    I'm trying to understand if I'm using this tool incorrectly or if it is defective. I get collisions when using the tool when backing out of a cut. It's a brand new tool--a gift from my wife. Here's a close-up of the split pin colliding with the blade release latch.

    My old Dewalt Radial Arm saw is screaming for new bearings. I can't seem to find the part number of the bearings that it needs. I have been told that Dewalt/Black and Decker purged all there old maintenance information on the vintage saws years ago, and so far I have not been able to identify...

    Hi All. This is my first post... I bought a new 735X and have been using it successfully for only a few days. Suddenly it won't feed the board. I took it apart and there are no clogs, broken chains or belts. When I pulled off the front cover I can see the problem is that the right shaft...

    Hi, i've got my hands on a Dewalt 733 type1 planer that is as good as new. This is possibly becoming my first planer. Any thoughts on this machine? Pros/cons. What should I look out for. I'm aware it's an older model, but hopefully for me it's plenty of runtime left. Feel free to mention other...

    Hi there, I have a DeWalt 735X planer, and the screw for the depth crank has fallen off and disappeared. The part # is 5140054-60. Is that a standard-size screw that I can buy at Home Depot? Does anyone happen to know the length and TPI? Thanks a bunch, John

    I'm still perfecting the designs... but my near dustless Miter Saw Enclosure design and methodology is second to none after just a one week project. The Methodology involves using SketchUp and a few techniques that any SketchUp novice can do after watching my YouTube videos. The Design has the...

    I'm just getting into woodworking and consider myself a novice. I would like to have the tools (not to mention the expertise) to create box, dado, and maybe a few other types of joints for boxes and drawers. To get my woodworking hobby of the ground, I bought a Dewalt 745 table saw. It's a great...

    I am in the market for an additional post type DeWalt 18v XRP battery. The generic off-brands are cheap (all over Ebay for about $26 inc. shipping) and most come with a 30-day money back, 1-year warranty. I should add I'm not usually one to skimp and never would on any sort of equipment with...

    I have a B&D Quantum 12V. 20 years plus. Rebuilt the battery packs twice. My only complaints are, it's 3/8" and it doesn't do high RPM, needed for small diameter bits. My Craftsman corded drill, 30 years plus, is starting to smell of burned insulation when I use it, and the bushings scream. No...

    I have a PC 743 that is on the way out. I am looking at worm drive saws. I have it narrowed down to the Makita and Dewalt. Does anyone have any real world experience with these? Thanks
