How to change the blade? - Dewalt 12" Beveling Sliding Compound Miter Saw Dw718


I don't know if this will help you much but I've got a DeWalt 14 inch chop saw and a 10 inch miter saw and they both have a small lever on the right hand side of frame just behind blade If you depress this lever and slowly rotate blade until it drops into place this locks the blade for changing. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I HAVE A DW716 MITER SAW AND NEED TO CHANGE THE BLADE, BUT I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW TO REMOVE THE BLADE GUARD. I KNOW THAT I NEED TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT BLADE WRENCH TO DO THE JOB. CAN YOU TELL ME THE CORRECT PART NUMBER FOR THE BLADE WRENCH AND WHERE I CAN LOCATE PICTURES OF THE BLADE REPLACEMENT PROCESS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, RICH WATT


Hi there You do not need to remove the blade gaurd to change the blade. You only need to raise it enough to acces the blade screw. Unplug the saw. Raise the blade arm. Raise the guard to it's upper position. On the left side of the blade, just forward and up slightly from the blade screw is a screw for the guard bracket. Loosen, but do not remove this screw. Once it's loosened the guard can be raised farther exposing the blade screw. pg 6 of the manual illustrates this process, here's a link so you can see the parts I am discribing, http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?isId=true&productNumber=DW716&selectedType=12803# click the pdf icon next to instruction manual, then open the file. As for the blade wrench, this should have come with the saw, there is a slot in the base for storing the wrench, on the back left side, it slides in and out for safe keeping. If you have misplaced the wrench the DEWALT part number 608563-1

My Dewalt miter saw DW718 seems frozen. When I squeeze the handle, the blade doesn't move and the motor makes a sound like it's laboring, but stuck.


There's a little black button to press to lock the blade so you can loosen the screw. Did it get stuck in the in position? Can you turn the blade by hand (unplugged of course)? I believe the 718 has a belt drive. Could the belt be broken and be buckled or twisted in its case preventing any movement? Was it left out in the weather and did you get water in the bearings?

Need to calibrate my dw708 sliding compound miter saw. How to adjust the slides for a true cut. The blade is square.


I use a framing square off of the back fence with the blade down. when it is square, i check the other side of the fence and loosen the screws on the plate with the degree increments and set it to zero

Just purchased the DW718, the weather turned cold, below freezing, and when you pull the trigger the blade is laboring to spin, but after 5 to 10 seconds it comes up to speed. Help


Grease in the bearings have some moister in them ....might try an electrionic cleaner to dry up some of it
