Drop Saw

Easy Cutting of Angle, Tubular and Pipe Material

A drop saw as shown in Figure 1 uses a thin abrasive, which rotates at high speed on tp the material. The material with comparatively thin walls, such as an angle or pipe material made from steel, can be cut very quickly and easily. But please be careful of sparks that are generated during cutting (see Figure 2).
