Question and Answers


Looking for owner's manual.

A: is a great place to find your owner's manual for various products. I am sorry that you are having some difficulties finding yours. Manufacturers stop producing manuals after ten years. This could be the cause of availability. Sometimes the expert can find one that is very similar to yours. You should hear back within two business days. If you are having a specific problem please submit your question on the existing tread by click on the reply box below for your expert.

I know that it is very important to have the right instructions for replacing the saw blade. I was not able to find a copy of the owner's manual, because it is no longer available. However, I was able to find a set of instructions for replace and securing the blade. I hope these will help

  1. Turn off and unplug the saw from the power source.
  2. Remove the Allen wrench from the saw's holder. It is located on the underside of the handle by the cord.
  3. Insert the Allen wrench into the hole on the side of the saw body toward the front, where you can first see the blade sticking out. Once inserted, there will be a blade clamp screw located on the blade clamp--insert the Allen wrench into the screw. If you can't see the screw, or are continually missing it, look into the front of the saw, down the length of the blade, and you will be able to see the clamp and screw through the front opening.
  4. Loosen the blade clamp screw with the Allen wrench. Make sure you don't fully remove the screw--it can be difficult to put back in. Only unscrew it about five to eight complete turns, or about halfway up the screw. This will loosen the clamp, but not disassemble it.
  5. Slide the blade out from the clamp. The blade, if installed correctly, will have a hole in it that rests around a notch in the blade clamp. This is just for security. Wiggle the blade a little if the notch is catching and pull gently. The blade will slide right out.

If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you Anne J, taking the blade out is not the problem. When I got the recip saw, there was no blade in it and what I really need is the correct procedure for inserting and securing the blade. Sorry for being so redundant.

I have exactly the same problem, when I bought the saw at an auction there was no manual and there was no blade in the saw. I looked at the area where the blade goes but I can't figure out how it goes in and fastens.
