    If you are using a miter saw do you have a way to clamp the stock down? I use a sliding compound miter saw for cutting aluminum and it works great but I would feel a lot better having a postive clamping mechanism.

    Re: Metal Cutting Chop Saw vs Abrasive Chop Saw

    Well , I can share my hubby's experience here. His first saw was a Dewalt chop saw . It functioned admirably enough but the accuracy of the cut and sparks was not so cool to him ever. He had a cutting blade expode one time and he chose to change it with a Makita LC1230 saw .
