    You don't come along as someone who goes for cheaper tools .

    I have the 12" Makita LC1230, it's a good saw, recommended by most people on this thread. I have no experience with this, but I heard that the smaller the blade diameter, the less it wobbles and thus you end up with more accurate cuts.

    Do you have any more pics and description of your swiveling setup? I'm in the process of coming up with something like this for my 14" Morse. I'd like to lose the factory clamp, add some heavy angle iron to my conveyor top to clamp to, and then make a swivel locking base with the angles etched into the plate.

    I used a boat swivel seat base from Amazon. Sorry I couldn’t find the link but there’re about $20.

    I made a couple for my horizontal bandsaws also. For your dry cut saw you really should add an extra clamp to hold your work as your vise jaws are now further from the point where the blade engages the cut. (Especially for thinner material which will flex)

    Blade life goes down the drain when the work isn’t secure.

    Want to replace the "sliding" jaw completely... just haven't sat down to figure it out. As in what to replace it with... jaw holds fine but it takes forever to screw it in and out. But I do have time.

    It doesn’t have a half nut for quick adjust?

    No it doesn't... it's the Evolution Rage 2... love the saw other than that one feature.

    I feel your pain. I bought this Makita 14” abrasive chop saw new almost 40 years ago. No quick adjust either.







    Put in more time screwing on this one machine than any girlfriend.

    If you have the version 1 Rage2 saw with the cast iron base you can add the quick clamp vise from the EVO380 saw. It bolts right up. I ordered mine from Evolution for 19.99.

    If that’s the case it would seem to be a good option for twenty bucks!

    Another happy Makita 1230 owner. I am running Freud blades and I really like them for cut speed, quality, and longevity.

    Re: Dry cut saws recommendations

    I'm curious why the dry chop saw and not a band saw. To me the noise and worse the dust are too bad with the abrasive blade.

    Re: Dry cut saws recommendations

    I can't answer for anyone but me... 1 it is faster for straight cut that are repeatable. 2 it is faster for those cuts. 3 because of my limited space I can't afford the footprint of a large bandsaw. I have a portaband and table that I can use for "decorative" cuts but for me it is the best choice.

    This is a DRYCUT saw not the abrasive saw... yes I have chips but a simple tray and backstop help eliminate them. Not much dust and the noise isn't much worse than my circular saw cutting plywood.

    Rage 2 Evolution... cuts square. Made a 45 jig for it. Zero complaints on the cuts. Just the lack of quick adjustment on the clamping.

    Re: Dry cut saws recommendations

    After much reading, I ended up getting the Trajan Q1400. I used it yesterday for the first time. The thing is a beast. It is heavy and has a heavy-duty base. I set the guide to 45° and it was spot on. I was cutting 1/16 inch 1" square tubing. two pieces stacked. It cut through like butter. The cutting guide is cast iron. More expensive than the others, but I'm happy

    When I go to their website it doesn't show that saw, where did you buy this?
