Hey I was pretty excited to get this miter saw. It’s a DeWalt 8.5 Crosscut(sliding) saw. I am guess it is about 20yrs old since on the label it says “Made in W.Germany”? It came with a nice Freud blade also! Here is the kicker, I traded it to an elder gentleman who didn’t want it, but wanted some video games for his grand daughter, so I get rid of some unplayed games for a descent miter saw, not bad eh? I think it should compliment my RAS nicely.
-What is the best lube for the sliding rods?
-It’s weird that I can’t find anything on this on the net or the DeWalt site, does anyone have one?
-On the handle, it has a lever you have to push so the blade guard comes up, it is a little sluggish, any suggestions on how to help that? A shot of WD-40 somewhere?
