  • R843 Jigsaw Blade falls off at speed

    I recently bought a used R843 18 volt jigsaw off ebay cause I have other Ridgid 18v tools and cordless is the way to go! It works fine except whenever I use it under load the blade always falls off. It does look like it was used hard and put away wet, would say the seller was a carpenter by trade. I downloaded the owners manuel and didn't see where it needs a special blade. Any ideas? The spring that holds the clamp worn out, something in the quick release clamp wornout, need a different blade?
    Thanx, Mike

    If it is like the 24v it uses a Bosch style T-blade.
