I have a dewalt dw331 jig saw. it holds only t-shanked blades but they dont seem to lock into place. the arm never goes back to the full lock position. this is a brand new saw and i have tried several different blades to see if maybe it was just the blade wasnt lining up. still not locking in properly.

On the spring loaded one a metal pin will fit through a hole in the black to keep it in place. Ensure your blade is not broken and has a hole for the pin to go through.

SOURCE: Black and Decker JS305 blades come out. The only

I'm thinking the blades that go in Jig Saws are and have been standard since the late 80's. Once upon a time, blades were held on with a collar and a set screw while today they have a fat part that locks into the collet.

Can't find the proper blade at the Depot, my advice would be check with Black and Decker directly.

When I searched B&D, the first hits were Sears (Maybe at K-mart) and Lowes. Home Depot didn't come up at the top. You might find the blades you need at your local Ace or Sentry or Tru-Value or other brand hardware store. Be nice to support your local merchant, your neighbor.

Anyway, try here for your parts

I hope you find this information fruitful

Dewalt 331k jig saw blade falls out

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...

Blade stuck in dw331 blade clamp

I've been all over the internet with this because the blade clamp on my 331 is jammed as well. It turns out DeWalt has redesigned the blade clamp, I'm guessing they did this because the original design jams. Solution: call DeWalt. Tell them that you have the old and now obsolete blade clamp that is prone to jamming, and that yours is stuck making your saw worthless. Ask them to send you the new redesigned clamp that is supposed to work better. You swap out blade clamp by removing two hex head (allen) screws.

The new style blade clamp for the 331 is part number: N072135SV

*The obsolete part #: N072135, 586203-00 and 589148-00

Good luck getting DeWalt to send you the working part for free.

No cutting action

The DW331 sounds very smooth , but it was not so that Dewalt saw BUT the to thinny wormgear on the anchor and the drive gear that are in most cases the 2 parts to change sometimes also a bearing but i have the experience more then ones with this model type.
It has normally a very nice sound but because of the very fine drive toothing part 1 and part 55 but realize that this machine is not made for heavy work , and the parts are a little bit too expensive for the life under heavy load for this kind of powertool.
Its one of the tools that its not made for professional use only for little wood ,
There are better models of Dewalt

Sabre saw- craftsman - 17256 - change blades

This saw uses a tool-free blade change. 1. Unplug the jigsaw 2. Place your finger on the lower edge of the see through blade guard, and pull it forward until it locks up in place 3. Lift the tool-free blade change holder (bright yellow piece above the blade), and insert the blade into the slot of the tool-free blade change holder. 4. Release the tool-free blade change holder to lock the blade in place. 5. Pull down on the blade to verify that the blade is securely locked in place. The teeth of the blade should be pointing forward and down. 5. Put the blade guard back down.
You can use with both 'T' & 'U' shanked blades.
Feel free to ask me any other questions about this saw.

How do you change the blade in a DeWalt Jig Saw Model DW321

  1. Lift the black handle/knob approximately ¼”.
  2. Turn the handle/knob counterclockwise 5-7 full turns until blade chuck is completely open, keep the black knob pulled up as you turn it.
  3. Insert “T” shank or universal jigsaw blades into the chuck making certain that the back edge of the blade fits into the support roller. Please note that when using “T” shank blades, insert the blade to the shoulder of the shank.
  4. With the knob/handle still in the up position, turn the handle/knob clockwise until the knob starts to ratchet.
  5. Push the handle/knob down. The blade is completely installed at this point.

I have a milwaukee jig saw, 6268-21 that I cannot load blades.

Yes the Milwaukee 6268-21 does require the use of certain jigsaw blades. You have to use T-shank type blades. You push the tension lever hold it while putting the blade in as far as it will go, then you release the tension lever slowly and it will engage the blade. You should then check by pulling on the blade to make sure it is seated properly and will not come out.
