It comes with a 3/16 x 6 inch screwdriver (at least that's what the
one that came with mine measures)--if you've lost that you'll need to
find one like it. There's a hole on the top of the handle in
front--put the screwdriver in that hole and unscrew the screw until
the blade comes loose enough to twist 90 degrees and come out, then
when you put the new blade in you reverse the process and tighten the
screw.

that must be an old one. Mine you push a button and the blade drops out.

1581 is still listed in the current catalog. If yours uses a button
then I'd bet that it's a 1584 or 1587.

Incidentally there's an IPB at
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/bos...1098_3098.html
and the last item on the list is the special screwdriver, which you
can order for $4.50 and shipping, but it's a special order item which
they say takes 2 weeks.

Wow, another ancient thread resurrected.

Yes, it's a flat-blade screwdriver, of the kind that is the same diameter
all the way down, not the kind where the tip flares out a little bit and
then tapers.

I agree. I inherited this old Bosch jigsaw. the blade changing protocol is the most user-unfriendly design ever

It must be hard. You're still trying after 3-1/2 years.

Until manufacturers followed the method that Milwaukee came out with in
1999 ish, tool free blade changes were too much trouble.

IIRC Bosch and DeWalt both had tool less blade change saws but it was
like trying to crack open a safe to switch blades and the DeWalt's would
simply let go of the blade during a sawing operation.

For my 22 year old Milwaukee you push the lever over and the blade falls
out. Insert a new blade and release the lever.
