nice videos   but after looking at the specs, their 14" blade is only rated 
for 1800 rpm.  My old chop saw turns over 3000 rpm.

they are higher priced between 150 and 200 bucks but that doesn't mean they 
aren't better blades... time will tell on my Bullet I guess


All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

  Morse makes a similar product called the Metal Devil saw blades.  There 
are a ton of videos of them cutting all kinds of metal (plate, unistrut, 
angle, etc) on their website.

    I don't know if this qualifies as a "tip or trick" or more of a tool

    Back a few months ago a member of the Ford site I frequent  told me 
about a
    dry cut metal saw blade that could replace an abrasive blade in a chop 
    They can handle the chop saw speed. They are made by Bullet Industries. 
    14" model (chop saw size) is about 50 bucks.  I ordered and finally got 
    install tonight.

    clamped in a piece of 2x2x<" angle iron and dropped the blade down.. It
    almost fell thru the metal !!!  If you've used a chop saw you know about
    pressure on the blade and the mess it makes.  Only the lightest pressure 
    needed...just let the blade do the work.  It's like a hot knife thru 
    butter..  The output was very fine chips of metal that pretty much stay
    close to where you're cutting and not floating around in the air and up 
    nose like the abrasive dust.

    I can't say anything about longevity yet, but for speed of cut and ease 
    cut this is the best I've found... check them out below.  If you do a 
lot of
    fabricating and cutting... this really seems like the way to go....
