The support piece is attached to the two rods through 2 large nuts. Note that you WILL need 2 crescent wrenches to assemble this part. The nuts are designed with a plastic liner on the end that is not grooved, so your first screw-in makes the grooves. The rod is flattened to allow for a crescent wrench to grab it so you can tighten. OK, it works there.
On the other end, the rods fit very loosely into the base of the 703. Most importantly, the 703 is designed so these rods only go in about 3 inches and then hit the base. Therefore there is NO "telescoping" functionality at all. From the minimal instructions, I take it the 708 is not like this and they can slide under the base, but the 703 only allows full extension. They give you screws to tighten down onto the top of the bars, through the base of the saw. These screws are almost impossible to get down in there. You will need a very large flathead screwdriver (at least 5/16" head) to crank this down. I had to clamp on an auto-loc handle onto the screwdriver just to tighten the screw all the way. Same goes for both screws.
So when it's all attached, it's fairly solid so far. But this is a somewhat permanent attachement the way those screws are. I don't want 20 inches sticking out all the time, and I can't telescope it in at all. I guess I'm suposed to keep the large screwdriver and the auto-loc handy whenever I want to attach or take off this thing. Who knows how long those screws will hold tight, then this thing is worthless.
VERY dissapointed in DeWalt on this. I thought they were suposed to be the best.
I mainly purchased it to use the DW7051 Length Stop, which seems to work okay. Luckily I have the DW723 Miter Saw Stand, which comes with it's own extentions, so I don't need to rely on the DW7080. If I had it to do over again, I would purchase some large steel rods or long bolts to substitute for the DW7080 since I don't need the extention function (which doesn't work so hot anyway).
DeWalt needs to make a quality extention specifically for the DW708 (which is a KILLER saw!), instead of having a generic one that is supposed to fit. The DW708 is a very well engineered tool, and the DW7080 does not do it justice as a companion accessory.

The extension does fit into the body of the saw but the extension bracket is lower (by about 1/4 inch) than the cutting platform. Not much use if it's not at the same height!Published 8 days ago by Wolfgang Guenther

I had read reviews that this works with the DW713 so I took a chance. It will fit the DW713 type 2, but it does not allow telescoping on the DW713 type 2 because the base only... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joe S

Will be returning. Expected that this would be telescoping. It would be in the way too much when not in use.Published 7 months ago by Diane
I had one of these on an older saw. They work well for pieces that are just a little long for the Miter saw table. I also added a stop attachment for this. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jeff
