    25th anniversary w/ my BT3 saw

    I just realized that I am now in my 25th year with my BT3000 saw, I think I purchased it new in about January of 2000, its serial number is in late 1999.

    I've used it on and off, it's given me a lot of satisfaction. I never really feel like I outgrew it.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

      Congratulations! And what silver tool are you going to buy for celebration? I will have mine for 24 years this fall.

        I received my BT-3000 in August, 1996 as a gift. The date code indicates it was manufactured in the ninth week of 1996. I had first used a friend's BT-3000 earlier. I didn't realize that I was coming up on my 28th year with the saw! (Until this thread). I've enjoyed using the saw all these years.
