  1. OK, so today I listened to my wife and stopped at the new in my area Habitat for Humanity store. Well, I ended out getting a Rockwell 15 inch bench mount drill press (15 090) and a Dewalt 12 inch sliding miter saw. Here is where I am questioning my actions. The drill press runs fine with the exception of the quill return spring. The spring is missing. I did a quick check for one on the net and they want about $65. I'll check again and look for a used one. Other then that it works fine. Keep in mind that I already have 4 others and really don't need one. I only gave a quick look at the Dewalt and decided to buy it. When I got it home I noticed that the cord was not even present. Someone had cut it off right at the rear of the saw. What I originally saw was the rest of the cable as it snaked through the saw. So now I am questioning is it even works. I know it not a big deal to check I can just remove the existing wire and jump it. The saw was not sliding on the rails so I had to adjust and lube (OK, so not problem). I then noticed that the table was just flopping around so I disassembled the saw. What I found is the aluminum casting had been broken at the pivot point and no longer worked. So this requires some studying. I am thinking that I can do a decent repair by turning a piece out of aluminum or brass and make a press fit on one end and a running fit on the other. I will need to set both the table and base on the mill and bore the two pieces to ensure they are clean and perfectly round. I may be able to Lock Tite the upper table section to the new piece as it is pressed in. At least that is what I am thinking right now. I really don't want to spend any unnecessary money on this project. I guess the first thing is to make sure the motor works. This is another project that I really did not need. I already have 3 chop saws, but none are sliding. I have a radial arm, but it is hard to keep in alignment so I don't use this either. Its a good thing that I did not spend a lot of money, $50 total. I just did not need the additional work. I'll let you guys know how I make out. Paul
