Not a bad little saw, but the blade it comes with, while OK on acrylic tubing, isn't that great, and didn't fare well after cutting a piece of aluminum channel.

Ending up buying a new and much better quality blade than it came with, . . . (also tried to find a 2" diamond blade to work with glass tubing, but none in that small size . .)

so now the acrylic cuts are even nicer . . . and . .

I bought a proper miter saw and blade at Home Depot for cutting aluminum . . . wise decision on my part for a change . . .

Made fabricating the drop in infinity panel for my X 9 build a whole lot easier.

that was one of the saws i was looking at, just bought it along with the blade you linked. Thanks.

that was one of the saws i was looking at, just bought it along with the blade you linked. Thanks.


When I got mine, the blade was not very tight, and would slip and stop spinning during a cut . . .

Took me a few minutes to figure out how to hold the shaft to be able to tighten it. . . . probably shows you in the directions, but first use was a long time after purchase, so I was on my own.

Below is a few pics to make it easy for everyone to see what you have to know to change/tighten the blade.


Here's the release clip to remove the blade guard and the hole to insert a shaft lock into outlined, . . . a small drill works fine to lock the shaft, just rotate the shaft until the drill finds the hole in it. . . Lift up on the lock tab and slide the guard upwards.





Here's the guard removed and the little notch that clips on a ridge is outlined:




Here's the ridge mentioned above outlined and a small drill inserted thru the shaft lock hole to tighten or change a blade:




You do not need to take it apart to remove the guard or service the blade . . . .

I just did it so I could take the pics.


Hope that helps at least someone . . .

Just got my DrillMaster on Wednesday. Opened up the box and have to say that the cost of shipping could have been less. The box was nearly 2 feet in length for an item whose box is in the 12" range. No biggie really since it was well packed with poly bubble bags from end to end, but for the cost from L.A. to Washington they coulda kept the shipping down by offering Flat Rate shipping in a smaller box and I would've got it in 2-3 days instead of a week. Bad form on Harbor Freight's part but meh, with the 20% off code shipping was nothing. So I guess I've a bit of a complainer streak in me. biggrin.gif lol

Okay now my review of sorts of the product.

Reasonably sturdy construction. The base though seems to have some wear for an unused item. So maybe I got one of those "use and return" units. Dunno. Just know that all points of wear are at the mounting points where one would use washers and bolts and seem to be consistent with that. A brand new unused item should have none of this. The safety brake is fine however. Just push the button and the saw moves freely on its axis. There was zero damage to the housing of the saw and has a rubber coating feel which is nice. The blade is straight and I have yet to use it, so won't know(until it sees use) for sure.

Okay, now one thing I have not seen anyone touch on...

Depth of cut. For people who use this for smaller diameter tubing, you're going to get a good clean cut. As someone said earlier... LIKE BUTTA thumb.gif

So for me and future builds where I am cutting 3/8" pipe straight through the first shot. But on 5/8" tubing you're only going to get through 2/3 of the tube before the saw bottoming out on the tube. I'm sure that with some modification I could possibly remedy this in short order with my Dremel. Won't know til I get a better look under the housing where it bulges. It could be that I won't be able to modify the housing to sit with a slight gap around the tubing. I know it doesn't seem like that big a deal, but if you have a tight angle to work around this can be quite irritating. Because while you can simply rotate the tubing to complete the cut, if you have a tight angle it's not possible. No way no how, because your bend will act as a brake. Rotate up and you run into the bottom of the saw. Rotate down and you bottom out on the base of it. I'm thinking the workaround is start your cut at the highest point of the angle, then adjust the tubing to the lowest point and attempt to finish the cut. Won't know until I get a multi directional plane tube on this. But this is kind of a niggly point with my mechanical brain. It's a limitation of sorts and maybe I am overthinking this but thought y'all would like to know. I'm just glad I don't have 3/4" tubing. Although not much larger than 5/8" I know. thinking.gif

Soon as I can get ahold of my phone and a reasonable workspace I will cobble together a proper Video Review. Til then this is my initial impression of the DrillMaster 120v 2" BenchTop cuttof saw. Item #62136.

Ok how come ekwb doesn't specify to chamfer the inside diameter and the outer or just the outer. To me arms like just the outer diameter needs a chamfer am I right. Which is preferred?please help anyone asap
post #4195 of 4322

@futiless chamfer inner and outer diameter. I chamfer off approx 0.5mm for my EK hdc fittings

How do you go about bending a really long piece of tubing? Do they make silicone cords that would fit a 36" piece of tubing with multiple bends?

You can get cord from PPCs' in various lengths.

Hello

To properly cut the acrylic tubes, it's better to use this or that ?

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95


And to make beautiful bend (short distance, such as the CPU => MOS), it is better to use this or that ?




I tried with the "Monsoon" and it's pretty hard to make beautiful bend on a small distance (curve in U)

Thanks for your help

Depending on the thickness of the tube, I suggest the power mini miter saw. If it's 3/8" or 12mm OD then it will work well. It can still work well for 5/8" or 16mm but the saw needs some minor modding to get a clean through cut otherwise it can still be cut by slightly rotating the tube in the vice that is mounted to the table.

My Uncle passed away last week and I inherited a nifty little gadget. It's a Stanley Small tubing clamp that is able to be clamped to my table. So I can mount that to the Right side of my saw and make all my cuts without issue. The deck height is adjustable as well as the size of the tubing to be held in place. thumb.gif

I tried to find a picture of the clamp online and Google had nothing so I will post a couple pics when I can get hold of my Phone. The wife has it. rolleyes.gif
