What is the security lock on a Dewalt 24v reciprocating saw? Does it affect the use of it? I want to purchase one but the security lock doesn't work. Thanks for your help.

    Are you looking at a used saw? (If so, don't purchase it if the security lock is malfunctioning. It is an important safety factor in the usage of the saw.)

The trigger lock on a recip saw is a safety device that is there so the trigger switch will not work unless the lock is pressed first. If the lock doesn't work the saw will still work properly, it just isn't as safe. Anything that touches the trigger switch, from accidental contact by yourself or things you're working on to little children, can make the saw start up.

I have a dewalt model dw008 reciprocating saw.while removing a broken blade a small steel ball fell out. #52 in their parts manual.where does it go?


Here is a parts diagram. Item 52 is the ball. It fits behind item 49. Item 49 has a groove machined into it so that when it is moved it allows the ball to move away from the blade far enough to insert the blade. Once the lever is released the ball moves back and locks the blade into place.
