Default How to carry EZ saw

There are so danged many categories I had no clue where to post this. Figured I'd stick it here, and the mods can move it elsewhere if they want to.


I bought a Makita 8 1/4" EZ-ready saw from Eurekazone. But I don't have a good way to store/carry it.

A typical saw case for a circular saw won't work because of the base & dust chute.


I figure I can't be the first person who has come up against this problem. So if you have ideas I'd sure like to hear 'em.


BTW - I wandered over from Breaktime. Anyone else here that's a regular over there?

I kept my EZ-Ready Hitachi saw inside its original Hitachi box ... until last fall when the box spontaneously dissolved (fell apart due to age).

I've been planning to build a plywood box for it with some 2-by's on the bottom to support the base and allow the blade to hang down through them ... but haven't gotten to it yet.

Maybe EZ could make an affordable systainer that is sized so the Smart Base and dust ports fit the box.

Maybe it would fit in a large systainer or Lboxx already? Has anyone tried?

Default Large LBoxx

Just added a base to my Makita 5007MGA. Yet to add the dust nozzle. It fits with room to spare in a large Bosch LBoxx either on the side or handle up. I might add a spacer under the blade on the bottom of the box just to protect the blade and bottom of the case.

Sorry, my 5008MGA was recently stolen and unavailable for a test fit. But, I think it would fit too.

Jeff - Sorry to hear you had a saw stolen. Tool thieves suck.

Is that the L-BOXX-3 or the L-BOXX-4 that you have?

That looks like the best option I've seen so far.

Boss,
Just by luck I ran across this "Vaultz" file folder box. You can get them in Staples and Office Depot. I put some foam padding in the bottom and Voila! Instant saw box!

There are five pictures and that is a Makita 5008 saw in the box.

That's definitely the 4. I can see there's a lot of of room left above it, and I don't think the 3 is deep enough. Throw an extension cord over it and it should be a good way to go. My saw doesn't leave the shop much, but I might get one of these for the rare occasion.

Thanks for your concern. I really didn't need an excuse to buy more new tools...

The box is an L-BOXX-4.

Jeff, I have an L-BOXX-4 on the way. UPS is supposed to deliver it today.

Gonna be out of town for a few days. If I get the saw in the box next week I'll post a pic showing how well it fit.
