Jigsaw blades become dull with use and sometimes break. When this happens, you need to remove the blade to sharpen or replace it. Newer Bosch jigsaws have a quick release that separates the blade from the jigsaw. Older models require a little more manual effort to remove the blade. If you need to replace the blade, take it to a home improvement store and look for a blade that inserts in the saw with the same connection as the old blade.

  1. 1

    Unplug the Bosch jigsaw power cord from the electrical socket.

  2. 2

    Push the blade change button down with your thumb and turn the forward handle counterclockwise three complete times. The blade change button is on top of the forward handle.

  3. 3

    Grasp the blade by its sides with your fingers and push the blade up to release the tabs on the blade from the plunger.

  4. 4

    Pull the blade free from the jigsaw.

  5. 5

    Press the blade ejector lever on the front of the jigsaw to the middle position if your jigsaw has the quick-release mechanism. The blade will fall out of the jigsaw when you engage the ejector lever.
