    Tony, NOT being a smart a$$ but WD 40 is sold as liquid too besides the spray. Harbor Freight sells it . http://www.harborfreight.com/wd-40-lubricant-62232.html Only: $22.99 That's a one gallon can.

    I knew that Bob. I had just forgot about that probably because I don't use it often enough to ever buy it. That may change or may stay the same. Thank you for reminding me

    Re: Ironton Dry Cut Saw

    Im not impressed with my ironton yet. Cuts are uglier than abrasive cuts minus the burrs. I wonder if its just the blade... maybe i should get a diablo or morse blade or something...

    Sounds like he done metal work before you were born don't make it right but you used to turn your blades around on circular saws and chop saws to cut aluminum and steel wasn't the best way but it was the only wway and it is heliarc from the get go don't knock your elders they used to weld without crutches

    Im not knocking him. I think its badass he used to do that. He just hasnt done any work in ages. Heliarc is just a brand now. He didnt know what tig was haha he kept talking about metal inert gas too and i told him the proper term now is gmaw...

    Im gonna put my ironton to work today. Hopefully i get better results this time...

    Re: Ironton Dry Cut Saw

    Bust out the wallet. NOTHING cuts like a Makita "dry cut" ? LC 1230......especially if there's a Tenryu stabilizer riding its shaft.
    The Morse saw is close. I have one too. The 12 has less vibration. Simple engineering math there.
    OK My Scotchman cold saw cuts "better" than either but I'm a welder, not a machine shop. I dont need tenths. 64ths are fine

    Re: Ironton Dry Cut Saw

    I have a Dewalt dry cut, the cut capabilities were impressive, but the quality a lot lower than desired. I found the stamped steel base was deflecting too much, and the fence didn't hold true. I tossed the base and mounted the saw to a 5/8" thick plate of steel, about 14" x 20" (A scrap I had), and welded a 3/8" x 4" angle back fence to the base. The added mass and thickness of the base, and rigidity of the welded fence vastly improved the cut quality, and that also increased the blade life by about 3x's. It quit tossing carbide tips.

    One other thang. Get the Morse V-block kit and make it fit. I use triple magnets milled into the back

    Re: Ironton Dry Cut Saw

    man, im very unhappy with my ironton drycut saw, the fence doesnt hold true and gets off progressively as it is used... thumbs down. I'm gonna probably return it and get an evo or morse or maybe makita, only thing is that makita has a small blade....

    no metal inert gas is mig and the modern term is gmaw because most of the time active gasses are added...
    also the lowest ive ever seen a dry cut saw at was 1300 rpm. ive heard of some bigger saws that go real slow but i think fluids are added thus making it a wet cut. i could be wrong on that but not on the other topic of mig.
    what a dumbass.

    I have a 14 Evolution dry cut saw. It is the most used saw in my shop. I use industrial saw blade wax on my aluminum cutting.

    Hey Bonzoo is there any chance you could show a pic or two of how you have the magnets set in the back side of those Morse V-Blocks ? I'd appreciate it kindly.
