    Got one of these for my shop and its a bad dude.. Cut a 6 inch hydrolic cylinder shaft like butter, with little to no bur and cuts aluminum with no problem.

    plus no fluid running everywhere and its cheaper.

    DEWALT DW872 : 14" (355mm) Multi-Cutter Saw

    We had a JET drill press (biggun) that was sweet...good product. Our metal muncher was a Clausing....very nice for the price. The cold saw we had spent hundreds of hours cutting pipe....and for the life of me I cannot remember the brand. The bankruptcy was October and since I'm not longer there 25 hours a week I put a lot of those details out of my mind.

    Ooooo I remember...Scotchman. Nice peice....took a beating for a Looooong time.

    Allen, his shop stuff is scheduled to be auctioned soon. Might be worth the effort. It's in a town of 4000 people so the bids might be low.

    FWIT there are a lot of other machines in the auction too....for anyone that wants stuff like MIG's, notchers, spot welders, a stand in paint booth, a press brake, etc.....

    x2 on the dewalt 872 chopsaw with metal blade, thats what i have and use if all the time. The steel blade i have doesn't like a ton of stainless though. They do have stainless and aluminum blades for em. DO NOT get one from Harbor freight. some HF stuff is good for the weekend warrior but not in production use.

    I kind of like the sound of this one.

    Anyone know of a bead roller that's good? I need to put beads or dimples on the end of aluminum tubing so the hoses don't slide off

    thanks guys, all opinions are welcome, I want to hear worst and best cases.
