Adam9182 Posted April 6, 2011 Report Share Posted April 6, 2011 I have a DW716 mitre saw with a DWS7085 light mounted on it. I am getting a shock when I touch any metal on the saw (I am in sock feet on a concrete floor). I have called dewalt and they replaced the saw and light with new ones and I am still experiencing this. The shock is very little, with a digital multi meter I can measure 100 ac volts between the base of the saw and ground. If I touch the saw and ground it through me the volts is 0 between ground (b/c it is going through me). It is a tingle voltage this is going through the whole saw, it is such little amperage unless I touch it with my wrist or anyother sensitive skin I can't feel it. I know the LED worklight is 3.3 dc volts. If I unmount the light from the saw the tingle voltage stays with the light. I am just curious if I am the only one that has experience this problem, b/c Dewalt Canada doesn't seem to be to concerned about it. Sorry if this seems confusing I didn't have a lot of time to type . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
