Man, I am so sick and tired of using my chop saw. It's messy, stinks, and a general PITA. Until I saw that there are these carbide tipped blades available....hmmm [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Yes, they are mass expensive but if they last as long as they say, they will be much cheaper in the long run. Plus no dealing with the smell, dust, and blade diameter shrinking. Anyone use one before? How do they work???? Here's a link to one of them: http://xml-na.amznxslt.com/onca/xml3...html-pt109.xsl
Ya these kind of blades are awesome. They cut so much faster then the abravsive blades too. The only thing they're not good for is cutting hard materials. Oh and one more thing, they actually cut straight down, not like the other ones the bow out toward the end of the cut.
We have a 10" hand held metal cutting blade on the rescue truck I drive at work. We can cut the entire top off a midsized car, windows and all, in less than 90 seconds with it. Yeah, they work!!! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
Time to start pinching pennies [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I may go check some out this afternoon if I have time. If I get one, I'll let ya'll know how it turns out [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Has anyone used the metal blade on a chop saw with rpm from 3000-5000 when the blade max is 1500 rpm. If you have how long did it last. I use aprox 5 abrasive blades pre month.
I use a milwaukee 14" chop saw 3000 rpm. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
