This saw is so good I was convinced it wasn't even cutting the material.

Summary: I used this saw at work for the first time at work last week. I was using it to cut through 3/4" plywood, 1/2" acrylic sheet, and 14 gauge aluminum. The first cut through the plywood stopped quickly because I was convinced I missed the plunge and was riding on the guard.
Summary: I just used this saw to process two 5 foot by 12 foot sheets of aluminum - one of them was 3/8 of an inch thick, the other was 1/2 inch. I left them on the palette they arrived on, one on top of the other and used a piece of squared up wood and clamps to create a rip fence.
Summary: For the money spend Is wort it every pennie! Better than cut with a torch or grinder disc. In the long rung you save time and money. The blades are not cheap but if you compare using vutting discs of a grinder or a torch YOU saveots of money.
Summary: This saw ROCKS. Great for fabrication, especially when a plasma cutter is not available, and the work piece to too big in length for the chop saw. Cut 3/8" plate, 72"X48" down to 36"X24" smoothly and effortlessly. Leaves a very clean burr free edge, minimal sparks and debris flying.
Summary: My experience with this saw is limited since I do so little metal work. When I do, this thing is my friend! As others noted, it cuts cleanly and fast in most metals: Schedule C pipe, sheet metal, siding, even quarter-inch stainless!
Summary: I bought this saw to trim the tin on my new roof installation. It does a great job cutting the tin; but makes a lot of noise from the blade and tin so you have to wear ear protection. It"s a little pricey compared to some of the bargain models; but it is a well made tool.
Summary: At first, saw worked great, but about a year of light use just cutting my aluminum scrap, saw motor lock up and stopped working. for the money spent on this saw and by just cutting aluminum, this saw should last forever!
