  • Visitor question

    I received a question from a visitor. Apparently, there isn’t a way to post pictures when replying. The question was if there is a way to mount a magnifier to the DeWALT 788 saw. My answer was that I use a lighted magnifier mounted the the stand. Here are some pictures. Hopefully, he will join the forum.

    Early on I had mounted my Mag Light to my Scroll Saw Base, similar to your set up. I found it did not work all that well with my scroll saw. I found the the vibration from the scroll saw would cause the Mag light to vibrate producing a fuzzy image. I have remounted my Mag light on a bracket mounted on the wall. This set up works much better.

      I have my mag light mounted on a bookcase next to the saw. I can see where mounting it to the saw could result in the light vibrating.

        I agree with Skeeter and Virgil. If there is any vibration at all the magnifier will magnify the vibration. I use a mag light on both my EX-21 and Hegner and they are mounted on the counter top near the saw. Another option would be to get a mag light on a floor stand.

          My Hawk has a Hole in the back of the frame where I put my magnifier, for the EX 16 I have the clamp that comes with it . Neither have any vibration. Hour meter.jpg

            I don't know about mounting the light, but your shop looks normal to me!

              Actually, I have no issue with the magnifier vibrating from the saw. It’s on a wooden cross member attached to the base. I used to do a lot of demos at the woodworking club and Woodcraft store, so I needed to have the magnifier mounted to the base. It does move around if I bump the saw or stand, but does not vibrate when the saw is running.

                  There is a difference between dirty and cluttered. Mine is on the cluttered side.

                    My light has been mounted to the Hegner stand since day 1, 18 years ago. No problem whatsoever with vibration. The Hegner stand is a 3 leg stand so maybe that has something to do with it. Don’t know how many legs the others have.
