I got tired of the miter saw turning metal into scrap and dust. So today I made a trip to Northern Tool and picked up a dry saw http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200326857_200326857 . This think is great. The price in the store was less than their web site.
I got some cutting done today, but not as much as I was hoping. Next it will be time to play with the welder and start tacking everything together.
