In Reply to: Cut off saw? posted by Lazy WP on October 24, 2013 at 06:11:24:
I have 2 carbide cold saws, a hand held 8" Milwaukee and a 10" miter saw type unit and use both of them a lot. there is a learning curve to using them. Slow even feed no matter if cutting thin or thick sections is a must. Quick or slam feeding will result in quickly ruined blades. Even when correctly operated the cost per cut is higher than other methods but very quick and as you said clean and cold, major considerations when you want to go right on to the next step in the fabrication. Your cheapest cost per cut will come from the best blades you can buy. We are using a Japanese blade, name escapes me. The saws are their best for hot rolled bar, shapes and sheet. If only one cutting method is going to be employed in the shop they would not be my first choice. I also have a band saw and of course torches. I dont and wont own an abrasive saw. Been there, done that and sold that.
