Anyone have a Milwaukee dry cut saw for steel ?

My buddy wants to pick one of these up for the turbo build we're doing on his camaro, but im not sold on the idea of using a 1500 rpm chop saw on thin stainless tubing

I dont trust the blade to not catch on the material
I dont trust the cheap clamp to hold onto the tubing if it does catch
I dont think $500 for the saw+ 1 blade and $180 for replacement blades is a reasonable price

his reasoning is its not as loud as an abrasive chop saw, wont create dust thats hard to clean up, and wont shoot sparks everyplace

My reasoning is its freakin expensive as heck, and i dont want to be using it and have a blade explode in my face

Discuss.
