    When the company I worked for wanted to get a chop saw they chose me do to the looking. After spending time in the Navy as a BT and later as an outside machinist in the local shipyard I figured i could handle it. The 2 things I was looking for was something that didn’t way a ton and was well built. When I found this Makita I knew it was just what we needed. We cut a lot of 4×4 1/8 tubing, mostly hot rolled and some 1/4×4 flat bar cold roll and this saw handled it with no problem. When it came to cutting aluminum I put on a carbide toothed blade and it ate through that aluminum like it was hot butter. I liked it so much I bought one for my home workshop and after 12 years it’s still going strong. And if you ever get a chance to watch that old Monster Garage or OCC tv shows, guess what ? Yea they use the same saw.If you can not afford a $600 cold saw and / or a $900 horizontal band saw, this is one that deserves your attention.

    Works great. Big tip for everyone, instead of buying the $400-500 dry metal cutting saws (1800 rpms) that use a metal cutting saw blade instead of a grinding blade that comes with this saw, buy a rotor variable speed controller for less than $20 and reduce the speed of this saw (3500rpms) down so it will work with a metal saw blade. Save $ a you have a multi-use saw.

    If you like pea hearted tools buy this saw. My old Makita chop saw stood by me for 20 years. It was a great tool. This rascal was gutless from the get go and went down hill from there. With smoke billowing out of it the other day and throwing the 20 amp breaker I gave it an unceremonious burial in my trash can. At best it was just slightly better than a hacksaw. It lasted a little over a year . I have plenty of Makita tools which I like but this was a total disappointment. I am hoping for better luck with the DeWalt.
