Turning an old chop saw into a cold-cut saw?


Recommended Posts

I see ... yes, rigid is the word.

This contraption is all cast and has a worm gear to go from 1400 rpm down to 40. Very useful to cut nice and square, different angles and repeat cuts length etc. I have to redo the stand however. At the moment it is mounted on a wooden benchtop and the vibrations shake the whole bench and amplify the noise. On a sturdy metal stand it should be almost silent. 

I am thinking in a vertical bandsaw with a  twist in the blade to overcome the throat limitation and a sliding table as a nice addition. Will have to make the sliding table myself though, never seen one offered.
