Much used DW742

Reading through some posts on diynot.com today and found this guy, talking about his flip over saw. Read what he had to say and I quote:-

“That saw is the best bit of kit I ever bought, it cost me £600 in 1994 – but it has paid for itself several hundred times by now.

The best thing is, that it just keeps on going – I even left it in a leaky shed for a winter, Its rusty now but still purrs as good as it did when i first bought it.

You can still buy all the parts for it – even the brushes and bearings for the motor. It can sit on a table, or has its own sturdy legs. You can get a fence extension attachment that will handle 8′ x 4′ boards (although once you are familiar with it sawing a full board isn’t too tricky, especially if youv’e a helper).

This saw is a classic – how many other powertools are still being produced 25 years after they were introduced? They got the design absolutely right first time with this one.”

Now that is a great testimony and check out the price!!! Fifteen years on and no price increases, awesome.

Nuff said.

Stay well
