Having just returned to framing after a 20 year absence, I have decided to try and go it alone at some point in the future. Having looked at equipment until my head was fit to burst, not to mention my wallet, I have several questions. The main one at the moment is what we over this side of the pond call 'chop-saw's.' I used one many years ago, but mainly for mouldings that were to big to cut on the morso. But, i have to be honest, I'm going to have to give the morso a miss due to it's expense and have therefore decided to go with the 'chop saw.' I'm going to sound like a typical Scottish idiot, but what would one look for in a good/ relatively cheap saw? What rpm? And does the dust extraction really work? Do any of you chaps use chop saws, as apposed to the morso? Any advice on setting up cheaply would be much appreciated! thanks, Doug.
