    I was thinking of a Ellis bandsaw, but everytime I use a cold saw I rethink that idea.

    I cut these aluminum extrusions the other day on a wet saw. It was a better cut then the factory that sells the stuff.

    Blown S10,

    My JET is good if I pay attetion to the vise and don't put too much oomph on the hand wheel. It tends to push the vise out of adjustment if I do that. Fact is, it really don't take much to hold the work piece in the vise. I just tend to retain my Hungarian need to overdo everything!! Cuts 45's good if I let it!

    PS: Any way we can hook up on a shipment of that incredible polish sausage that you guys have back there?

    I Have A Chop Saw And The Cut-off Saw. I Use The Chop Saw The Most. Its Just Quicker And Easier For Me.

    I have a chop saw I hardly ever use. I have a 4 by 6 and a larger bandsaw. The little guy gets the most use. It is just handy to use.

    I have a chop saw and if I had it to do over again I'd get the cold saw. If 45 angles are in your future then a chopsaw will not be the best choice.

    That’s a great idea
    I will start shopping for a 4x6 band saw and then look for the chop saw for the quick cuts

    Hi Roger, I agree with hankj, buy the 4x6. It will do anything you need. I had 2 of them, i sold 1 back to the guy i bought it from for the same money and got to use it for 2 years. The 1 i use now has a 3/4 hp motor and cuts great. I cut 3" solid bar all the time for my lathe projects...Bob

    If all you plan to cut is 2" stock, why burn $900 on a 7 x 12 bandsaw? You can get both the chop saw and a 4 x 6 bandsaw for $500, or either one for $250.

    I need some Advice

    Hi I need some help
    I just got my Dynasty 200 welder and am starting my first project.
    I will be making a Cart for my tank and welder.
    I need to cut the metal and have killed my old band saw.
    I will need to replace it but now I can look at all my options
    Which is best
    1. 7x12 band saw with liquid cooling 900.00
    2. 14” Cut off saw 250.00
    3. 12” dry Cutter with Carbide blade 600.00

    I will be cutting max 2” round and Square Tube and angel iron
    Looks like the 14” cut off saw will do 45-degree cuts both ways.
    Noise and sparks are a concern but price and ease of use will over ride.
    This is for a Garage, which is wired for 220 and 110

    Thanks Roger
Working...
