Step 1: Taking Apart
First of all remove the base plate of the jigsaw using your L key.
Then start removing your screws. Place them into a small bowl or cap to keep them from dissapearing.
Step 2: The Inside
This is the inside of a jigsaw. Start cleaning the dust and old grease out of the machine using the paper towels or cloth. You can use a brush for the wood dust. Be careful when removing any parts so that they do not get damaged or lost.
Step 3: Regreasing
After cleaning out all of the dust and old grease. Ensure that you re-lubricate all of the gears and gogs. If you do not have new grease you can reuse the old grease but it is not recommended as it can contain a lot of debris.
After re-greasing is done ensure that the cover is clipped back tightly and that all screws are screwed in properly. and just give Your machine a test run without cutting anything, to ensure that everything is working properly.
