I have had the older Harbor Freight orange colored porta band saw for over 10 years and it has been a excellent saw and I am really happy with it, But the blade guides are worn out and the blade is eating away at the machine and I am worried its going to give out.

I picked up the newer version this last week and have to say I am pretty impressed with it. Its very similar to the Milwaukee saw, Its also a lot more powerful then the older version!

I made a new stand for it today out of some scrap diamond plate and more of the bed frame I had lying around. It holds the saw great and is really easy to take it out and use it free hand or on the job..
