Saw for zinc

bev2009May 3, 2012

Just wondered if I could get a little advice from the experts! I have done a few pieces of stained glass at a shop several years ago. Now I am putting together an area in the basement to work myself and need to buy a saw to cut zinc. I want to get by as cheaply as possible. What type of saw should I buy and where is the best place to get it?

Thanks for your help1

I bought a really cheap one at Harbor Freight. It's the 2" Bench Top Cut-Off Saw. It's under $30 and of course, it's cheaply made. Several of us bought it and I'm sure it won't last too long, but a friend whose had a couple of them says that as long as you let the blade spin up to speed before cutting it will last plenty long enough to justify the price.

I hope so!!! That manual mitre saw is AWFUL!
