Reply: Dust Collector Kit For 1587AVS
When the manufacture discontinued supplying the 2610994544 dust collection kit for the 1587AVS, they did not supply a substitute. You can keep on searching for one on line, there may be some one that has one.
Question: Blade Locked In Place
I'm unable to lossen the blade too remove it. I have taken the top off and everything looks fine and rotates but won't lossen the blade. Any ideas?

That problem is generally caused by a broken 2606491014 Coupling Half.You will have to disassemble the tool to make sure but this is the problem in a good many of the cases.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Question: Compression Spring
Trying to figure out where Diagram #85, Part # 2604610040 goes. I opened up area and found the spring inside the large spring #66 tangled and broken. Its very soft like a ball point pen spring but longer. Does it go over the shaft?
Reply: Compression Spring
If I remember right when The coupling Half ( 2606491014) and the Clamp screw ( 2603490011) go together the compression spring sits over the top of them.So after your clamp screw goes in then drop the compression spring over that shaft then you will have to guide the coupling half through the spring.So when the two half of the coupling shaft and clamp screw are together they will be sitting in the center of the spring.What the compression spring does is to keep slight downward tension on the clamp screw.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Blade loose. What repair part do i need. The blade does not tighten.
Question: Could You Help Me Figure Out Wha...
I have a BOSCH 1587AVS. The plunger thingy that holds the blade, I think it is missing. It has the cylindrical tube that goes up and down, but that is it. I think it needs something to hold the blade in. Could you tell me what part I need?

Mine did same thing. The plunger broke. Number #44 on the parts list.

The Metal shaft is the blade insert shaft, this unit uses "T" shank blades only, slightly lifting the black cap atop of the saw and turning is counterclockwise loosens the locking part of the shaft, the shaft turns 90 degrees insert the T Blade, turn it back and position the blade on the roller, then turn the black cap clockwise until the ratchet will no longer tighten, then back it off and reseat the cap on the handle, and now your ready to go.

Did Bosch make a ripping guide or fence for this model? There does look like the clamps,screw holes and holes are in the base.

Yes, they're still made as of 5/2010
Question: Loose Blade
Trying to replace a blade, the blade will not fit tightly. I followed the instructions in the Owner's Manual, the knob on top "clicks" as it should, but the blade fits so loosely that it will not cut straight, and sometimes falls out. I could replace parts that require only screwdrivers and wrenches, but after partly disassembling the jigsaw, I cannot access the parts that clamp the blade assembly during use. Advice?
Reply: Loose Blade
Loosen the shaft by turning the black handle cap about 3 or more turns, turn the shaft 90 degrees, insert the T shank blade, turn it back the 90 degrees and rest in the roller assy, then tighted the cap until it no longer turns easy then back off and reseat the cap and you online to work with the blade locked.
Does anyone know where I can get the case only for a jigsaw, Bosch #1587-avs?

Question: Changing A Blade On A Bosch 1587...
I'm having trouble changing the blade on my Bosch 1587AVS jigsaw. What's happening is I have the new blade in, but it won't lock in place. I've turned the piece on the top of the handle, and it's supposed to "click", but it won't "click." I've turned the piece many times, and nothing happens. I've changed blades on this saw before with no problems. Any one have an idea/suggestion on how to remedy my problem?
