Default Gotta show off my new toy

I picked this up off a cool guy just south of Wyoming last night and spent all day today getting it running. It was made in W. Germany back in 85 but sounds like it just came out of the factory. If you don't know what a cold saw is think mitre saw for steel. It can cut perfect bevels in a fraction of the time a horizonal bandsaw takes to give you a rough cut.

My first test cut was on a 1.5" diameter alloy steel bar that took under 5 seconds and left a perfectly square end that was cool to the touch. Capacity on this one is 5 or so inches of steel.

Looks like a mitre saw blade, but it's like 14" diameter, made from solid carbide, and has fine teeth. It rotates at 50 or so RPM. Also is bathed with coolant. I first saw one of these at my local steel mill, but this one is nicer. The manufacturer is considered the best cold saw makers anywhere.

Although I am a custom woodworker, I sometimes stop by a couple of used machinery warehouses in the Cincinnati area just to browse. Lots of crazy old iron in that city. I would love to add a few thousand sf onto my shop as a metals shop at some point.

A lot of great iron came out of that part of the country back in the day. It's so sad we don't build any machinery here anymore.

Guess you have to have one of those to cut the raw stock to make gun barrels from . What else do you use it for? And when are you going to get that 40 in the background put back together?
