  • Dewallt vs craftsman

    I just started scrolling and have a (at least) 30 yr. old sgl.speed craftsman that surprisingly has little vibration. I am getting a Dewalt 788 Will I notice a large improvement in ease of use, easier cutting curves stc.

      I would think so. I have a Delta 40-690 which is a DW788 clone, and Craftsman cannot compare. Let us know what you think after trying it. Paul

        blde problem11

        I bought a almost new Dewalt 788 #1 last night about 11Pm, and thought I would see how easy blade changing was. I put in a couple and no real problems. Then I removed the blade and lossened the bottom Knob Assy Clamp (#47 on parts list )all the way until it stopped just so I could see the slot the blade goes in clearly. Then I tried putting in a blade and could not budge old #47. Im talking either way. It is like it's welded in place, Can you offer any sugestions, or guide me to a forum hat could?

          Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.

          Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75. I have a sister in assisted living with hospice people and care givers that come and go everyday...they still haven't received the...
