Question about Dewalt DW744S 10" Portable Table Saw with Stand

1 Answer

I need a table saw, fitted into a lorry of say 22-23 foot body. The saw will have to be able to cut out sections of board for the original plugs on the wall etc. That would mean it would have to cut vertically and horizontally. The boards would be 3000mm by 1200mm. Dust extraction would be needed. The back ground of the work is retrofitting insulation into old houses. The lorry with the saw would be the mobile workshop.

You can forget about the table saw, If you are cutting through the back of the material to avoid the tear out of the work, the table saw is not what you want. I would do the receptacles with a jig saw or router. The table saw could still be used for cutting windows out and panels. 3000 x 1200 is what, 4 x10 feet? Plywood? Drywall? You know what we do? Instead of making a panel fit the old box, we get new work boxes, the ones with the clamps on them, we put the hole in the middle of the wall, no stud, and put the box in later, saves time and money and you get a straight line.all the same. Hope this helps.

Saw just quit.Reset didn`t work,are there fuses?


Are you plugged into a GFI? If so you may need to set the GFI receptacle also plug it into a different plug in and see if that works. In saying that I bought the same one and burnt out the motor in less than one hour from purchase. with not cutting any more than five pieces of pine board. They did replace the saw for me.

You can find a nice quality feather board that will fit your table saw from www.leevalley.com. They have one that comes with both 5/8" and 3/4" table bars and sells for about $15. I have one and it works great, Look under the Woodworking tab and type in feather boards. Look at the brand Versatile Featherboards. http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=60022&cat=1,240,45884,60022 You may want to call Lee Valley to see if they have a zero clearance insert that will fit your saw. Otherwise, order a new insert from Sears Parts Direct. From the picture on their website I believe it comes as a blank and you will need to cut the new opening in the insert. To do that lower the saw blade all the way below the table top, install the new insert, move the rip fence over top of the insert but not over where the saw blade would penetrate, turn on the saw, and slowly raise the blade up through the insert.

What is a compound miter saw?


A compound miter saw has a rotating vertical pivot allowing the cutter head & blade to be tilted (or beveled) sideways in addition to the horizontally rotating table. This allows vertical & horizontal angled cuts as well as cuts angled in both planes.

Craftsman tablesaw model number 315.218050 First let me say this saw is great and I have only great views of this saw. I was running a practice cut to check depth of cut and saw was working fine. ...


Jessie, It sure sounds like the switch has failed. You can replace the original switch with replacement swtich from Sears, or you can just replace it with a light switch from Home Depot. If you go with the light switch, use one with as high a capacity rating (amps) as you can find that will fit. However, if you go with an ordinary light swithch, you will also give up the safety feature or having a "key" for the switch. This is not a good idea if you have kids that might have access to your saw. Regarding the the wire connections, any single-phase switch will have only two terminals (besides the ground). These two terminals are interchangeable - it doesn't matter which of the two wires connect to which of the two terminals. Good luck. Please vote if you found this helpful. Al K

I just received my new saw 22116 however their is no dado insert which I use a lot. on other saw i have bought the insert was part of the saw. i have tried to find it in parts so far no luck. ken parkins


If you are unable to buy an accessory throat plate from Sears for your saw, you might like to look online at www.manageyourlife.com. You may be able to find accessories there that your local store doesn't stock.
I'm not familiar with your particular saw and it's throat plate, but you should know that many woodworkers make their own inserts using 1/2" plywood cut to fit the shape of the throat plate. You can trace your existing plate onto the form, then carefully cut it out and sand to fit. Insert small screws from beneath the plate to level it in position, level to the table top. Then cut a slot in the new throat plate by raising a small blade up through the new plate. Sometimes I use a skilsaw blade or dado blade to make the first cut. Do this only when it is safely held down with a long board clamped over top of it, while you raise the spinning blade up through the new throat plate to cut a slot or groove, as the case may be. If you can't lower the plate over the blade in its lowest position, you can either use a smaller diameter blade to cut through it, or rest the plate lightly against a blade lowered to its lowest position, then hold the plate in place safely with a long board or piece of plywood that rests lightly against it and holds just enough pressure that you cnn start your saw with the throat plate against the edge of the blade, then exert slight pressure downwards to fit the throat plate fully into the throat, cutting through it into the backing board, then you'll be able to raise the blade through the throat plate. This is a dangerous operation and should only be undertaken with safety equipment such as safety glasses or goggles in place, and alway keep your hands away from the moving blade and exerting force away from the moving blade. Exercise good judgement and caution and you should be able to plunge the new throat plate into position over the moving blade, using the backing board as a safety device/push stick.
If you are unsure about any of these instructions please don't hesitate to ask further, or refrain from taking any actions on your own, and in any event, proceed fully at your own risk.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

before you replace it, you can try and clean the commutator. To do this first unplug the tool and turn the saw on its backside. remove the brushes and find a emory board (cardboard) while turning the blade by hand (use a glove) lightly touch the board to the commutator to try and clean the surface, While doing this try and notice any raised sections of the comm, if there are any then you would need a new armature and possibly field. I would try cleaning first though. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Got a coronet band saw and it is not cutting true


Hello,
I am not familar with the Coronet saw and there are alot of reasons your saw may not be cutting true.
- Mark a straight line appx. 1" from the edge on a 2 foot board, using the fence cut the board. Does it stay on the line? if not this is called "Drift"
-Most fences on band saws have a drift adjustment. To adjust mark a board the same as before but this time don't use the fence and saw it down the line about half way, turn off saw with the board in the saw, now slide the fence next to the board. you will see a gap on one end or the other adjust fence to the board(i.e. drift adjustment) now you saw will cut true.
NOTE- on saws that don't have this adjustment you may have to shim the fence to fit.
-If you go to You Tube and look up band saw set up they will cover this in detail.

I hope this helps

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

7c68409.jpg

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.
