Question about Dewalt DW310K Heavy Duty Reciprocating Saw Kit

1 Answer

I bought a Dewalt DW310 reciprocating saw and there seems to be no way to install a blade. The instructions show a wheel to turn to unlock the blade chuck but the wheel is up inside the saw body where you can't get to it. The instructions show it accessible for turning with the fingers but it isn't. What's up with this??

The blade clamp collar is a spring loaded knob of sorts that holds the blade in place. If you are not able to pull the blade shaft out of the saw to get at it, plug the saw in and hit the on/off trigger a few times to get the shaft and knob out of the body of the saw. Once you can get at the knob it should be easy to turn it and insert a new blade. Let me know if you have problems.

Open the yellow tab on the side of the blade guard and lift the blade out. Install a new on and close the tab. If the blade has been damaged, it may need to be pried off the locating pin at the attachment point.

Sometimes if you take the set screw completely out and then use a flat blade small screw driver to wege open the throat you can use a dental pick to get it out. Spray it first with wd40.

Hope you weren't using those cheap blades from harbor freight - that is how I learned that trick - bought the dental picks from harbor freight.

How do i intall a blade on a DW303 Reciprocating saw?


To install blade into saw:
1. Loosen set screw.
2. Insert blade shank from the front between the reciprocating shaft and the blade clamp.
Locate hole in blade over pin on reciprocating shaft.
3. Tighten set screw. If the blade should break off and the shank does not come out of the clamp,
be sure the set screw is loose and eject the shank with a nail or pointed object.

I have a Dewalt DW310 and the small piece on the end of blade broke off inside. How can I remove? Thank you Bruce


Hi,

There is a small screw on the right side by the shoe assembly that should allow you to remove it so you can get to the piece broken off. There is also a C-clip that you might have to remove also.

I hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Handie Andie
