Excerpt: Saw does not cut metal as advertised, blade was ruined after cutting 15 pieces of 3/16 x 1/2" 304 stainless. I have been waiting 2 weeks for an RMA # to return saw, save yourself the trouble. I own 30+ Dewalt tools in my fabrication business and after this experience I will never buy another.

Summary: I wish I had listened to others and bought this saw years ago. It takes less than half the time to cut than my abrasive saw.
