    I moved your post to your own thread/conversation. Piggybacking on a thread from 2007 will just get overlooked more often than not. It is in your best interest to start a fresh conversation. We have plenty of paper and ink.....<grin>

                  Hi, Don & welcome to the forum. You don't have to be shy about any questions that you may have, so, just ask any time. I have a DeWalt 788 & love it, even though there are some members who have had problems with it. As you read some of the threads here, you will find some of the problems are quite lengthy in text. I have had good luck with mine & it is the Type II saw, which is made over the pond. That I don't like, but, that's the way it is in USA. Hope you learn a lot from us & don't be shy. Good Luck

                    One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                    That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                    I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                    Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
