    I don't know if it's a repost, but it looks VERY cool.

    No sparks, no hot shavings, NO DUST!

    I have used one of those on a chop saw designed for it. It's actually pretty scary. Cut's SUPER clean, but if you get a body part in there, you're gonna lose it.

    Looks pretty cool for cutting plate and stuff, would be hard to make curves or thing like that.
    One thing im wondering is how loud it is??? Seems like metal on metal would be LOUD!! :crazy:

    Yep, chop saw version, not sure of the brand though. Saw one in action at a friends shop last year. Very cool, but the price is 2x the price of the saw :doah:

    what grinder do you have? they make em down to 5 3/8" but the 6 1/4" will have the right arbor

    you'd endup with something like this Twin cutterbut not quite as cool

    They do make chop saw versions...Dewalt makes one I know. I'm sure some of the other makers do too. Quite spendy though. Link to DeWalts website.

    Found them on Ebay anywhere from $370-$440. The local airgas place has a small selection of steel, and use one of these to cut steel for customers. The only thing I've ever purchased from them that needed to be cut was some 2.5x3/8 flat bar. The thing ripped through it in less than 5 seconds with no sparks and no giant burs like an abrasive wheel leaves. if I could afford one, I'd have one in a heartbeat. I hate my cheap abrasive saw with a passion....Frustates me everytime I have to use it. As far as blade life, the Airgas guys tell me that they usually get about 6 months out of a blade. Awesome tool as far as I'm concerned.

    can the blades be resharpened? $200-300 is a healthy amount of cash. Even if it cost $50 to sharpen it'd be worth it...

    Does the blade wander in the cut? I get aggravated that I wil cut for a fit and have a less than 90 degree cut. It also states the heat is transferred to the piece being cut off, how can it do it to one side of the cut and not the other?

    We sell a version of this at my work. The chop saw that was mentioned earlier was most likely a Milwaukee. Model number is 6190-20. As seen here:

    http://www.milwaukeeconnect.com/web...d=189330&mainCategoryId=362&parentProd=281131

    The circ saw version is model 6370-21, and is seen here:

    http://www.milwaukeeconnect.com/web...d=189345&mainCategoryId=362&parentProd=281173


    Replacement blades for the 8in are 48-40-4515 (42 tooth)
    48-40-4520 (50 tooth)

    Replacement for the 14 in is 48-40-4510 (90 tooth)



    Costs (in CAD) for cash sale from my company (I can get for cheaper)

    14 in machine: $880.92 (649.99)
    8 in circ saw: $576.63 (420.50)

    8 in rep blade 42 tooth: $95.28 (63.21)
    8 in rep blade 50 tooth: $106.01 (70.33)
    14 in rep blade 90 tooth: $314.09 ($216.51)

    The machines are specially designed to work with these blades, they are low RPM (the circ saw is about half of normal 7 1/4 in circ's), high torque motors. I used the circ saw to cut out my 3/16" steel floor for my K5. It took me about 45 minutes to measure and cut. I didn't have to buy it, cause I "demo-ed" it from the Milwaukee rep ;)

    The blades have carbide tipped teeth, which is what stops sparks and allows it to cut cool. It really leaves a nice finish, but as was mentioned, enough torque and ripping power to leave you limbless if you're careless.

    It will cut through 1/4 steel all day long. Any thicker and you have to run it a certain distance, and then let it cool, either sitting or run it with no load for 1 minute.

    Great product, it works amazing. If anyone wants more information, just post here.

    Can you reveal what kind of alloy(s) the blade is made of ? Or is this top secret ? :D

    My goof, sorry, I said Carbide Tipped teeth in my prev post, they are actually ceramic tipped teeth (they call it cermet, probably some ceramic "alloy" that allows it to bond easily to the body of the blade). As to the rest of the blade, the milwaukee site just says that it is a "hardened" steel.
