  • Good-bye ol' Dremel, Hello DeWalt

    Well I cant say I am heart broken over my Dremel locking up, Lowe's refunded my money in full, which I turned around an applied towards a DeWalt 788.

    Now I just have to wait for it to arrive since I had to special order it, and hope I dont have any problems with the blade/pin clamps. My hopes are high since my friend Michael got his and it was fine. I'll check for that first thing when I break it out of the box, and if no problems I'll be back to making saw dust.

    In the mean time....I am suffering withdrawls


    DeWalt 788

    aut viam inveniam aut faciam

    God gives us only what we can handle.. Apparently God thinks I am one tough cookie.....

    Congradulations on your new saw.I am sorry about your Dremel. I know what you mean about waiting for your new saw, I am waiting on a Delta P-20 it is suppose to arrive @ Monday. I wish you many good years of use and keep the saw dust flying.

        A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
