To lube the tension lever, you will need to remove the 4 screws that hold the black control cover and then remove the screw that holds the tension lever down. Grease can be placed on the bottom side of the lever. Use blue Locktite to secure the lever hold down bolt.

The DW788 uses sealed bearings that do not require additional lubrication.

Use a good quality paste wax to buff the table in order to prevent rust.

This scroll saw is equipped with a 3 amp overload protection fuse. If it becomes overloaded and stops operating, turn off the scroll saw, check for a blown fuse by removing the fuse cap. This scroll saw uses #3AG Fast Acting fuse, 11/4"long x 1/4" diameter.
