We realize Woodworking enthusiasts don’t do much demolition, but we do use tools outside the woodshop sometimes! We were using Skil’s 18V Reciprocating saw and the one problem we encountered was keeping the blade locked into place. Now this didn’t happen every time, but it did happen enough times where it was very annoying. The Skil saw uses a toolless chuck to lock the blade in place, as do most of the saws these days. If we were cutting a simple piece of wood, the blade stayed in place with no problems. Anytime we did a little harder job or turned the saw to get the blade to bind, the blade would come out.

Has anyone else that has come across this saw had this problem? Would love feedback!
