Question about Cross Dewalt& 12" Double-Bevel Compound Miter Saw

1 Answer

Cannot rotate the Dewalt 708 mod 3 saw horizontally

I have a Dewalt 708 Mod 3 saw, 5 years old moderate to light use. When I try to rotate the saw to cut a simple angle the trigger depressed on the turntable but the turntable will not turn and the trigger does not return to locked position. As a novice repair person, I would suspect the trigger assembly that unlocks the turnable has failed but I don't know what the assembly is to check.

If you have loosened the handle a little and pulling the adjustment trigger didn't allow for movement,you may need to remove and clean the turn table.(don't forget,the handle must be loosened for the turn table to rotate)

I did a 45 degree bevel cut with my Dewalt portable table saw and now I can not get the blade back to a 90 degree position, any thoughts?


Did you check to see if the saw has a locking nut on the front of the bevel gauge handle? Its possible you just locked it into position and forgot to unlock.

Hi my dewalt 708 lx sliding mitre saw, 110v, seems to only have half the power(speed) that it should have, and cannot cut timber on a compound cut because of this, any suggestions please.


I have heard complaints that this saw does not do well on angled cuts because of its low power. Try running a shorter and/or thicker extension cord and checking your input voltage. That's about all I can think of, hope it helps.

Reciprocating saw stops reciprocating


your missing a tooth on a large round gear in the gearbox.

when the gear on the engine rotates into the position where the little engine gear spins because there is no tooth to come into contact with the engine runs but the gearbox doesnt spin, hence no reciprocation, but engine runs.

if you bump the blade it will start going again, but when you cut it will stop offasionally in mid cut. you can repair this but stop using it the engine gear will be destroyed otherwise

I have a dewalt dw303 that you can use for parts, I need a new trigger or something the motor is dead and I found a new saw. go to craigslist.org, rochester ny tools section and look for dewalt dw303 that is my listing. for ten bucks ill sell you all the gears you need. i think it is close to the same model, i am sure it is the same gearbox.

try opening your gearbox, im positive that is what is wrong.
