    Splinter guards for my track saw rails… not glamorous, but necessary! The ones that are on both of my tracks currently are chewed up and have slid about 1/8″ away from the blade.

    Apparently DeWalt over at Home Depot, has a Dewalt 18V drill and impact driver combo kit, DCK235C, and it’s on sale for $99, but it is NiCad.

    Slid….I thought the edges just wear away like that.

    Gotta be done sometimes – How often do you replace yours? I’m on my second one since May

    This was delivered today. First impressions, a bit heavier than I expected, but well balanced.VERY smooth running! Feels like an extremely well built tool. I love the blade clamp/release mechanism.
    Looking forward to putting it to work next week!

    Congrats Brian. I’m looking at that as a redemption once I get an 18V Starlock OMT. Tired of my old corded recip.

    That looks like a winner!! It has the same shape as the DeWalt one.

    I don’t know how that would be possible…the blade is held at a consistent distance from the track itself, so the only explanation is that the rubber itself moved, right?

    This will be the first replacement for either of my tracks. They are probably 4-5 years old, but aren’t used a ton. I’m sure that the replacement is far overdue though!

    My rubber never movers at all.

    Ha, well I’m not sure they moved, but there is a gap between the edge of the blade kerf and the rubber strip nonetheless. Maybe the kerf on the Diablo blades I use is thinner than the original Makita blade?

    I always thought it was simply wearing away from the particulates it is sawing acting like a sandpaper of sorts wearing away the edge of the track.

    Looking at one of my track’s edges, I can see a delienation of the plastic strip from where the saw never plunges into hardly versus the rest of the strip. Can’t say this inconclusively proves it is due to particulate/waste wear causing this, but that’s my theory. FWIW.

    Pleas never use a diablo red blade on a Mikita saw,, stick with Tenryu or Mitsushita.

    Congrats! That looks like it will do some serious business.

    Why is that @dirtywhiteboy? I’m a big fan of Forrest blades, but I can’t quite justify a $110 blade from my track saw…just don’t use it enough. Diablo isn’t my first choice (for any application) but they seem to be doing just fine.

    I placed an order with Acme yesterday, they had a Veterans Day sale. Got the new Milwaukee 18V heat gun, 12V soldering tool and crown stapler, and a new hammer. Everything in stock but the soldering tool. Free shipping too.

    Nice buy Bill. I had seen they had an 11% off Veterans day sale. Have seen talk about maybe a 15% off black Friday sale so I held off.
