Funny thing

Today I just picked up an Evolution Rage steel 2 15inch chop saw. I could not find this saw on there web site for some reason. I called and found this model is upgraded with better bearings and some other stuff. The blade is for metal cutting unlike the Rage 2 chop saw that cuts all materials and is smaller. I needed something for cutting .090 wall pipe for my race car. I have a plasma cutter but it usless for accurate cutting of pipe. Here is a link to a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz9fd...yer_detailpage. The reason I went with this over a band saw was it's more portable and takes up less room. It also cuts cool and for the most part quicker than a band saw. It's also priced the same or alittle cheaper at $400.00. I'll let you know how it works out.

i was using a chop saw from HF for a while, was messy, loud, and sparky . Bought a band saw from a guy off craigslist for 50 bucks similar looking to this one a little more beef and was made a few years ago, but they look the same and i love it. I prefer this thing over the chop saw. I don't know what blade came with it but I know it cuts paper thin and can cut paper thin slices. I made shims that were thinner or as thin as the blade with hardly any burrs. I have cut thru 3/16"x 4" wide hardened steel and 1" sch 40 pipe like butter using its own weight. i have not used the chopper since i got this thing. But that chop saw is looking mighty fine though
