You do not have to drill anything out, if you are talking about the hold-down locking pin that keeps the blade assy locked down when not in use. I have created a tutorial for replacing the locking pin, you can find it here, http://mgfic.com/dewalt708_lockingpin.htm

Have a dewalt dw708-lx type3 just replaced the on/off switch as the previous failed(13yr old)did two cuts this morning and new switch has now failed


Curious if you have tested the switch to make sure it is the problem? Also, have you checked the armature & brushes (make sure the brushes move freely in the brush tubes and squarely contact the armature)?
The DW708 is prone to bearing issues and the field is not uncommon either.

It would be unlikely to have a new switch fail that soon unless there is another issue causing it.

How to take off the pin that hold the ajustment lever on a DW 713 Dewalt Miter saw ?


I would use a hammer and a smaller diameter punch than the pin. Take a few wacks and see what happens. If it is rusted soak it with something like liquid wrench over night.

This is the newer 744 series, white cord to white motor and black cord wire to black motor.

If your motor needs the mag starter that 5th loose wire, usually red, goes to the start terminal on the mag starter.

I assume you are asking about the Dewalt

http://www.ereplacementparts.com/dewalt-dw708-type-crosscut-miter-saw-parts-c-1009_1163_2604.html

Have you taken it apart yet? You will need screwdrivers, spring clip pliers, small bearing puller and a pipe same diameter as the inside of the bearing; for replacement of bearing.
Be sure to take out the brushes before taking out the armature.
Part 165-90
You most likely will have to replace part 87 too.
The bearing rests in there and gets worn too.
Serious bearing/vibration problems causes the end cap part 84, to wear out.
