Works well without tools

This blade holder works very well without tools. I have an older 220VS model and the existing barrels require a tool. These "new parts" do not require a tool.
Great and fast

Hawk is the best!
Great Upgrade for Older HAWKS

I purchased a used HAWK from a yard sale and upgraded to the new barrel immediately. The old one required tools and mine was worn so it didn't hold blades very well.
Upgraded barrel holder.

Put it to work immediately. Great improvement over old barrel clamp.
Great product, horrible shipping.

I lost my bottom blade holder while moving around due to the military, so thus was a perfect fit replacement.
The shipping however left a nasty taste behind. It took 2 months for this to arrive here in Colorado. I requested expedited shipping and still got 8 weeks.
Over all, a great product, with bad shipping management.
*Addendum from HAWK - The barrel style blade holders were out of stock. The machine that makes them is still having issues. Please bear with us while we work to resolve these issues. This blade holder is only useful to saws over 23 years old.
Best lower guide for older Hawk models

The lower guide offers a much easier solution to setting the blade in the lower holder. The old version required a wrench and patience to get the blade centered on the guide.

The red plastic cracked the first time I tried it. I just took off the rest and use an Allen wrench to tighten it.
Still Can Get Parts

It is gratifying to be able to get parts for my saw even though it is almost 20 years old. The parts still fit and the saw is still doing excellent work. The only downside is I thought the price is a bit high, although it is less expensive than a new saw.

Having several allows a quick blade change when one breaks or different blade to use
