Metal Cutters

I like Polls...

Okay, which would you rather have?

Plasma
Band saw
Chop saw

Each have their own +/- including cost and ancillary equipment required to operate...

EDIT: General home/shop use for fabrication of raw materials and vehicle modifications.

Plasma
Band saw
4 1/2" angle grinder with a cut off wheel is good too.
I would use a rusty pocket knife before a chop saw anymore.

Im not arguing with you. Im just jumping in on something I dont know or care about!!

I love my plasma but use my Porta band more often for quick cutting.

chop saw is quickest for quick tube cuts
