You do not have to remove any screws. Extend the blade outward using the thumb slide on top of the knife. There is a small black pushbutton on the opposite side from the lock button. Depress the button on the side and using the other hand, grab the blade with your thumb and forefinger to pull the blade out. It may require a little wiggling. Now the new blade can be slide in and locked into place. The black pushbutton controls the locking mechanism that keeps the blade from pulling out.

there is a little black button on the end where the blade comes out. With the blade in the out position,push in the button and pull out the blade. With button pushed insert new blade or turn the old one around to use the other end.let go of the button and you are ready to go.

See here the Stanley knife disassembly. If you have a 99E there may be an additional plastic part that is not shown in the diagram. The plastic tab is located at the back of the blade.

This knife is ****. To load... you have to push the slide all the way forward. Make sure the switch is set to unlock. PINCH THE BLADE WITH YOUR FINGERS AND WIGGLE IT INTO PLACE. Then you have to use every ounce of thumb power to relock the switch.

Once you are done, the blade will still come out in 9.9 / 10 times you cut something.

the blade section pivots to swivel when doing that it allows you access to the blade storage area that holds up to 7 blades, if the extra blades arent in place perfectly the handle won't close properly, if your problem is with the blades themselves, make sure that the slot in the blade is aligned with the holder perfectly

At the back end of the knive (the curved end) press the black piece through the yellow rounded part and the yellow front and the black back will part, now slide the yellow part back to reviel the blade folder. Fit new blade then refit the yellow part on top of the black part and slide the yellow part foward to lock it back in.

I was able to find the answer on another site. It is really simple when someone tells it to you. You push the blade all the way out then you can push the yellow button and it comes out.

Slide the blade holder all the way out, press on the tab as shown in picture. Pull on blade with other hand. Blade slides right out.

You should wear gloves to protect your hands from slips and goggles or face mask to protect your eyes and face from any metal pieces that may come off the bolt you are cutting.

Request the manual from the manufacturer/distributor.

With the cheapest multimeters costing as little as just a few dollars there is no reason not to have the ability to check things instead of guessing. With most portable tools and appliances the first thing to check is the power cord because around 60% of the time an internal break is the cause of a tool not starting. Power tools and appliances often have electronics to provide variable speed or soft start. Checking these is beyond the scope of the home repairer but a multimeter can check continuity to any electronic component and from it to the motor and the ensure there is continuity through the motor. If everything else is ok the fault is probably with the electronics if there is any. If you are feeling really brave, the final test is to temporarily and safely bypass the suspected component and apply power.

you can use a portable bandsaw to cut rebar, I find it to be the best solution when I can't take the rebar somewhere to cut it. But be careful if the metal is heavy it could fall and dent/damage the floor if you're working indoors of cause injury should it land on you.

Use a third blade, preferable mounted to your utility handle, to part them. Handle only from the back side and give the utility knife a slight twist as soon as it is between the points of the new blades.

Manual bolt cutters usually have symmetrical V-edge cutting blades. knife-edge-styles3-uipjjaq4o2dp2d2150uxp5lp-5-5.png With the sharpening angle in the range of 20-30 degrees. 28bc-7-4-_tbi-_head_on_centre_cut_replacement_jaws-uipjjaq4o2dp2d2150uxp5lp-5-9.jpg For comparison, the sharpening angle of the kitchen knife is less than 10 degrees. With such a pretty blunt edge is impossible to cut your finger. But this is the best option for cutting thick metal rods or cables.
