DW718XPS Saw balde


Recommended Posts

I've a DW718 saw (previous model to the 780) which I've only used for DIY over the past few years.  Never had a reason to change the original blade until today.


When out in America last summer, I picked up a 96 tooth Diablo blade with the intention of cutting some aluminium with the saw.  Problem is today was the first day I took the blade out of the packaging, and I've just realised that it has a 1" bore, and my saw has a 30mm arbor.  


I'm scratching my head, is the new blade just fit for eBay, or is there some genieus way of fitting a blade with an alternative arbor/washers?  I'm currently searching the house for the instruction and potentially any spare washers/spacers which might have come in the box originally?


I note that if you flip the arbur, it has what appears to be a 25mm inset, however the blade is too thin, and won't clamp tight when you secure the centre blade bolt.


Any ideas or adaptor kits you know of?
