I own a DW716. My blade wobbled. I found that the small bearing on the motor end of the blade spindle had been pressed out a bit. This bearing is right behind (or perhaps attached to) the cap that shows on the motor side of gear assembly housing. I tapped it back in so it was flush to, or even a bit inset of the surface of the gear assembly housing and the wobble disappeared! Yeah! Cheap and Easy.

SOURCE: I HAVE A DW716 MITER SAW AND NEED TO CHANGE THE

Hi there
You do not need to remove the blade gaurd to change the blade. You only need to raise it enough to acces the blade screw. Unplug the saw. Raise the blade arm. Raise the guard to it's upper position. On the left side of the blade, just forward and up slightly from the blade screw is a screw for the guard bracket. Loosen, but do not remove this screw. Once it's loosened the guard can be raised farther exposing the blade screw.
pg 6 of the manual illustrates this process, here's a link so you can see the parts I am discribing,

click the pdf icon next to instruction manual, then open the file.
As for the blade wrench, this should have come with the saw, there is a slot in the base for storing the wrench, on the back left side, it slides in and out for safe keeping. If you have misplaced the wrench the DEWALT part number 608563-1

SOURCE: I replaced the blade in

Hello, W/D here.

Remove your new blade. With the hardware, bolt, washer,blade and cups off, try the saw. If it operates correctly, re-examine how the blade is installed One blade cup goes on, followed by the blade, then the other cup, followed by the washer and bolt assembly. If the cups were in the wrong order, the blade can drag against the frame of the saw, pulling too many amps, and tripping the breaker.

Remove the blade and place on a flat surface to make sure it is not warped. Also make sure that you have the blade mounted properly on the motor spindle.

How to gear spindle from housing


The unit is retained by two or three screws surrounding a retaining ring on the saw blade side, and I believe there are some screws holding the gear housing on the motor side that need to be removed as well. I just replaced the bearing on mine a week ago, and even though the situation is obvious once you figure it out I was not smart enough to do so, and wasted an hour trying to figure out how to remove that retaining ring over the bearing. Good luck

I have an old Sears Craftsman 7" Electric Handsaw model #315.27782. The blade I use for fine sawing has begun to wobble. I've taken it off, put it back on and tightened it several times. Same wobble. ...


It could be that the bearings that support the shaft that holds the blade are worn, allowing the shaft to move slightly and make the blade wobble. As the machine is an older model, I would try replacing the bearings.

Blade acts unusual


Hi, Blade wobble at high speed can be very dangerous! The saw at the right ( wrong) wobble can destroy itself.There are a few things that can cause it, And you have to check them as best you can before you power it back up. Check the blade, you can lay two blades together and check for gaps anywhere. Check that the hub and spindle are flat where the blade goes. (No lock washers) Also check the spindle for side to side movement, there shouldn't be any. Turn the spindle by hand and see if you feel any grit or sandy type feeling, you shouldn't. Lastly, if you don't find anything, try a new blade of a different type, and if it wobbles again, check and see if you have any warranty left and even if you don't you should contact Makita about it.
About the best I can do from long distance. Let me know what you find, Please.

Dewalt 708 sliding compound mitre saw


Probably a worn bearing. The only other thing that I have seen cause this is a bent spindle. This would usually occour if the machine has had an impact or if the blade has been suddenly jammed against a nail or something in the work that has caused it to jam and/or jump up.
A good indicator for bearing wear is to see how much play is in the blade in an up/down and side to side movement (unplug saw, safety first).
To check spindle, remove blade and run machine without the flanges etc on. Rest a scredriver gently on the shaft as it spins and see if you notice any (uniform) vibration.
