    The set screw Carole mentioned is opposite the blade tightening knob. She is correct the screws will make the blade be off center. I had only one problem with the DW. There is a fitting on the end oif the motor arm. Mine came loose and made a racket. I followed the video you mentioned and it was very...

    Start by retracting the set screw fully on both upper and lower clamps, then turn them each the same amount until they have protruded enough to grab the blade when you tighten the thumb screw. If for some reason the blade is still not completely perpendicular, adjust them until it is. Should not be...

    If my memory is correct you have a set screw on the left side of blade clamp and the thumb screw on the right side on both upper and lower blade clamps. If you do not adjust both set screws so they are the same (just proud of blade clamp slot), your blade will not be square.

    Thanks, all!

    It's good to have people that have been where I am now, and have experience with my saw. I found out there is a repair facility not far from my home, so, if something goes wrong, I'll let them worry about it. I took about 5 hours Saturday, moving the old saw out of the shop...

    If you don’t want to use a foot pedal, make a membrane switch from a thin rubber glove. Just tape it over the switch and it will keep the dust out.

    Lots of good advise. My first saw was and still is the DeWalt, which is now over 10 years old.. Not a bit of problems, except the switch as mentioned. I also have the EX21 which is my go to saw, but I still use the DeWalt.

    The DeWalt 788 seems to be a mixed bag, as far as durability goes. I had mine for many years and never took it apart to grease or replace the bearings & sleeves. Now admittedly, I am just a hobbiest and don't put the hours on a saw that a lot of other guys do. It seems that the ones with the most...

    I have been scrolling for nearly 14 years and have never disassembled my saw. I originally owned a Dewalt 788 Type 1. the only issue I had was with the On/Off Switch failed. This was no problem as I bypassed the switch and used a foot pedal on/off switch, which is a far more convenient way to scroll....
