You Tube made me do it. I bought a Milwaukee dry cut saw.

Just used my new toy for the first time on the car project cutting strips of sheet for the floor support repair. Probable overkill for the job but what a joy to clamp a straight edge to the steel sheet and just zip off a strip in seconds. Straight edge no burrs.

It is said to be able to cut up to 3/4" steel plate! I can see a lot of uses in the future for it.

A Northern Tool buy.

Very interesting! Can you tell us more? Which u-tube video. How does it work... curious minds want to know!

(Per a Google search on "Milwaukee dry cut saw" leads me to a page on the Milwaukee Tools web page, stating the product is no longer available - similar to the first Northern Tool hit.)

Very cool! and a worthy addition, and at the same time all I can imagine is explaining to SWMBO

"yes dear and not only that, remember when you had all that 3/4" steel plate to be cut? Well now I can do it!"

:yesnod: :whistle: :lol: :banana:

This thing is opening up all sorts of avenues.
I have some 1/2" x 3" flat that I have had for some time. Every time I need to use a piece it was Hack Saw time now I can just wizz a piece off in seconds.
Going to make top plates for my axle stands so they will have a nice surface to go under the TR3 frame.

That seems like a great tool. I never knew such a thing even existed. Now I have a problem...

But I know the situation. Here's what the internet forced me to buy. It's a Miller 211 MIG welder. Runs off 220V or 110V, but it makes good welds in surprisingly thick metal even on 110V. It is largely automated--you set the wire size, metal thickness, and type of gas and weld, and it sets the wire speed and power. It sounds like a cute idea that wouldn't work well, but it actually works quite nicely. After struggling incessantly with my old, cheapo welder, this one is a dream to use.
