How long have you had the same saw with no problems
I'm just curious. How long have you had the same saw with no problems at all/ I've had an eclipse for 9 yrs. and not one problem. I've had a few saws over the yrs but this one is a dream and well worth the money. Just hope I have'nt jinxed myself. lol dogs

I bought my DeWalt 788 in June of 1998, and aside from a little tightening of stuff, it's been a trusty tool...
Love my 788...

My Hegner has been in service since 1998 with no problems.

I've had my 16 inch dremel for about 8 years. Would love one of those fancy new Ex's but budget won't budge.

I've had my dewalt since 2001 just upgraded to an ex21. The 788 is still a backup saw.
There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

I have had my RBI Hawk G4 26 since April of 2005. I have put over 2151 hours on it with no issues. I have an hour meter on it that tracks when the saw is running. That equates to about 6 hours per week.
That 6 hours does not count the thread and clamp time.

I have my Hegner 18v for over 25 years and did not have problems with it in all of the years I own it. It is a great machine and work horse.
