    We seem to have been discussing these saws in multiple boards. Maybe its time to have of its own.

    Here is a short basic demo that i hope answers a few questions for some of you. Sorry I didnt have any unistrut to demo but if the galvanized pipe cutting should do

    @crotalusco man Daniel great little video, you can tell how comfortable you are with tools, just the way you handled all those tasks.

    I have to say that new saw cuts like butter,
    After seeing that Bosch cordless cut those pieces, I want one.
    It went through so easily. Thank you Daniel for the time and video.

    do not need blade guard for arm holding the saw. Some pieces do come out the front so bare flesh in front of the saw will get some sting. I have always been ok with short sleeves and safety glasses.

    The blade that came with the skilsaw worm is a diablo demon steel blade

    That’s good to know. some years back when we were leading the country in steel home production Tenryu let me R&D there steel pro blades. Each monday I’d cut the rafter for the 10 homes that would be stacked that week. With the regular skil saw I’d need full arm and face shield on to protect me.

    The only time i really get the sting is when i hang studs for soffit/bulkheads and use the saw to cut them to height using my left hand as counter force. A little sting and little burn marks, just like you might get with an abrasive saws. The blade in the bosch cordless right now is a couple week old tenryu

    Daniel,
    ThanX for the video.
    It looks like the SKIL has no problems going through anything you put in front of it.

    Thanks for the video crotalusco. The new Skill looks like a great saw. The little 18v Bosch has my interest as of right now.

    The bosch cordless is great for all day light gauge. Without a doubt the bosch cordless is the best on the market, It is just faster than the others. I have cut up to 12ga with it, However its not the best choice for all day cutting. The Milwaukee one will cut brick lintels 1/4″ if you take it easy and let the saw do the work. The skilsaw has more power without question. I can feel that just by turning it on. I cannot wait to get it on a good job and give it a proper workout

    Thanks for uploading that video daniel.
    The CSM180 goes thru the material very smooth. Looks like a tiny powerful saw.
    the skilsaw just tops it off.

    I’ve been using my Makita for a year or 2 before the bosch came out. I have not upgraded to the brushless model yet. I have cut 5/16 steel with it.

    I have not had as varied amount of brands to compare mine with but to date my Bosch metal cutting saw has exceeded my expectations when cutting metal.

    I’ve only ever used the old fashion abrasive wheels to cut metal, Man oh man I’m definitely going to get into these metal cutting blades. It appears like they don’t even leave a burr

    I’ve got a little job coming up that I’ll need to cut some 12gauge galvanized sheet metal, Looks like that little cordless Bosch is just what I need.

    Or,
    Is it possible to put a metal cutting blade on a regular circular saw? Perhaps there would be an RPM issue? Good or bad idea?

    oh wow that is impressive, do you need to do any edge clean up afterwards? I wonder what the max thickness it can handle.

    Great video, I’m really glad that you were able to show the little Bosch along to the others. Looks like something else I will have to add to my tool collection.

    @Dabbs,
    RPM would be one thing to be cautious about and the metal saw would have a more enclosed motor to protect from the metal dust.

    One of these new blades on the 14″ abrasive would be awesome.

    Yes it will work fine.

    No it would not!! Completely different saw

    maybe I am wrong but isn’t torque important too when cutting metal, not just speed? thats why skilsaw choose a worm drive saw?

    That’s a great vid and demo Daniel, thanks for posting. It really gives a clear look at how much difference there is in cutting speed between the 3. Looking at the new metal saws lately has me wishing that I cut more metal and actually needed one, they look great.
