    The Dewalt has a coating on it, but even so, smooth it with sandpaper. If the scratch is catching on the wood especially. If it went through the coating the metal under it can start to rust.

    I actually removed the entire coating from my saw and waxed the table.

      I have a 788 and I sanded the table clean to a 400. I polish with paste wax once or twice a year. If you do this too be sure to use silicone free wax.

          BTW, I think a new stand costs around $57 USD on Amazon, but not sure what the cost would be for shipping in the UK.

            I used steel wool to smooth rough spots. Minor scratches will not harm a thing. I started with 0 then went to 00 and finally 0000. A couple times a year I apply paste wax using 0000 steel wool. Make sure to buff VERY well as you do not want to leave any residue.

                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
