    Cut Off Machines

    Hi; Anyones experience's with the 12" or 14" cut off machines; Is 14" too big. heavy; to hold? looking at Dewalt; Bosch', or Milwawkee Cheapest at Mytoolstore 503$ Another thing Isee Bosh & dewalt can have a choice of rotation direction , Which would be best? My 9" angle grinders have always spun the sparks backwards and I think would pull into the metal better. Appreciate any comments. Joe,

    Go to Medfordpowertools.com and check out their Evolution metal saws. All of their stuff is outstanding, especially the manual benders!

    Let us know what you decide on !

    Hi, Thanks for conection's I was thinking about the Milwakee 14" hand held grinder; wondered if that would be to much thrust to hold? Thanks Joe.
