    I was trying to picture a carbide blade because just the thought of it scared the **** out of me. The diamond looks intriguing. I might give that a try next time I need to buy blades. I've still got dozens ready to burn up though.

    And yeah, don't just change blades into a saw that wasn't designed for them. RPM's are a big part of the design.
    I think they are diamond edged carbide blades or maybe just regular diamond edged steel.
    if there's a welder, there's a way

      Read the first post under the video. Same as all the other reviews I have read about the "metal blades for your wood saw" claims...

      Nothing like a cold saw with a carbide blade. They are designed to cut metal all around. Blade, saw, rotational speed etc.

      Just think about something if carbide in metal scares you....what's the best end mill you can put in your Bridgeport? Carbide of course, it's all about speed and feed

        You took me out of context. I was specifically addressing what appeared to me to be a mention of a carbide-toothed blade in an angle grinder; no other fears were intimated. I cut steel with both carbide-toothed and abrasive saws every day, in their respectively correct machines.

          I did take that out of context.

          I had a customer come by and cut a small piece of body panel out of a wrecked car we were salvaging parts from. He had one of those - just realized now it wasn't a typical tile/stone diamond blade. It seemed to go slower than an abrasive, but stunk just as bad (he was several feet away while I was working on something else). You know that "metal" taste from the dust, well it was the same from the diamond. Seems like staying the same size would be a nice feature, though.
