what thickness material are you cutting with it? Im doing 16-18 gauge exhaust tubing. I tried it out on steel, but the plan is to use stainless for the build we are doing.

I've only cut up to about 1/2" material with it-mostly I cut between 18 gauge and 3/16"-you shouldn't have any problems with Stainless-

It's not the Tool for the everyday fabricator. I realize it does cost more than an Abrasive Wheel, but I really hate the sparks that an Abrasive Wheel makes, and I appreciate the finish I get.

Again, the new Milwaukee comes with a cast iron base, so I think if I were doing it again I'd look really hard at it-
