Well the sawzaw will be drastically different from the jigsaw, but the jigsaw will have either a round twist lock that needs to be turned a little to remove the blade, or two screws that hold a flat plate that clamp the blade. and as for the sawzaw, it will be a twist lock, or a latch lock, the latch lock will look like a lever that needs lifted to remove the blade, and the twist lock is the same as the jigsaw.

How do you change the blade on a chicago jigsaw #35778


Like most reciprocating saw there would be a screw on the collar. The collar is the piece of metal on the end of the shaft that moves up and down simply loosen this set screw and pull the old blade out.

My 9 month old Bosch 1590 jigsaw will not start??


The problem is the switch, or trigger switch. It may just have saw dust in it or it may be shot. Try blowing the dust out of it with a good blast of compressed air. If you don't have a compressor to do this go to a tire shop. They will help u.

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!
