How to Remove a Bosch Jigsaw Blade

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.
