    I plan to use it for some intricate cuts we need to do on a tile job and then maybe some fraggin!!!!!

    Nice! I was looking into this a while back when Gresh brought it up. It's definitely a nice looking saw. Probably far more superior for fragging than the Inland band saw. But, I wonder how it will put up with salt water? I didn't see anywhere in the description that it's corrosion proof so I am a bit iffy on getting one.
     
  3. Looks nice! I think the throat height would limit what you could cut with it though. I think the throat height on the Inland band saw is 3".

    How about this?

    As far as the ring saw goes, I like the fact it can cut in any direction and in tight curves and in any direction.
    I plan to rinse it with fresh water.
    Throat height not an issue for me.
    Most of my fraggin will be on small stuff.
    If I need to cut big stuff I have a 10" diamond tile saw for that.

    Looks great, John! Deep throat but looks a little shallow in material thickness that can be cut. It looks like it will be easy to control very precise scrolling cuts. You know my motto: A saw in every household. Nice haul!

    Didn't see a price, how much did tha cost? Been thinking of getting the inland saw, especially since I just split a symphyllia down the middle when I tried to trim some dead skeleton off. Can't ever tell when it's going to fracture...

    I wouldn't mind checking it out at the swap as well, trying to figure out what to buy.

    That looks nice, I can see where it would be nice to have the extra control on cuts.
