    New Guy with a good Dewalt story

    Hey everyone I’m new here, I’m a retired Philadelphia Firefighter and own a small Contracting company that specializes in Marine Construction, Docks, Decks, pilings etc. Although I’ve been doing a lot of laminate plank flooring lately whatever pays the bills, Anyway I live in a very small resort town on the Atlantic Ocean called Diamond Beach it’s just above Cape May Nj . I just purchased a New Dewalt circular saw today model DW358, if you’re scratching your head saying they haven’t made that saw in over 20 years he’s got the wrong number well you’re right and wrong.They haven’t made it since the mid 90’s but I found one today at a Local mom and pop Hardware store so I called Dewalt and since I have a receipt they said I can register it even though some of the replacement parts are discontinued. Just wondering if anyone else has had anything with new old stock and what the manufacturer told you?If anyone remembers Hechinger they were a big box store like The Depot or Blowes! This is where the saw came from originally but when they went out of business my local guy bought a bunch of stock. Check out the pictures and I’ll see you on the high seas! P.S. this was made here in the good ol USA! Regards Captain Jack

    Dewalt miter saw won’t work in the cold

    I’ll be staying up in Sask for now. This has been the coldest winter we’ve had in a long time. I’m gonna try to take apart my miter saw this weekend. I mainly use it to cut cement board siding. Might be full of cement dust. We’ll see.

    Dewalt miter saw won’t work in the cold

    Ever since they started keeping records there has never been a tornado within city limits at least that is what I have heard.

    Ha. Move to New England. Few hurricanes, fewer tornadoes, the wildlife ain’t trying to kill you. The worse thing is the driving, but I’ve been to Florida and yeesh.... everything... EVERYTHING.... is trying to kill you! Plus...New England has...Tom Brady. Nuff said. As far as the saw? Beats me bro, have you tried replacing the brushes in it? Also, welcome to the forums.

    Dewalt miter saw won’t work in the cold

    Welcome to the forum. Get out of Dodge, so the problem stays there and you get warm. It is highs in the low 80s and lows in the low 70s this week in southern Florida... The saw lubrication has either degraded or is inappropriate for those cold temperatures. When I relubricated my hole shooter the old grease was hard and the new OEM grease was great.
  19. Working outside in -20 degree Celsius. My miter saw doesn’t want to fire up right away, it screeches and slowly turns for about ten seconds and sometimes starts to smoke before it starts spinning normally. It keeps working fine after that if I’m continually making cuts. The blade is stiff to turn by hand too before I get it going for the first time. All my other saws (skill saw, table saw etc.) work fine. Only have a problem with the miter saw.

    How do you guys store bare tools?

    I used to store my tools in the cases they came with and in canvas bags for the bare tools I purchased. It was effective but tedious to make multiple trips carrying several cases and bags. now I use the PACKOUT system to store and haul all my primary stuff and I love it.

    What kind of adapter do you use on the table saw? I'm getting sick of using masking tape.

    What tools did you buy today?

    Unfortunately they need a beefier bracket holding the switch, they tend to break with heavy shop use. They are a nice size for smacking with your knee though.
