Topic tags/keywords: jig saw blades

I have a Rockwell Sabre Saw model 348 that is probably 40 years old and I can not find blades that will work. The chuck is a flat, 2 piece metal bracket with an allen screw through the middle. It will not work with either the new “T” shank blades or the older “U” shape. It seems that I remember it had a shank in the shape of something like an “F”. I have looked at all the website that sell blades and even looked on ebay but nothing like that comes up.

Does anyone have one of these saws and can tell me about the blade and suggest where I might find some. The tool was made in America and is all aluminum. It is a stout machine and I don’t want to throw it away because I can’t find blades. I was hoping to build a table like a router table for it to mount upside down with the blade sticking upwards kind of like a scroll saw. There are some things that I can’t cut out with a band saw and this would seem useful.

So does anyone have any idea about these blades? Thanks

These might work, available from or perhaps your local hardware dealer can order them direct from the manufacturer:

I have occasionally seen these in stores, but they are not very common. Hope this helps. Good luck.
