Re: Cutting aluminum with miter saw
- Looks like a good little 4" bench top unit if space is a concern.
The only comment, i have one of those Asian Homier 6" floor
Horiz.bandsaws which cost a lot less than that price though i bought it
a bunch of years ago. There are times when even the 6" capacity is not
enough like for cutting steel plate, etc.

cut with patience at reasonable depths and you'll be a believer.
