    • Regardless of how the halves are separated, to put them back together, it is practical to put the saw blade mechanism in the halve with the rest of the parts.

    • Then, make sure the right parts line up and are fitted correctly:

      • The holes for the blade holder. The axis is located on the other halve.

      • The blade driver.

      • The blade guide.

      • The metal strip.

    • Now, add the empty halve on top of the halve containing the parts.

    • Screw everything back together.
