I've read on here a few times that people rarely use their chop saw when they got a horizontal band saw.
I've used a horizontal band saw before at a previous job. I like the ability to turn on the saw, and let it cut while I go and do something else...
I've never used a chop saw, but I've seen them used. It looks like they cut through things pretty quick.
Aside from those differences, is there anything the Chop saw CAN do that the horizontal band saw CAN'T do?
And vice versa...
In the name of saving space and cash, if the tools both get the job done, no point in buying both.
I'm leaning towards the horizontal... I'm not doing mass production, so speedily tearing through hundreds of pieces of angle iron or anything is not critical to me.
