    Ok, I have one. If they make one for the other side in Blue I guess I will have to try it LOL.

    If black is the only color right now, looks like I’ll have to wait several years before orange makes an appearance. I’m still waiting for the orange magnetic bowls to appear.

    Does it only work with their tools? Or will it work with other brands?

    No budget for that right now, but I might grab one of the Bauer band saws for 90$ if any of the stores here get it back in stock.

    That’s nifty looking, I’d have to mount it to the wall or something with my current layout though.




    This makes me want to toss the dice on the Hercules cordless line for a few tools.

    I have a white box, I've been in the same boat for about half of the accessories. I'm OK with the black though. Once my local store has it in stock I plan on getting one to try out. I keep my lid on my cart open, so I'm hoping I can go over the top lip of the lid instead of off the side of a cart like shown.

    It's just holes and slots with some magnets and a lip, so it should work on just about anything that'll fit.

    I looked at the pictures people have put on the site with comments. They have Kobalt and Dewalt so it does LOL.

    Get the ITC membership. Savings on the one tool will pay for it, other savings are a bonus on top.

    I love it. Best HF purchase I've ever made. Use to cut metal with a grinder/cutoff wheel. The band saw has made life much more comfortable by being quieter, faster, and cleaner.

    I figured it would be slower but, I was willing to make that trade for quieter and cleaner. It’s nice to know that’s not the case.

    What blades do you use? I know I’ve asked a couple of people on here already, I don’t remember if you were one of them.
    One said he got Milwaukee blades and the other said the Hercules ones were doing well.

    I've been using the Hercules blades. I've only had one break and that was my fault. I've used it to cut steel, aluminum, cast iron, wood. Everything from the aluminum platforms I used for the patio on my trailer to cutting down old axles to make LSD alignment stubs.
    Get a couple different blade sets so you use the right tooth count for the metal thickness and it goes through stuff quickly. Don't try to force the blade through, let the blade do with work with the weight of the saw itself. Or, get the mount kit for it to turn it to a vertical band saw.

    At the end of the day, you won't be covered in metal and cutoff wheel dust. Plus your neighbors won't be upset from the noise.

    I was looking at their TPI variations, 16$ per pair is a good deal. Seems like most of the other brands are in that range too, maybe 20$ for a pair at Lowe's or Home Depot.

    I'll build a table for it, that was always the plan. I have some good scrap metal lying around I should be able to fashion something basic and useable up with.

    Damn that just saved me from having to Buy a Newer Bigger Box. I didn't realize the Side Boxes had the Hanger on both side until I just went out and looked at mine LOL.
