Looks good. They make a ton of difference than using a angle grider. Have you ever used one before?

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.

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.
