I have a Bosch electric shear that cuts up to 16 gauge. It still takes out the 1/8 inch strip which can get long and difficult to manage, but it's smooth and fast with minimal vibration. The nibbler

I don't know if there is 1 answer. Are you trying to cut new metal or cut out pieces of car either for replacement or as patch panels? For new metal, flat, round or L/U channel you won't beat a band

John and list: I'm mainly looking at rough cutting of pieces from 18 or 20 gauge sheet metal that typically comes in 4 x 8 foot sheets. I would cut out the rough pattern I want, then trim to my scrib

You ask about anyone with one of these band saws... http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=37151 I bought this one (it looks identical to this one) for $69 about 3 years ago

I have a HF cutoff saw similar to the one listed below (actually maybe the same, I just don't know) and it works fine for most anything I've tried it on. The trick is to use good, brand name bi-metal

$69!? I've never seen them for less than 150 or so. I must not be looking at the right time. Mine's from Enco. Same thing. It needs good quality blades as someone else alredy said. The stand is flims

I have one of these band saws. I've had it for years, and paid about $100 for it from HF. The blade is rather wide so can not cut a tight radius pattern. Also on mine, the entire machine is not quite

I have one like that and have used it to cut a rather complicated repair plate from 1/2" steel. No curves but the 8" X 3" part with a couple offsets came out fine. I just used a grinder for the finis

I have had a Grizzly model for at least 12 years. The only problem I had with it was I walked away from it with the motor running somehow and it ran all night and burned up. No thermal protection in

I use a H.F. metal chop saw (sale price = $49) for right angle cuts. It works fine. I'd save my money for a plasma cutter for the fancy stuff, unless you have other uses for the band saw. Bob --Origi

I have one from Enco also. Like Eric said, the stand is pretty flimsy but it has held up over time (15+ yrs). I like the band saws better than the abrasive chop saws because they are no where near as
