You have a set screw on the side of the blade holder, usually an allen head, some jig saws have a clamp through the top, a screwdriver down through the top will grab it. Check it out.

Does someone know which # blade to use with the Oster, universal comb set for use with the Oster A5 turbo clipper?


Hi, as far as I know you're suppose to use a size 10 or 30 blade with any combs. I prefer to buy a longer blade like a size 4 rather than using the combs as I find the coat finish not great with the combs.

How to change blade arm and plastic blade guard


Don't forget that the bolt that holds the blade against the arbor (the motor hub connection point) is threaded COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. This is the opposite of nearly everything else we encounter. Be sure to use the two wrenches you got with the saw, and like the directions always say, "Unplug unit before servicing!"

How do I change the blade on a skilsaw 5250 2 1/4 hp 7 1/4 in. circular saw... there is no "locking mechanism" on this model? is this a "left-handed" bolt, Do I turn it...


Here is what you do, this is common on some skill saws, you of course make sure is unplugged, get your self a stick ( like a small broom handle type, or a piece of 1 by 2 chuck or wood, or anything of about that size. Put saw on its side, with the blade side toward you to get access to the nut to take off blade. As you know the blades go down( clockwise when operating to cut wood) and of course now, you have the problem of taking off the blade counter clockwise because the angle of the blades are going back words, ( nothing to grab on to the wood, to put a wrench on going counter clock wise to take nut off. What the idea for you and normal way is this, as the saw is on the side, with the nut/blade side toward you, you wedge the piece of wood, between the left top side of blade under the frame of the blade, meaning you are wedging it in, so the blade when turning the nut counter clockwise to unscrew, will stay in place. Think of it as wedging the blade with a chunk of wood, so it will not move. AGAIN, it comes off (nut) counter clockwise, so, you are just using this wood chunk to keep blade from moving, and then to put new blade on, just reverse procedure. Thanks Mike

Two springs broke underneath the riding lawn mower 3800 and we don't know where to replace them at, they engage the gears.


First make sure you can still engage the blades.Many mowers use a cable attached to a spring to engage the blades.If that is one of the springs,you need a new cable.For the other I will need more information,like what kind of mower is it?How many blades?Another thing to look for is worn or torn holes that the springs attach to.

My Hitachi cj 110 jig saw blade keep falling out I have tried different types of blade What?s the deal with that? I don?t know why someone would put a quick release holder on a blade shaft of a power tool...


WOW everyone really cant figure out the problem??? Take your jigsaw blade and hit it with some coarse sandpaper or a dremel and knock the finish off the edges and sides depending on maker and it willl work just fine. The blade companys put a super slick finish on the blades. not the saws fgault.

Blade won't stay engauged


It is very hard to say without knowing model, but if it is a Honda Harmony than I would look towards the the cable that controls the blade engagement. If your model is equipped with a blade engagement lever most likely yours is controlled by a cable also and it only needs to be adjusted correctly. Good luck!
