How to Change the Blade on a Black & Decker FireStorm Reciprocating Saw

Save

Reciprocating saws have replaced a standard carpenter's saw for many home and professional construction projects. With the right blade they easily cut through wood, metal and concrete. All reciprocating saw blades are designed around a common style, allowing them to fit into any manufacturer's saw. The Black & Decker FireStorm Reciprocating Saw has an easy method of replacing the blade without the need for tools.

  • Grasp the side-mounted lever and pull up.

  • Pull the current blade from the saw.

  • Insert the new blade into the slot. Wiggle it from side to side and back and forth to ensure it is properly set into the space.

  • Lower the side lever.

  • Pull vigorously on the blade to check the proper seating. It should be held in the saw with a firm grip.

Tips & Warnings

  • Aways wear safety gloves when handling saw blades.
