  • Dewalt DW788 Table hole issue.

    Has anyone figured out how to fixe the hole problem with the dw788? It was cut off center to the blade. I used some sanding strips on it yesturday and the strips actually cut the hole wider and left a ridge. I'm tempted to take my dremel to it, but I wanted to see if there was a real solution first.

    It's not actually a big problem, just an annoying one.

        I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

        I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
        Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

        One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

        I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

        Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.
