You beat me to it. I was going to ask the same thing. Do you mount it on the bench or floor?
Is it bigger than a bread box?


'Longer than a bread box?' Um, I don't know, as I've never owned or seen a bread box! :D

But seriously, the saw is around 700mm (just over 2 feet long in freedom increments). I haven't mounted it anywhere at the moment as I'm happy for it to stay portable. I put it on the bench or floor as need be depending on the size of the job t hand.

Blad length is 1440mm which I think is just shy of 57 inches. The blade I'm staring at is marked '1440X13X8.5 TPI Bialfa Cobalt M42'.

Cheers,

"Freedom increments." :lol: reminds me of some post somewhere. Why do Americans use Fahrenheit? Because f is for freedom and the c in Celsius stands for communism. Obviously not true but funny none the less.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

It's at the stage in this household that any time any care needs to be taken with a job, my wife and kids chime in "Carefulling....CARE-full- ing!"

In his early videos it was keep your stick on the ice. He's regressed a little since then.

Nice one Kym! I have the BS-5S from H&F but I found that it is necessary to set it up properly to make straight cuts. The orientation of material to be cut also seems to have an effect on cut quality.

of course "keep your stick on the ice" is the "proper" saying. which ave spins into his own version like all the others. how he manages to remember them all is a feat in itself.
still freakin funny :D

Hey Flo, how's it going?

Mine is cutting nice and accurately at the moment, haven't spent any time tuning just yet. For what I need it's doing fine. I was doing 'pie cuts' in exhaust tubing today and needed very little finishing to have the bends ready to be welded up. Pretty happy.
