    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

                    I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                    I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                    Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                    One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                    I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                    Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                    If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
