is there something wrong with this jig saw? clacking sound as it stops


Recommended Posts

I know the Bosch I have isn't as harsh as that, but like ChrisK said I have never used a Dewalt so I don't know if that's some type of braking mechanism or just a sound it makes. Hopefully some dewalt guys can weigh in.

Well, if it's cutting and not binding I'd think you'd be okay. Are blade changes going alright? How "used" is it? What orbital setting have you got it in? Have you tried other orbital settings? If it got a lot of use you might want to change the brushes in the saw.


I'm not sure which model of saw you have but after researching, here is the brush for the Type 1 Dewalt DW317 Orbital saw. The link is to e replacements which is an awesome company to do business with. Outside of that unfortunately....I haven't a clue as I've never used that guy before! Good luck dude, and keep us posted on what you find out!
