I need to buy a relatively inexpensive chop saw. I would like one that can do angles. What size blade do you guys recommend? Any one in particular to stay away from? I've been needing to buy one for a while but can't put it off any longer. Gotta get my cage done/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

I got mine new from Cummins Tools http://www.cumminstools.com for $80. It uses a 14" chop saw blade (standard) and I have used the snot out of it.

Check it out at http://www.cumminstools.com/tap/tools/3139.html. It may be cheap, but I've had mine over a year with no problems. I also got the drill press and about $250 more in tools, the only thing I don't like is the 6" bench grinder, it has no power.

lugnut. I have always gotten the same advise when asking anyone about tools.... You get what you pay for. If you are going to use the saw for a long time, get a good one. The extra couple of dollers will pay off in the long run. If you do not see yourself useing it all that often then an inexpencive one would be perfect. Personally I really like craftsman. you can't beat a life time 100% replacement promise. But then again, you get what you pay for. When you finish your cage post some pics.
Good luck

The warranty on Craftsman is only on the hand tools, it does not apply to the electrial tools.

Get what you can afford. On the cheaper ones you may end up replacing saws quicker than blades. Unless you are into production, or have unlimited funds, you probably don't need a Milwaukee or such, but Makita or Dewalt will probably last you just great.
