PORTER-CABLE Chop Saw (Lightweight and compact)
This heavy-duty crosscut saw is made of a sturdy steel base, but don’t let its construction fool you, it’s lightweight and compact, making it ideal for transport and storage. It features a quick-release clamp that holds the workpiece in place while cutting, as well as a spindle lock for efficient blade changes.
Cutting never has to stop with this portable blade. It’s made of durable materials and has built-in safety features for worry-free cutting and removal. What we liked most about the Porter-Cable was the straightforward setup. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a chop saw at a good price that can stand up to a hard workload. It definitely has some power and had no problems cutting through iron, steel and some other metals surprisingly well. Some minor issues we found were that the spark deflector could have worked a little better, and the blade shield can get loose, although it can be tightened easily.
