    Type 1 is the older version, I was led to believe it was produced in the USA, Type 2 I believe is produced in China.

      The type I was made in Canada. Production was moved to Taiwan about 12 to 15 years ago and tagged the type II.

        It is more then location. The quality of the components declined when the moved over to Taiwan. They improved after a bit, still not great, but then they moved to mainland China and quality went donw again.

          All the above not withstanding, I have had a Type II for three years with absolutely no problems.

            Unfortunitly ,all saws have their biggest shortcoming that is ( the nut in front of
            the blade ) even the best quality saw can not over come IT! Over the years I have been forced to recognize most of my saw problems (had operator assistance ,JMHO)

                I bought the 788 October last year. A week ago it started acting funny. The wood (blade) started shaking, like the blade had a lot of front/back movement. Then 3 days ago it started sounding like something was getting kicked around inside. I took it apart and everything looks good. Bearings look good, no needle bearings laying anywhere nothing. I can't figure what's going on. Last Saturday I bought a Delta 40-694 off Amazon. Maybe I can get the 788 in the shop.

                    Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                    Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                    Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                    HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
