  • Old for new DW788

    My DW788 quit running about 2 months ago. Thought I'd be happy if I replaced it with a used Hegner Multimax 18V. Invested $400 in the used Hegner, over $300 more in upgrades and new parts, and still had a poorly performing saw. Decided to take the DW788 to the Dewalt Service Center in Charlotte, NC. Picked up my saw today, an old type 1 which I bought used, and sawed with it for four years. What Dewalt did was to jack up the table and drive a brand new DW788 type 1 saw under it! Total cost $210.99!!! It also has a 1 year warrantee. The advertised price for the total reconditioning is $259.99 on the Dewalt website. Needless to say, I am extremely happy and very pleased with my reconditioned saw. It ran as expected, without even a knock. Spent the last few hours happily sawing. KUDOS to the Dewalt Service Team--I am very greatful! And, no, I don't know how they happen to have a new DW788, but they assured me it was a TYPE 1.

      Four partially drilled holes in a block of maybe oak?
      Got to remember, I am pretty simplistic.

      Thanks for the advice Linda, I may have to do that. The future bride and groom are avid golfers so I would like to do something special for them. Also I am Godfather to the bride and I'm very humbled that she asked me to do this for her.

      Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

      Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...
