I am having trouble seperating the cabinet on the DW911. I removed all the obvious screws, however, the seams appear to be welded or glued shut. Is this the case, and if so, does anyone have any advise as to how to seperate the 2 halves of the case?

These tools have panetry gearboxs to give maximum torque foe lightweight gearing. A common problem with the older DeWalt drills was the gear selector legs coming adrift. This is (potentially) an easy fix. First of all, the obvious stuff. Remove the battery and press the trigger to release any static/stored power. Undo all the screws and seperate the two halves. Try to keep all the internals in the back half like this... http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/DW958mainimage1.gif
Now check the metal legs coming down from the gear selector slide. They should be sitting through the sides of the gearbox, and located into the sides of a ring gear. They used to pop out of this gear which would stop it being pushed fully into position.
Ihate those filters with the rubber hoses that seam like you dont need a clamp, the best thing to do if you dont have a hose seperator is twist the hose use pliers if you have to just dont damage the hose, you can also try very carefully sticking a a small flat head screw driver in the end of the hose to try and losen it up just dont poke a hole in it. Is there not a bolt to losen the hosing should be. Best of luck to you.
I had the same problem with the case not coming apart after I took the screws off, but thanks to someone posting a suggestion on this website, I was able to take it apart and take care of the problem. Use a soft mallet and use it around the seam of the radio until it pops loose.
By the way, my original problem with the radio was that it would not get any power at all, whether using the power cord, or an 18v battery. I was able to fix the problem by replacing the fuse located inside the case (250v / 1AMP)......works great now!! Many thanks to all of you who posted suggestions on this great website!!
There was a fuse inside - Replaceable - fixed the problem.
There were no hidden screws, none under stickers or in the battery box like suggested by others, and the 2 magic release screws not so. There are several deep screws requiring a long philips, but the entire seam is glued (why?) so to open the radio I had to hit the body near the seam with a rubber hammer to crack the seam loose once all the screws were removed, comes right apart. Put it back together without glue, just the screws, it will be fine.
