  • Wrenches are available again!

    This gentlemen is making wrenches for our beloved BT3X saws. Should have a sample set in hand next week

    I have bought many items from this source. All have been of exceptional quality.

    Highly recommended

    Those look really nice. If I still had a BT 3000 series I’d pick up a set

      You really need on of these for the arbor lock if you have a BT3 saw.
      The hex wrench endss are easily replaced by a 3/4 and a 1/2" wrench. But the Arbor Lock end is really handy for the BT3

        I still have the OE wrenches for my saw, but saved this seller just in case...

          New wrenches received.
          Note the size difference. I like this feature for its clearance from the blade. Although, I have always thrown a rag over the blade in the past when making adjustments and changes.

            I had no idea they were that much longer than the OEM ones... Seriously considering them now...

              JMHO the extra long length will lead to over torquing the arbor nut.

                Good point. I suspect most people overtorque the blade. Doesn't really take much. I use a 3/4" combo wrench, mostly because its more comfortable, but I go easy on it. It is self tightening by virtue of the left handed thread.

                I had also read that one doesn't need to tighten the nut much because it will self tighten further when turned on. But when I followed that tip, I had the spinning blade stop in the middle of a cut - it was quite scary. So now I tighten the nut quite a bit - although not necessarily super tight.

              I bought a set, received them last week. High quality and well made! A little bit pricey, but what isn’t these days.
              Just my opinion….If you need them (like I did…my saw didn’t come with them)…they are an excellent choice, well made and fast shipping!
