  • Got me a new/used saw

    Well after all of the great disscussion we had on here about what saws you thought were good and the ones you actually use I went with the Dewalt 788. I got the saw used because i found a great deal. The saw is 3 yrs old and was hardly used. It is a type 1. Looks like a great machine. I should have it next week sometime. I found this one for 200 bucks with 44 buck shipping. Can't beat a gently used dewalt for 244. Thanks to all for al of your comments and info on all of the saws.

    Should i change the brushes on the machine when i get it before i get into it hard and heavy.

    Congratulations on a great buy! I hope you enjoy your 'baby Excalibur'.

    I wouldn't mess with the brushes on such a new machine, myself, except if I had a problem with lack of torque.

      Congratulations on a great price and saw!
      I agree I wouldn't mess with anything unless it calls for it.
      Now go make some sawdust!

            Good find. That's about what I paid for mine off Ebay, a few months ago. It is also a type 1. The only thing I have done with it is wax the table. It's worked great ever since I got it. Now put it to good use.

                  Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

                  It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.

                  Hi Jo - that is an absolutely stunning piece of work and a labor of love to draw the pattern and then transform it into a dimensional wood project and give so much life to the character. Your choice of wood color and grain combination is also spot on. Wow!

                  I'm going to share this image...
