    Glad to here you are happy with it, I do like mine. The casters are great too, with all 4 fixed straight I just pick up the front end to turn it or just push/pull where I want to go. How did you end up on price?
    I've found it's always best to cut flat bar laying down, when the blade gets some wear on it it won't cut so straight standing up. Sometimes I will put something under the back of the metal to put it on a small angle. This makes it cut a little faster but keeps it going straight. I don't cut a lot of flat bar with mine since I bought a 50ton Ironworker a month ago. It will shear 1/4 X 12" or 1/2 X 6" in seconds without straining!

      Hi Tim,
      Thanks for your input! I wound up paying $649.00 for it and it is worth every penny. The iron worker sounds great. I have one in the plans for next year but I have to build a new shop first. I'm just about out of room in my shop now.

        Hows the vise in that saw? Do you have any trouble setting it to cut angles, like 45's?

          Hi Frank,
          The vise seems to be great. It's cast like the rest of the saw. I have only cut angles a couple of times. No trouble holding the steel and when I set it to 45 it cut 45. If you e-mail me at [email protected] I will send you some close ups of the saw and it's components. (I still don't know how to post on this site)...

              Thanks Joe,
              What size does it have to be? I seem to remember that it needs to be less then 100kb. Is that right?

                  Bulldog,

                  Thanks for showing an upclose of the saw, I have been thinking of getting one for a while, but hate to buy one until I can get a better look. Does the saw have accurate markings so if you need to cut a 45 or 22.5 degree you can just set the vise, or do you have to mark the piece to be cut and lower the blade to align it.

                  Do you need tools for adjusting it, or can you do it by hand?

                    Well even if the saw was marked, (the saw description says the vice tilts to 45 degrees) most of the cutting I'd be doing might call for a custom angle, but I'd be marking my work piece even to check for the proper 45 degree's.

                    Looks like a heck of a price drop on these! $650!!!

                      Hi guys,
                      Frank the saw is marked pretty well. I'll put on some pics. As far as the change goes you do need tools. I like the clamp very much it holds great.I've used the saw a bunch of times and I can honestly say that I'm very happy with the quality of the saw and the cut that it gives.

                        Been mining the board for info on a band saw and am leaning to the Turn-Pro. Can anyone give an update on thier saws? Timw, Bulldog, are you still happy with the saw after a few months?

                        I'd like to get one before the end of the year. ANy more info would be great. Thanks

                          Wendell,
                          I am in fact very happy with the turn pro saw. I was having a conversation with a person today that said something like you just can't buy anything that is really worth what you pay for it. Well this is one of those things that you buy from a catalog and ya hope the thing just works well. Well I'll tell ya this- this thing works FANTASTIC! It's built like a brick s*^# house and it's a pleasure to operate.
