  • Dw 788 Table, Help

    My table on my dwalt well not stay in one place, if I push a little down on the table it well move at lest a 1/16 of an inch. I put a washer on it hoping I could tighten it more but did not help. Lance

    I think it is the nature of the beast. Learn to not lean on the table as you cut and check for squareness of the blade often.

      Make sure your table is on all the way. Try pushing it straight back on the pin in the back of the table if you tilt your table often they have a tendency to "walk" forward.

          Thanks, Mike and Tim. I took it apart and moved the washer to the front and the was able to get the saw table to lock in. Lance

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
