are we talking about the cut off saw or the dirt bike? Congrats on the new saw. After using mine now for about a year now I want a combo drop saw both horz. and vert. Makes for a much cleaner shop. But it's all in my wish list. Have fun with it, watch out for the hot burs down the back of the next wakes you up in a hurry.
Looks good. They make a ton of difference than using a angle grider. Have you ever used one before?
Never used one... I did get to try it on some 2X2 angle last night.. Cuts like butter. Little nasty with the sparks flying. Looks like I'll have to make some kind of a shield. Sparks aren't good with a dirtbike full of gas sitting behind you.

I'll give you a bit of advice - I've always called them chop saws because that is how you use them. If you just bear down on it, the heat will make your cut not-square. What you want to do is cut, then let off a bit, then cut again, let off, cut, ect. This keeps the heat from building up, and it will help your blades to last longer too.
Also - More sparks = good. Welding caps work great for keeping the sparks from rolling down your back. Baseball cap on backwards works too, but not easily with a full face guard.
Good Luck, you will enjoy it..........

Yeah i agree, if the metal gets too hot it wont cut any more, I mean it could be red and the disc just spinning on it. Be aware of this and don't force it when its not cutting. There's a reason, just let off and let the metal cool a bit then it should slice right through.
I'm used to working with wood so this didn't make sense to me for a long time, but I'm learning.
