Dewalt Chop Saw Stand Brackets


The lever in the locking system of the bracket on the Dewalt Chop Saw Stand fail over time.
Is there a fix for this problem?

Buy a new bracket.

How long are they lasting for you?

I just replaced the ones on both my saws, I got almost 3 years

Re: Dewalt Chop Saw Stand Brackets


If you are talking about the little plastic thig-a-ma-jig that prevents you from depressing the release lever, I taped it down with electrical tape .

Iím sure there is a better fix but, this has worked for a couple of years for me

I have some older ones of a slightly different design, never had a problem with those

I usually cut off the spring loaded lever that pops up and tends to bind.

Re: Dewalt Chop Saw Stand Brackets


I was just thinking about this as Iím building a new stand and these are getting bad reviews.

Iíll attempt to explain what Iíve come up with

Cut out the whole black plastic deal. Screw a block of wood in there with a threaded insert which you can use to cam down another wooden tab onto the stand.

Duburban,

Any chance you have a photo of your fix that you could share? Last time I used my Dewalt saw and stand I thought I was going to have cut them apart with a sawzall at the end of the day and this sounds like it could be a good option for fixing it without buying new brackets.
