  • Ridgid 18volt Sawza Problem...

    Purchased the whole 18 volt set a little over a year ago and just started using the Sawza recently. I am having trouble with the lever that release's the blade and locks it in. It oftenb will not lock the blade in. Anyone else have this problem....

    Not sure if this is your problem or not but sometimes new blade locking mechanisms can be a little stiff at first. I had the same type of problem with my Freud jigsaw when I first got it. Initially, I needed to give the blade a little extra push in order for the locking mechanism to work properly. Eventually after using the saw for awhile the mechanism loosened up some and I no longer have any problems with the blade not locking in properly.
    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
