Re: Just Bought Sawstop Job Site Saw


I'm using an old delta contractor saw at the house. It's old.

My dewalt is about a year old. Still dead on. Even building bathroom vanity cabinets etc. I check it once in awhile but it's always right where it should be.

Save yourself some time and put a decent aftermarket fence on your saw.

I'm a Bosch guy, but I love the DeWalt jobsite TS. The fence is pretty darn sweet.

Re: Just Bought Sawstop Job Site Saw


I wondered if dewalt had a patent on their fence. Seems like it should be an industry standard.

Mine has been letting me down for the past five years. Can't keep it square to the motor. And the damn motor doesn't stay parallel when angled over as well. Might be time for a new saw if a big tune up doesn't take care of it.

Its gotta be your saw. My carpenter has one and he keeps it in the back of his pickup with a trap over it all year around and is true.

Re: Just Bought Sawstop Job Site Saw


Oh it's the saw alright. I've had some asses beat on it over the years. Someone moved the fence into the blade. Someone else forced the fence over without unlocking it and skipped the r&p teeth. Then proceeded to rip plywood with the back of the blade a good 1/8" closer to the fence. It took two guys to haul the ply thru. I came down off the roof and was like WTF! It's over 10 years old.
