Hi, just wanted to get some thoughts on the downside to using a metal blade made by Freud, called the Diablo Steel Demon. It is a cold cut blade and is run a less than 1800 rpm. It produces less sparks and apparently very little heat. I wanted to avoid buying a metal chop saw and taking up more space in the shop as well as the kapex would definately be more precise when making angled cuts. Thanks for your time and thoughts.


Here is a youtube video with a little more info on it.

I have the chop saw shown in the video above. It takes a beating. No way would I want to abuse my SCMS like I do the 14" cut off saw.

Aluminum I will cut with my SCMS using a negative hook blade.
