I think it was a good deal!!

I was gawking on Craigslist and happened across a metal chop saw for $50. The pictures looked good and it was only about 15 miles from work. I have wanted one for years, but for limited use, I couldn't see the price of a new one. The only issue I see is that the angle guage came off while I was driving home. It has/had VERY small pins of some sort holding it in place and they are gone. Any ideas on some kind of a fastener to replace them?? I tried it out at home, and it worked great. Chris

That is a chop saw worth having. The ones with the universal motors don't make enough power to cut much. Great score!

You don't want to leave it off. Doing so will lower the value to some buyers as you will certainly lose it. You can rivet it on. Maybe epoxy. Or try various machine screws until you find one that works.

Having it on there doesn't mean you have to use it. I use a gauge to check all my angles before I cut. I think most do.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

+1 Knew an auto tech that was using the little 3" cutoff discs to cut the muffler clamps on a car up on a hoist. He twisted the tool, blade exploded, he ended up with about 50 stiches in his neck.
Luckily, his co-worker was there and got on the phone to 911, then did his best to stem the bleeding. He told me he almost passed out, would of bled out without help.

Ever since, I've been leary of those handheld cutters.

Good looking saw. I want to second what ztr mowers warned about, earlier. Those abrasive blades have strength only in the plane of rotation. The least bit of lateral force while cutting can make the blade come apart explosively. I've had this happen at least three times (slow learner, I guess). It is very dangerous to try to secure the item you're cutting it by holding it, but you might be tempted to try when its irregular shape makes it difficult to clamp it in place. If the item shifts, the blade will not simply bind up as the blade of a circular saw usually does when that happens---it will fly apart violently. I've been hurt (pain, not injury) when that happened, and once saw a person working nearby get hit in the back of the neck by a piece of an exploding blade. Fortunately, although it was painful, it didn't break his skin. Stan

As others have said the angle gauge is not accurate enough to be of any good, myself I would leave it off.

For what it is worth I get the best results from Makita wheels.

pop rivets simple as that. be careful with it i used to use those all time till had 3 blades explode at different times. you basically burning the material into when cutting. seldom use work great otherwise they will go thru blades, i changed over to metal bandsaw would never go back. just please be careful and wear face shield when use it!!!!! good luck and for seldom use you will be fine.

Now that is a chop saw. We had one like it years ago. Be sure you calculate the arbor RPM before you purchase blades as some of the industrial saws run higher RPMs than the farm store /box store blades are rated for.

Try roll pins to hold it in position , otherwise drill and tap as has been suggested .

I bought a Makita about that size. Has the motor up on the handle and the blade is attached to the motor shaft. Don't use it much, but it comes in handy when I do need it. I think it was $160 back in '88, so you could about double that with inflation.

I get sick when I remember what I paid for tools before Craigslist, I'd be lucky to get 25% of what I paid for it back then. And it was always brand new.....no easy way to find used back then.

That's a nice saw. It actually has a real motor on it. Good find.

You were smarter than I was to jump on it. I found a hand held metal band saw at a yard sale in Ohio two years ago for $50. I spent too much time wondering if I'd really use it enough. I told the guy I'd be back by there in a few hours,I'd think it over. I stopped in on my way back and he'd sold it. He said the guy who bought it did the same thing. Left for about an hour then came back and bought it. Snooze you loose.

Tap the holes for #4 NC threads and put screws in it. I would not put it on. They are never accurate enough to do accurate work. I always use a metal protractor to set them. Jim

If you have a local hardware store they should have knurled rivets that tap into the holes,there only 3/16 to 1/4 inch long used to put name plates on machinery.
