I just treated myself to a Makita tracksaw, and I wanted to make a storage box for it. I picked up some 11mm baltic birch and obviously used the new tracksaw to cut it down to size. Such a game-changer coming from a plywood guide and circular saw, and a Kreg Accu-cut.

I put a threaded insert and knob under the lid for blade storage.

Why would you take the blade off? Storage box’s always good idea, when I picked up my Dewalt it came with a pretty decent plastic box.

Nice box, I am curious though do you take the blade off, and if so why? safety?

I don’t take the blade off for storage. The saw comes with a 48 tooth crosscut blade, and I have ordered a rip blade for it, so I will need a spot for whatever blade is not on the saw at the time.

Gotcha, was curious. And that is a good idea to have extra blade storage.
