Looking for advice for anyone who has worked with a Dewalt DW708.
I picked one up really cheap from a friend of mine. The only known problem
was that it had been dropped on the bevel adjustment dial on the rear and
the shaft appears bent. Basically, when you loosen the bevel, the entire
colar separates slightly from the mating table section (I tried this with
the demo model at the Borg and it definitely does not behave the same). I
tried removing the entire upper part of the saw by loosening the bevel crank
and pulling the arm and all off but it would not budge. Checked the exploded
view and could not find anything that would seem to be locking the top half
onto the shaft.
Does anyone have any advice from similar first-hand experience? Yes, I
realize that I can take it to an authorized Dewalt service center but I
checked the estimated cost and suddently my bargain looked like a bargain no
Thanks for any help/advice,
