    I use a vertical do-all bandsaw, I got it for about $300 at a machinery sale. IMO, the easiest way to do this stuff, if you need to make a long merge for a y pipe, or collector, it's easy as can be, fast and accurate. I would look into it.

    [QUOTE=killdozerd11;269209]I have the Rage 3 and have cut a lot of 2X2X1/4 and .120 wall with it it works great

    Bout i have not done any SS with it[/QUOTE

    stainless steel feed and speed rate for cutting is very close to mild steel but keep inmind if you start to see the chips turning blue you are headed for trouble or you can just use a abraisive cut off wheel and not worry about it at all

    Anyone tried converting a dry cut to a cold cut by adding a pump, coolant and tray setup?I used to use a band saw to cut all my stainless stuff, now I use a chop saw. I have been eyeing a dry cut for some time now. I also have plans on converting a portaband to a vertical mini band saw for the smaller stuff.

    I've been using wax on my rage3. I rub the wax stick against the side of the blade to give it a fair coating. As the blade warms up the wax gets slung out to the teeth. Seems to help, but I think liquid coolant would be better. I haven't tried liquid since I don't want to make too big of a mess in the shop.

    Default Cutting stainless steel pipes

    I would recommend my friend to either buy a band saw or a cold/dry cut, but I would like to first get a confirmation that it is ok to use Stainless Steel on a cold/dry cut...

    Ellis makes a pretty good one for cutting structural steel, ie; tubing, especially thin walled stuff. I usually cut 16 gauge stainless, the blades typically last 2+ months before needing replacement. I picked this one up earlier this year. New, they're $3500+ I guess, I got mine a lot cheaper since it was used. I had thought about getting a wet saw, but there's a lot of cleanup after cutting, plus having coolant all over my garage wasn't something I really wanted to deal with.

    This is a genuine procedure that we can implement. There is also one option for cutting a stainless steel using a lathe machine. It is simple and no risk.

    Cutting straight tubing on a lathe is fine, but most of what I work with is either thin wall structurals or mandrel bent tube, so that's not really an option.
