Dewalt 331k jig saw blade falls out


Dewalt Jig Saw

DeWalt Jig Saw MANUAL ManualsOnline com


Blade catch wears out too fast
I loved this tool when it was working but after not that much use the teeth that hold the blade under pressure no longer hold hard enough to prevent the blade from coming out. The mechanism that holds the blade has no catch hole, it uses a few serated teeth to pressure hold the blade in place. Unfortunately, once the pressure starts to lessen you can't tighten it down...

Are the 7 degree dovetail bits, that come with the jig, the only size that can be used or can a 9 degree bit be used?


Hi, W/D at your service.
Apparently, there are several types of bits compatible with your model.
Here's a link that gives you a better idea:

Where can I purchase an owner's manual for a Craftsman dovetail jig Model # 315-25710 A2044? Virgil


You might check this out, I found it in another forum. It looks like Ryobi made this dovetail jig for Sears.
1-800-525-2579 is their customer service line. I would ask for Ryobi Tech Services.

Omnijib 24" - Dovetails too tight on half blind dovetails


I haven't used one for years, but I seem to remember we used to have to dial in the thickness of the planed material just right to get the joints to fit correctly. Doesn't make a lot of sense, particularly if you're using composite boards. And make sure everything is clamped in the jig nice and square, and flush where it's supposed to be.
Also make sure you are running the guide collar right up against the fingers when you cut, maybe take a second pass through. Make sure the bit you're using hasn't been resharpened....Take pains to be sure the bit is centered in the collar.
If you've done all that, I'm afraid you just have to play with it until you get it to work...use some test pieces and you'll see that the depth setting does affect the fit, but they're not as versatile as an infinitely adjustable jig like a leigh. I'm afraid I'd have to put my hands on it to remember and see what wasn't working...
I hope that may help in some way or another...

Dovetail leave a 'light gap'


This may not be related to your jig. It may be movement in the vertical axis resulting from:

  1. The router bearings being worn allowing the bit to move up and down.
  2. The router bearings worn allowing the spindle to deflect side to side which changes the bit height slightly (cuts on the edges, making the cut a hair deeper).
  3. The router collet or router spindle worn, allowing the bit to move during cuts.
  4. The jig guide plate deflecting or no longer flat.
  5. Excess vibration in the router causing the wood to move in the jig.

To check the bearings; try routing the cut with a straight bit first to clear the wood for the dovetail bit. Then cut with the dovetail bit (a new one preferably) using very light feed pressure. Is the joint tighter? If so then the bearings are worn. Have the router serviced or replace it.

Check the end-play by pulling on the router shaft, does it wiggle slightly in and out? If so this is your problem. Have the router serviced or replace it.

Be sure the wood is flat and the faces planed parallel, if they aren't the dovetail line will be straight but when you assemble there will be slight end gaps in sections of the dovetail.
