The size and type will depend on your needs when cutting. Fortunately, this model can use both T- and U-shank blades.

My personal preference if for the T style as i find they hold better.

use this picture and info as a guide. When you go to hardware store look for a combo set for metal and wood.
metalworking will have fine teeth, woodworking will have larger teeth.

Missing skil jigsaw set screw

This will be a generic METRIC screw, take it to a fastener supplier and show them the hole, they can try out fit of a few METRIC screws to find the right size. Buy the screw/bolt that fits and hacksaw the head off it to make a set screw.

I do not know how to install blade and have no manual

Most of the skil jigsaws have a plastic piece with a spring and catch behind it. Just push your blade into the tool and it should lock. When you want to remove it you need to press the plastic lock collar up and it will release the blade. Some of the earlier models weren't as easy to set the blade in and you have to press the lock collar up insert the blade and let the collar down around the blade to lock it.
