Direct-Drive Motors are linked directly to the blade and transfer all of the motor’s power to the blade. Belt-Drive Motors have a belt that transfers power from the motor to the blade. In belt drive systems, the motor can be offset away from sawdust generated during operation, causing the motor last longer. Belt drive systems require slightly more preventive maintenance than direct drive systems. So you'll need to check the belts for wear and proper tension periodically.

Do you have these available now? I need two.

1. Fixya doesn't have prices or products to sell. Only folks offering advice.
2. There is no way to associate any questions you ask with a previous question you asked on the same subject. All questions are received in the order they come from folks all over the English speaking world and are handled by different people sitting at their home computers. I have no way of knowing what you are talking about in the questions you ask above.

Saw wont stay running

my first guess would be the power cord, or switch

If those test to be ok, and trying a different outlet, preferebly on a different circuit in the building doesn't change the result....

The motor may need replacement.

I have recently replaced my 29 year old craftsman 10" table saw with a new switch. In trying to turn it on, the motor hummed, slightly oscilated and tripped out the wall breaker. I checked the Sears parts...

You may find a replacement motor on ebay. I deal in Craftsman Belt drive table saws, yours looks to be a direct drive. Sorry I wouldn't be much help with those, Jim

After moving the table saw to a new residence i cant get the rip fence to line up with blade.i tried everything that was in the trouble shooting guide.

I am guessing it must be damaged beyond the adjustments. Are you sure the blade is aligned with the table? If not that could be the problem. I have most rip fences for craftsman belt drive saws available, Ebay 'Hokienpokie" or contact me via email, if you need another fence. Jim

I can't tell you whether parts for that are available or not. All I can find is a link to the manufacturer, but you could contact them and check, if this is indeed the same model you have. Link here.

We need the wiring configuration for the switch.

Contact a dewalt service center and they should tell you over the phone which wire should go where. I see that it has 3 prongs in the parts brake down. Most of the time the wires only reach one way. Here is a link to find your local service center.

Blade type

blades are available for different applications. A few common blades include:Steel Blades are inexpensive and work well for cutting softwood. Steel blades dull quickly in hardwood. High-Speed Steel Blades are harder than steel blades and stay sharp longer. Carbide-Tipped Blades are more expensive than other blades, but they stay sharp much longer than steel or high-speed steel.
