I'm just a hobby guy that likes to fabricate.

I've never run coolant, the saw came with it but I don't need that mess.

I run the second fastest pulley and control the cut with the down feed.

I think I'm on my 3rd blade. The first 2 taught me to loosen the belt.

I bought the saw at least 5 years ago (Enco $450. free shipping) and have cut tons of steel with it.

This saw is fine for my needs, I don't need anything fancier.
