  • DeWalt 788 Lower Blade Chuck and Knob

    Okay. The lower knob will no longer tighten on the blade through the lower blade chuck. Seems stripped.
    Anyone ever experience this problem?
    If so, what is my next step to have it replaced or fixed?
    I took it apart and looked at it and found the picture of my saw at the DeWalt site.
    I only have the saw since Feb.2006 and is under factory warranty yet.
    Thanks for any background and direction.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

      Definitely call them. Other than that, check to make sure there is nothing on the end of the screw that actually tightens against the blade, causing slippage. But call them, most likely they will send you a new piece. Or, they will tell you to take it to the nearest DeWalt/Black and Decker service center. I had trouble with vibration when I first got my saw, and they replaced it.

        I am not familiar with the Dewalt, but I had some problems with my RBI clamps and drilled out the threaded holes and installed heli coils.
        No more problems.! My clamp bodies are pot metal or aluminum not sure.

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

          Now,...

          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...
