Blade Saws - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

*before attempting to remove the blade, be sure the power source is either unplugged (if corded) or removed (if battery). If this is a latch style reciprocating saw, after disengaging the latch, give the end of the blade a few sharp taps with a mallet or hammer. then attempt to remove the blade by gloved hand, or adjustable pliers. if the blade is at all damaged during this process, throw it away and use a new blade next time. The blade housing may need to be blown out with some compressed air and the latch mechanism may need some lubricant. Hope this help!

I am not familiar with the model so I don't know how the top comes off but usually they aren't held down by much.

Usually it only needs the plastic or aluminium insert to be removed to access the riving knife or to remove the blade.

A maladjusted riving knife is a common cause of a "catching" blade.

It is worth considering, when such saws arrive they usually need calibrating, which often means semi-dismantling the saw and rebuilding it with a higher degree of precision than the factory can muster - using a large trusted set square, an accurate blade height gauge, etc.
It is also worth considering many modern table saws also have an electric brake that is supposed to stop the blade in a couple of seconds when the power is switched off.

Is the blade not true (flat)

Blade Saws | Answered on Oct 29, 2018

The manual indicates that there is a hole at the top of the handle and a screwdriver included with the jig saw. Insert the screwdriver in the hole and loosen the the set screw about 3 or 4 revolutions.

If I remember correctly, there is an adjusting collar on the side of the blade. I think it also had a set screw that you had to use an allen wrench to loosen. (Dad didn't allow me to mess with his saw.)

Blade Saws | Answered on Oct 07, 2018

Perhaps the shaft between the motor and the blade is ground off to accept a very thin wrench or there might be a small hole from the bottom of the saw that will accept a thin rod to lock the armature from turning .BTW Most saws have a counter rotating screw that locks the blade (ie Tighten to loosen) Good luck. BTW you should mention what make and model saw it is since different manufactures have different methods of securing the armature.
