    Took a chance from an off-shore supplier from you-know-where, (the Carribean, LOL). Let's see if this gambling/risk taking pays off. If not, who cares, it's just money.

      If my practice goes well, I might make a few hot-rod backyard projects from it. Only time will tell.

      As for the quantity (10kg/22lbs), since it was being shipped on a boat from the Carribean (LOL), shipping wasn't exactly cheap, and obviously the more you buy the less you pay per pound, so I took a plunge (gamble, lol). Time (and practice welds) will tell if it pays off.

                Hard to tell because I'm a newbie at adjusting the hydraulic down-feed, so I kept messing with it. I'd say maybe 2m:30s. Perhaps closer to 3min. On second thought, I suck at telling time. It was likely around 4min, lol.

                    Doesn't Matter. That was with the blade the saw came with. I had done previous cuts that took at least twice as long. I have the good Lenox blade still in a box.
