Summary: I like this cutter quite a bit. I have been working with it for about 6 mths and it hasn't lost a step yet. The blades last quite a bit longer than most on the metal cuts and it has low spark, which is a nice bonus. As simple as it is, it is a bonus to have the durable carrying case as well.
Summary: I bought this as an alternative to a band saw on pipes, but suddenly realized the applications were much greater. My brain takes a while to kick in, but when I realized I could cut metal sheets with this, it became a favorite of mine. My artist buddy is about to buy one too for his art work! Very nice cutting.
