How do I remove the original packaging from the fatmax


I agree. The packaging is ridiculous.
I removed it by grasping the packaging and pulling (very hard) from the blade end (bottom left as looking at it) straight out. This stretched and tore the plastic "paper" and pull the knife free.

I have a stanley FatMax. How do I insert the blade into the case?


On the side there is a big gold wheel, twist counter clockwise and the case should split in half, the blade is held by a magnet, prise the old blade off and replace with new one, then put case back together and tighten gold wheel clockwise
Goodluck!

How do you put blades in stanley fat max extreme razor knife


Not sure exactly because I don't own one, but the review seems to indicate you push the blade positioner all the way forward, and push a release to remove the old one out the front, and then push a new own in until it clicks in place. With the blade positioner all the way forward.
But the review said it did not work well.

Describe how you put a blade in FatMax model 10-778


The model in your picture is a fixed blade utility knife (model 10-816). Your question asks for instructions for model 10-778, which is a retractable knife. I'll guide you through the 10-778 which you asked for, if you need instructions for the pictured 10-816 please re-post the question.

Push the thumb slide forward as far as it goes exposing the blade. Press the blade change button on the side of the knife (the small button on the left side near the blade) and pull out the old blade.
Insert the new blade and slide thumb slide back to fully engage blade in the internal lock.

Change blades I just need a picture /instruction for blade change


The gold looking circle on the side of the utility knife. Just unscrew that and it will pop open then you can change the blade. I looked everywhere and am unable to find the instruction or picture. I own one and that is why I am answering this for you. Please rate

I brought a stanley fatmax retractable knife, have no idea why the blade is not coming out, trying to figure out if i did something wrong like putting the blade in the wrong spot.. this is the only time...


Are you using Stanley Blades or off brand? Hey, I use off brand but sometimes it does make a difference. Second, make sure the blade slider is clean. If you were cutting shingles, for instance, the tar gets in there and screws things up.. try WD-40 spray it liberally all over the blade slide and buttons. If that doesn't work and you purchased it at a Menards store, I can speak of experience they'll replace it no hassle.
I hope I helped
