@Coop, let me know how you use that knob that flips from side to side. Mine always seems to be on the wrong side! :blink:

Oh hell, more decisions:D. First I have to read the instructions on how to mount the blade as it came separate. This thing has about 5-6 adjustment knobs and screws. I’ll never throw the instruction sheet away!

I have that knob resting between the base of my thumb and index finger when I am using mine.

I was torn to which to get. Their site said their best seller and a couple of YouTube’s suggested the medium as well. Regardless, I can’t imagine me wearing out the blade.

I think you will like it. I have had mine for quite a while now and it gets used all the time. I have looked at the large several times but have not felt compelled to get it just yet :)

I solved that problem by taking it off. It caused problems for me when I changed hands. Someday I'll figure out what to do with the nice knob, but it probably has metric threads....

For? Have you used the Bora's before? The last two Grizzly mobile bases I have purchase the wheels have started to fail after a few years.

Hammer HS 950 coming soon.

Yes, I put the same Bora Portamate 3500 model on my SCM bandsaw. Works much, much better than the mobility kit that I got from SCM. I'm happy with it.

I've had HTC mobility bases (from Lee Valley) on a 14" bandsaw & a 17" General drill press for several years & they're doing fine. No issues with the wheels or the plastic foot pedals.
