  • Can I use the DWE7491X/DWE7491RS to cut metal, cement board, masonry,etc.?
    No. The saw is designed for cutting wood, it is not recommended to cut any materials other than wood.
  • Can I use a dado blade with the saw?
    Yes. The DWE7491RS will accept a 8-inch Dado Blade,Max width of Dado is 13/16″.
    If using dado blade, you have to use proper dado throat plate which sold seperately.
    The DWE7402DI Dado Throatplate insert fits these table saws, allows use of stacked dado cutters.
    Do Not stack dado blades thicker than 13/16″, do Not use dado blades larger than 8″ diameter.
  • Does DeWalt offer a zero clearance throat plate for DWE7491RS/DWE7491X?
    No. DeWalt has not made any zero clearance insert for the DWE7491RS/DWE7491X.
  • What’s the arbor size?
    5/8 inches.
  • How does the saw collect dust? Does it include a dust collector bag?
    The DWE7491RS and DWE7491X have 2 ports for dust extraction purpose: a 2-1/2″ OD main dust collection port at the back of the saw can be used with a standard shop vac and a 1-1/2″ OD port on the blade guard.
    (Here is a good shop vac to consider if you do not own one.)
    If the port size does not fit your shop vac hose, you may want to buy an adapter kit,such as Rockler conversion adapter, to change the exhaust size to make it able to fit your vacuum hose.
    If you want to handle both ports to minimize clean up, you may need to buy a Y-Connector for the DWE7491RS/DWE7491X as recommended in the DWE7491 user manual. It will split the hose into 2, so you can connect both dust collection ports. But you will need additional adapters and hose to get it done.
    This saw does not come with a dust bag. You can buy a table saw dust bag like Bosch TS1004 to collect sawdust, it should work. Sometimes, hooking up a shop vac with the table saw to collect the dust is not always realistic. So, using a dust bag is a good choice.
