No, the pin holds the blade in there as a keeper device, The screw just puts the clamp on it. It was probably just stuck, If the pin is gone, driven out or out of the way, try getting it back to hook the blade on. The clamp alone won't hold it. I tried.

How do I change the blade on model #17224 saber saw?


Are you talking about a reciprocating saw? What brand? If this is what you're referring to, then there is usually an Allen style set screw at the base of the blade. Loosen the set screw with an Allen wrench, and replace the blade. Retighten the set screw and cut away.

We have a ryobi rj150v model reciprocating saw (older model) which needs the blade replaced. It had a broken part, which I ordered several years ago. My husband's FINALLY going to replace the blade,...


There are 2 types of clamps that hold the blade in that type of saw.

Since this is an older one it most likely has the type where the blade is held in place with a set screw and a "U" shaped piece of metal that holds the blade tight against the shaft. There should be a screw hole in the shaft of the saw. The blade rest next to the shaft and then the metal piece clamps the blade against the shaft. This is all held in place by a set screw that screws into the shaft. This screw uses a hex key to remove and tighten it.

If your tool doesn't have this style then it should have a twisting clamp. This will rotate and release the blade. Sometimes a pliers is needed to loosen the collar, but not to tight tho.

How do you install the blade in the craftsman recipricating saw model 320


You need a allen wrench to remove the blade and to reinsall it look at the base of the blade and you will see an allen wrench. If there is no allen wrench then you must pull down on the clap assembly to release the blade. If you still can't figure it out here is sears web site where you can get help for it if you need a picuter.

I need instructions on removing the front housing so I can replace the Blade Set on my 8.5 amp Professional reciprocating saw Model 172.267700. I have the replacement part, I just don't want to take it...


Hi again Guy, It is easy to overlook the obvious, I do it a lot. There are two allen screws in the rubber boot at the front bottom that need to be removed to release the foot (or shoe), which should slide out the end. Then the whole boot ( forward hand grip) pulls off the end exposing the assembly you need to replace. Good Luck to you, this should Fixya!
