use in your hands) you should see a yellow lever. First take out the battery, each and every time you change the blade. Lift up the lever, wear some gloves to protect your hand and pull the plade straight out. Push in the new blade with the teeth pointing down, and push the yellow lever down. You can replace the battery once you have completed the above. Hope that was of help to you.

Sabre saw- craftsman - 17256 - change blades


This saw uses a tool-free blade change. 1. Unplug the jigsaw 2. Place your finger on the lower edge of the see through blade guard, and pull it forward until it locks up in place 3. Lift the tool-free blade change holder (bright yellow piece above the blade), and insert the blade into the slot of the tool-free blade change holder. 4. Release the tool-free blade change holder to lock the blade in place. 5. Pull down on the blade to verify that the blade is securely locked in place. The teeth of the blade should be pointing forward and down. 5. Put the blade guard back down.
You can use with both 'T' & 'U' shanked blades.
Feel free to ask me any other questions about this saw.

Can't find my owners manual. How do I change the blade. Bolt hits on a guard that covers the arbor. On a DW713 combination saw.


Removing the Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. Raise the arm to the upper position and raise the lower guard as far as possible.
3. Loosen, but do not remove guard bracket screw until the bracket can be raised far
enough to access the blade screw. Lower guard will remain raised due to the position
of the guard bracket screw.
4. Depress the spindle lock button (Fig. 3) while carefully rotating the saw blade by hand
until the lock engages
5. Keeping the button depressed, use the other hand and
the wrench provided to loosen the blade screw. (Turn
clockwise, left-hand threads.)
6. Remove the blade screw, outer blade clamp, and
blade. The inner blade clamp may be left on the
spindle.
Installing a Blade
1. Unplug the saw.
2. With the arm raised, the lower guard held open and the
guard bracket, place the blade on the spindle against
the inner blade clamp with the teeth at the bottom of
the blade pointing toward the back of the saw.
3. Assemble the outer blade clamp onto the spindle.
4. Install the blade screw and, engaging the spindle lock,
tighten the screw firmly with wrench provided. (Turn
counterclockwise, left-hand threads.)
5. Return the guard bracket to its original position and
firmly tighten the guard bracket screw to hold bracket
in place.
WARNING:
• The guard bracket must be returned
to its original position and the
screw tightened before activating
the saw.
• Failure to do so may allow the guard
to contact the spinning saw blade
resulting in damage to the saw and
severe personal injury

How does one remove a broken blade from a Bosch rs20 blade holder


twist the collar around where the blade fits in the saw. It will lock in the open position. When you insert the new blade, do so firmly until the collar releases locking the new blade in place. Give a tug at the blade to make sure it is locked in.

I have a bosch jigsaw I purchased at auction.I can't figure out how to change the blade


There are two types of "quick release" mechanisms on the new Bosch jigsaws, the twist-top handle found on 1587 models, and the lower-lever found on the 1590's. 
The "twist-top" is the black cap on the 1587 at the front of the saw. You must first put the orbiting control ( on the side of the saw ) to position number III. This releases pressure on the blade. Then you lift the black cap, rotate three or more turns counter-clockwise ( as seen from the top ) to release the locking mechanism. If the saw blade is cool, you can carefully remove it with a single one-quarter turn using your fingers. If the blade is still hot from sawing, use a pair of pliers, but be gentle. Hot blades can bend easily and jam.
The 1590 models are quite a bit easier. You still want to put the orbit control to position III to release pressure. But the quick-release is a simple flick of the black switch on the front face of the saw. 
I still have my 30 year old Bosch with the screw-in blade holder. It still works and the saw still runs smooth as a sewing machine. If you are doing a lot of production work where you need to change blades frequently, the Bosch 1590 is the clear choice for quality and value. In thirty years of using Bosch tools, I have only had to do normal maintenance and had only one minor failure, which was the blade changing mechanism on the 1587 model. I broke it by tightening too far. SO, if you have a 1587 model, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. As it is, this non-warrantee repair only cost $16 bucks and took two days.
It should go without saying, but just to be safe I'll say it anyway... OBVIOUSLY, you should UNPLUG the tool when you are changing blades. Good luck!
