  • Fixing a Sawzall Blade collar

    I picked up a nice Sawzall cheap today. The problem is that the collar mechanism is frozen up. I can't seem to find a repair manual. The collar seems to be stuck in the open position. The collar won't twist in either direction. Is there and easy fix or some kind of repair kit?

    TIA

    If there's a snap ring on the front end, just take it apart to clean and lightly oil before re-assembly. If parts are broken or worn, it will never work right again, but at least you'd know.

    If you don't see a means of getting it apart, then just load some penetrating fluid into it and leave it for a day. Work it a few times to help distribute the fluid. Blow it out and hope for the best.

      When you say "Sawzall", I assume you mean Milwaukee brand.

      Take it to an authorized repair dealer and see it they have a replacement kit. If they do, and the cost is acceptable to you, get it and they'll probably give you some tips on how to install it.

        Well, I pulled the ring off and got off the front cam. The pin has rusted in the hole, so it is now sitting in Kroil. Hopefully 24 hours in Kroil will free the pin.

        It is a Milwaukee Sawzall, so once I get the rest of the old collar off, I'll go for the replacement collar.

        Thanks for the responses.

          Will you even need replacement parts?

            Kroil is wonderful stuff ! Best penetrating oil I have ever used. The real shame is, I didn't discover it much younger in life. Bob.

              Success, the Kroil did its stuff. The old rusted chuck parts are off. I just ordered the replacement collar.
