    DW788 Rebuild

    Hank - I did the check you recommended -the connecting rod to motor shaft seems like a very good fit - no detectable movement. Charlie that bearing look good too - I had previously disassembled and lubed all the bearings. That connection was pivoting very well. I disassembled the entire drive...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Hank - the nut (that is on the motor shaft) is tight! I am putting side load on the connecting link to eliminate the noise but youb are correct in that I'm not sure why yet. My gut sys it is side play in the smaller bearing on the right. Rick

    I"m not 100% convinced that it is a bearing problem yet. I plan to disassemble and check further Rick

    DW788 Rebuild

    After doing some internet researching and reviewing a document sent to me by a fellow member - It seems the most predominant cause of noise is in the tension adjustment. More specifically banging of the tension adjustment arm against the top cover for the bellows. Some pictures - first is the...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Thanks Charlie - that makes sense to me. If it wasn't attached I'm not sure what would keep the bellows from sliding off the arm and not compressing Rick

    DW788 Rebuild

    OK - my current approach is to start over so I have a couple of questions. 1. In watching the Bob Brokaw 2019 update video they show the bellows not attached to the button on the rocker arm. On my machine the rocker arm button was inserted into the narrow end of the bellows. I'm not sure...

    DW788 Rebuild

    No I haven't thrown the saw into the trash :) I correction to the discrpncies noted above - #4 - upon closer examination item #61 is described as the circjuit board and potentiometer. So I'v adjusted the tension rod quite a few times - mainly becaue I had it out of whack pretty far. I...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Well my plan was to disassemble per the Bob Brokaw videos. I ended up doing that and pulling all of the linkages apart to inspect each bearing and sleeve. Based on the criteria in the video I didn't see any signs of wear. I also didn't see a lot of lubrication. I cleaned, greased and...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Charley lent got back to me and provided a lot of good advice. He didn't have his bearing list handy but I was able to find the information on other forums - mainly scroll saw workshop. I am using the Bob Brokaw videos (1st one linked above) - there are at least 6 available. You can easily...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Hank - the videos I watched were made by Bob Brokaw and sponsored by the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association. I don't see where Bruce recommedned a video? I will check with Charles about bearing/sleeve list and sources. IO have seen some posts by him on other scrolling sites - if I don't hear...

    DW788 Rebuild

    Thanks Scott - I will send Charles a message. I suspect I am not going to find a bearing/sleeve source that has acceptable (to me) pricing. My current approach is to evaluate each of the bearings and sleeves individually and replace as necessary. Hopefully Charles can give some guidance on...
