Default 16" abrasive chop saw gets its toughest test yet

I recently resurrected an old 16" abrasive chop saw with a 7.5 hp motor. Today I
had to make a bunch of 45 cuts on 4x1" steel channel, pretty stout stuff, and
the chop saw was - barely - tough enough. Lot of steel to get through. It's
amazing how easy it is to stall a 7.5hp motor with an abrasive blade. The guy I
was cutting parts for was amazed and delighted at how fast and clean the cuts
were. I used to own a 14" abrasive chop saw and there is no comparison whatever,
a bigger saw wins hands down.

Great. I did warn you that it's almost impossible to have enough HP
on one of those. :-)
