  • 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?

          Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

          Hi ibber - LOL!

          I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

          I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

          Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.
