A few weeks back, I got a really nice little cut-off/chop saw from Tractor Supply. It was the last one from the Black Friday stuff. It was supposedly a $60.00 saw (priced $59.95) and they had marked it down to $39.95. That was still more than I wanted to pay; oh, it was the Tractor Supply brand. So I got a manager and and asked her about the saw. She could not find it in inventory and told me that I could have it for $10.00. I thank her and got my new toy.

The saw is a Jobsmart six inch abrasive disc saw. It has a clamp for holding the object to be cut. It is not a heavy duty saw by any means but should be nice for cutting most things I would handle around the house. As long as one recognises the limitations of the tool and treat it accordingly, it should last; that goes for any tool. Better than using my angle grinder as I have done.

I got tired of cutting metal with a hack saw, so I picked up a 14" chop saw. Works great. Me happy.

Oh yes ramps are amazing. I have a cheap set from Menards that I now love for oil changes. Saves a lot of hassle.
