Summary: It works well or better than trying a cut a peice of square tubing straight with a angle grinder. I bought this machine because I am a hobby metal worker. I used it to so far to cut up to 5/8" bar at an angle and 3/4" bar at 90 degrees and the heaviest tubing I have cut with it would be 1.5"X3.0" with 3/16" wall.
Summary: This is an outstanding heavy duty chop saw. I use it daily and appreciate all its features, like the quick change keyless blade change system, and the tool-free adjustable fence. The quick-lock vice improves my productivity by allowing me to fast clamp stock. The lock-down pin allows me to fold down the blade casing and easily move the saw around the shop. This tool works all day without overheating. It is truly a heavy duty metal saw.
