After six years of use and abuse, our Worx Revovler recip saw has managed to grow a rather unheathly attachment to its blade. We were cutting railroad ties in half at a friend’s place when we noticed it just wasn’t getting through them any more and it was time to change the blade. The normal process of pushing the button and releasing the blade didn’t work, either: it was stuck.
After pushing, pulling, prying, shaking, and cursing, we still couldn’t get it to budge. We’re not sure how it’s stuck in there, but damned if we can mechanically move it. Our next steps are going to be drastic — heat and most likely disassembly.
We love the saw, but right now this issue has rendered it a fantastic paperweight. The instructions have no section for troubleshooting or what you’re supposed to do about a jammed-up blade, which I personally find very annoying. I’m not afraid of taking things into my own hands, but a set of guidelines would be nice. Have you run into this issue with a recip? Let us know what you had to go through to repair the rig.
