DeWalt 706 Type 1


I thought I'd ask here before I take the saw apart . This is the
1st model DeWalt came out with that would cut 5 1/4 base molding standing upright .

The saw now makes a hard/low pitched sqeauling , screeching noise when i use it . The brushes have been replaced so that is not the problem . I have had good luck repairing my dewalt tools in the past and this saw has performed very well for 10 years . It's perfect for the jobs I do (mainly kitchens ) and I would like to fix it . Anyone have any expeirence with this saw and any idea what has worn out on it ? Thanks .

Armature Bearings. Do a search. I just put up a post with photos of me replacing those bearings.

ghost I want to say thanks alot for your response . I took the saw apart and sure enough it is the front bearing . I ordered the parts and regreased both bearings and the saw sounds like new though I know it won't last long .

I ordered a new power cord and belt cover as well so for $55 w/shipping I will have a damn near new saw . Belt looked to be in fine shape .

I would like to ask where you got that little puller at . I'm assuming the auto parts store ? I am going to do exactly what you did as there is wobble in the front bearing but the rear bearing seems much more secure in it's place so while I ordered it I won't replace it unless the problem persists .

Thanks again $55 vs 400+ is te ony way to go , not to mention I don't like the newer style Dewalt saws for some reason . I guess I'm so used to the older style knob and handle setup . I always do my own tool maintence esp on the paslodes and the other tools are usually brushes or triggers .

I was talking to a duct guy the other day and we both own the DW 825 impact and he has paid $80 2 times to have the trigger replaced . Mine acted up and I took it apart and cleaned it and it's been good ever since .
I don't think he liked hearing that but hopefully he'll realizie in the future you can take those torx screws out yourself and most likely fix the problem on your own .

I also realized i need to find a 10 inch saw for when I don't need the capacity of the 706 . Does dewalt make a 10 inch that excepts the crown stops that fit the 706 ? Or any other recommendations for a 10 inch compound box that has crown stops available and doesn't weigh a ton ?
I cut alot of smaller cabinet crown .

Re: DeWalt 706 Type 1


yeah, its a batter post terminal puller, but it won't do the front bearing on the DW saws....


This is a video on how to do it. I am sure there is more then one way to skin this cat tho
