Questions & Answers

has anyone else had issues with this saw and the blade sitting correctly? my blade will not sit ...

has anyone else had issues with this saw and the blade sitting correctly? my blade will not sit straight, it appears the whole mechanism is off by several degrees, therefore resulting in cuts always veering to the left. any thoughts on how to fix this? or is it possible that it is user error? i am not new to power tools by any means, but cannot get the blade in straight to save my life.
Asked by: Tracey
I tried this jigsaw twice from the Home Depot Store and they both had the misalignment you describe: the blade is angled off-center which would cause the jigsaw to always veer left. I think this error is about 2 degrees and the acceptable tolerance is supposed to be 0 - 1/2 degree. I would try to find a jigsaw with an acceptable tolerance, preferably 0 degrees, such as a Skil jigsaw. A Ryobi circular saw, on the other hand, has perfect alignment. I check and recheck and the Ryobi circular saw has perfect alignment, as if it were manufactured with laser instruments. So, for a rule of thumb: Jigsaw: Skil (or comparable brand) Circular Saw: Ryobi (or comparable brand)

How to change blades

Asked by: Eagle
Hi Eagle. Thanks for your interest in the RYOBI 4.8 Amp Corded Variable Speed Orbital Jig Saw JS481LG. To install blade: Unplug the saw. Rotate orbital adjustment knob to position 3. Rotate the rapid change blade clamp so that the slot in the blade clamp is aligned with the slot in the blade support roller. Holding the blade clamp in place, insert the saw blade as far as possible into the slot in the blade clamp body and blade support roller. Check to make sure the back of the saw blade is centered in the slot of the blade support roller and blade clamp. Release the blade clamp. Make sure the blade is securely in place. Check that the blade is inserted fully and completely secured. Blade will lock into position when correctly installed. Thanks for asking. - Eve
