Revision as of 15:31, 21 June 2016

the De Walt has put up with a lot of (ab)use over the years, and it's a valuable tool, and at present, we don't have any safe and operational table saws in there (Andy says the Charnwood is awaiting AC node)

I had another look at the De Walt last night, to see if I could get it working.

The electrical switch enclosure with the safety fuses was completely caked in sawdust, this was easily removed. I confirmed that 240V was indeed getting to the motor terminals. The motor is dead, and is not available as a spare part. The saw is missing a riving knife (I've never seen it in the wood shop), the user manual insists that this is important safety equipment. The riser for the blade is not moving smoothly.

I agree. Time for a replacement, like-for-like, new-for-old, so I propose a new pledge. I have projects to work on that need a working table saw, so let's see if we can get it sooner, rather than later.

A replacement, with all usual parts, can be had, delivered for £399.

Running total: £400


Since this pledge has reached its target, I've ordered a table saw, we can arrange settling up, presumably via Russ. --Simon Hewison (talk) 16:31, 21 June 2016 (BST)
