Question: "genuine DeWalt Replacement...
Is "genuine DeWalt replacement part" in the description of "Ball Bearing 6302V a representation: 1. That the part fits?
2. That the part is O.E.M?
3. That the part meets DeWalt specifications for original manufacture?
4. All the above?
5. None of the above?
Reply: "genuine DeWalt Replacement...
As you are aware, there are many manufactures of ball bearings, and the 6302V is a very common bearing. I would think that Dewalt uses a bearing manufacture that meets their specifications and quality for the tools they manufacture.
Question: How Tall
How tall is the fence when installed on the saw? I used to have these AGES ago and lost them. I've made my own but would really just like the real deal. The reason being I have been doing a lot of crown molding. 7 1/4 crown needs a fence of 6 inches so will this be sufficient? Do they even make a fence taller for this saw?

Take the screw and washer out of the end of the shaft.Heat the pulley with moderate amount of heat or enough to soften up the loctite on the shaft. Put the screw 3/4 of the way back into the shaft and with a pair of gloves and a mallet tap on the screw and pull on the pulley and generally that will allow the pulley to come off. Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: DW706 Armiture Bearing Removal
I am trying to remove a stuck on armiture bearing without breaking the the fan. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Reply: DW706 Armiture Bearing Removal
The best way to remove the fan end armature bearing is with a bearing separator and a bearing press. The bearing separator will slide between the fan and the bearing. You can then press the bearing off.

Question: DW706 Type1 Miter Saw
The seal on part 134(ball bearing) broke off on my miter saw. I took it apart, removed the armature, and took it to a dewalt service center to buy a ball bearing for $8.00. First they told me they could try putting the armature in a vice and using something to pry the ball bearing off the armature shaft. I don't remember exactly so the method might have been something more professional but i do remember saying they would put it in a vice. They said in the process they might break the fan on the armature. I asked them to try anyway so I might not have to buy a new armature. Then they came back and said they wouldn't even try because it would just tear up the fan so I ended up buying a new $75.00 armature and fan plus the new ball bearing.
Is there not a gear puller made for safely pulling the ball bearing off the armature on this saw?
I searched online for gear pullers and found them cheap compared to buying a $75.00 part. Would a particular one work in this case?
Thanks for any info. anyone can provide.

A bearing splitter is whats needed..The best way I have found for this is to clamp the bearing in a bench vise with a rag covering the assembly..closing the jaws until the bearing breaks [the rag keeps everything from flying around] With a bearing splitter locked on the inner race of the bearing it can be pressed off in a hydraulic press [with thin press plates to get between the splitter and fan]..some shops will also cut off the bearing with a cutting wheel..
I also chuck up the armature in a drill press and the polish the shaft with emery cloth so that the new bearing will have a better fit and longer life..:) [the tight press from the factory is why the bearing failed in the first place]
The Dewalt center probably didn't want to go thu the hassle or they might have guidelines they have to abide by..I have done so many of these..I have it down to a matter of minutes..
Without having the correct tools to remove it is very difficult so most methods go back to cutting off the bearing and then pounding the new bearing back on..:mad:
Hope this info is helpful..?
Question: Trunnion Troubles
[SIZE="3][SIZE="4]My Dewalt DW 706 MItre saw has a broken trunnion by the rear. I don't know how it happened but the cast aluminum just broke off near the screw that holds the arm on. My question is: Has anyone had any luck replacing their own trunnion or is this a ship it in project. I consider myself pretty handy with repair. Help![/SIZE][SIZE="3][/SIZE][/SIZE]
Reply: Trunnion Troubles
I recommend sending this one in..sometimes the new part isn't exactly machined..[holes not threaded....clearances too tight.]...it can be frustrating and time consuming..!
Hope this is helpful..
