Hi, i have a problem with blade coming loose on brand new DeWalt DW717XPS mitre saw, i'm on my second saw now, the first one was only out of the box an hour , did a few test cuts before blade came loose, replacement saw came last Wednesday and same thing happened again today, both times i checked blade retaining bolts making sure they were tight, blade rotation is clockwise and retaining bolt
is L/H thread, are these saws faulty or am i doing something wrong, your thoughts or advice would be much appreciated,
many thanks Keith.

I don't know if the saws are faulty but two faulty machines is two too many.

Send it back.
Demand your money back plus any postage and go and buy a Makita.

regards
Al

I have the 718 model and have had it for about a year now and it has been fine. looks like they may have a bad batch of those. :shock:

came loose.
many thanks Keith.
