  • Dewalt Knock

    I have tried the fix recommended by Dewalt to solve the knocking problem with my scrollsaw and it didn't work. Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this annoying noise?

      Stewart;
      How old is your saw and how many hours (approx) use per week.
      I had a DeWalt for over 3 years and I did the recommended knocking fixes a few times and finally it wouldn't fix it anymore. The saw was totally wore out and was shaking and sounding like a threshing machine so I upgraded to an industrial quality saw .
      Don't get me wrong, DeWalt is a pretty good hobby quality saw but I had thousands of hours on mine and it simply wore out . When I replaced it, I made sure to get one that had a combination of  sealed ball bearings and oil cup construction on all points of  potential wear.
      I am just curious to know if yours is a high use saw like mine was. ???

        I have less than 200 hours on the machine.

          Hhmmm.....
          That dosn't sound good. I know the knocking has been going on from the first DeWalts to the most recent ones in a large majority of them. I'm surprised DeWalt has not corrected that problem over the years.
          200 hours is almost a new saw regardless of the length of time you've owned it. I wish I could help but if the suggested 'fixes' don't help, I don't know what else to suggest except contact DeWalt and be very vocal about your dissatisfaction with the product. Who knows... they may send you a new one. It's happened before.
          The squeaky wheel is the one that gets the grease  :
          Good luck.

            I managed to fix mine about a year ago by grinding a little more clearance in the upper lid where the draw rod was hitting. This also allowed me to open the cutting clearance between the table and the upper clamp a little. Hasn't knocked since....

              That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              Reply to Question about tilting head saws
              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
