    Thumbs up Steel Max

    This Saw Is A Steel Cuter It Has A Comparment On The Side That Catches The Slevers Of Steel When Cutting. An The Steel Doesnt Get Hot When Cutting. I Use It On Alum. Too It Is Pretty Handey In The Felid Where You Need A Clean Cut

    Nice saw. First time a salesman demonstrated one, everybody stepped back thinking the teeth would come off. It was an evolution brand. Cut right through a piece of 3/8" plate, nice and smooth

    I use both the saw and the older model drill at work.

    I find the saw works well for thin guage steel up to 1/4" plate when the collector cover is removed. If not, I find the chips pile up very quickly generating friction and heat bogging the saw down. I use rapid tap and machinist's coolant while cutting, it has seemed to keep the blade in good shape for quite some time now.
    The drill works very well although I wish it had tapping functions. It's the only mag drill annular cutter system that I've used that has its own lube feed. I like the fact that the drill has a safety device in it so that if there isn't enough magnetic grip the drill switch automatically shuts off. I've used it to mill slots 11/16" wide (using the bit like a router, the drill stationary, and material sliding in a jig) into 5/8" X 2" cold rolled steel. After attempting this totally incorrect use of the machine, the annular cutter and machine were in perfect condidtion. I'll try to post pics. It bores good quallity holes up to 2 3/8" by 2" deep.

    The auto lube system is really nice.The new model also lets you select two different speeds which is real helpful on the bigger holes.Just used it today to drill some 1 7/8 holes in 1 1/2 with no problems.Will have to try and set the drill up by the holes and post a picture of it.

    SteelMax as been at the Air Liquide tent shows over here in Hawaii for 3 (I think) years now. bought the chop saw last month and LOVE IT!!! Came with an extra blade for steel. He said I could cut a little alum with it, but if I did a lot, I should buy the alum blade (more teeth).
