I bought a machine similar to that years ago when I had to cut a bunch of pieces of 1" sq. CRS and all I had was a manual hacksaw.
After working up a sweat on the first piece I said "The heck with this!" and bought a used (like new condition) saw for a really good price.
The saw cut the material in no time at all (I think it took about 1/50th the time it took me manually) while I worked on something else.
One thing about my saw- it is an import, and the casting wasn't relieved enough to tension the blade fully so when in use the blade would slip off the wheel.
The guy I bought it from thought he was ripping me off (that the saw was no good) so I got it for about 20% new price and it hadn't been used at all due to the problem.
I got it home, ground a slight bit more relief with an angle grinder (2 min.) and the saw works perfectly!
