  • Recommended Stand For DeWalt?

    I have a barely used DW788 coming and need to get a stand. Should I get a DeWalt stand, or is there a better option? I'll have to try it first, but I think that I like the idea of a tilted forward stand. What's the best way to do that?

    Id go with the Dewalt stand, especially if you dont have access to many other tools, like tablesaw, or mitersaw to aid in building your own stand. The Dewalt stand is a well built stand, designed for the saw so it fits perfectly, and has the necessary leg extension to raise the rear of the saw. I love mine, and yes, mine are tilted up in the real, it makes sitting at the saw more comfortable.

        Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

        Welcome! John! From Reno NV. A long time 788 user (I'm94) I'm sure you will get many happy hours from the repairs you placed on the machine.

        I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
