I used a cheap disk sander to get the angles right, along with a digital protractor to adjust the fence.

I think I know what you bought - I have one too - but a *real* cold saw costs $$$$ and the blade turns very slow, like one turn per second - really. They also usually have coolant. They're awesome but way out of reach for most of us.


They do make cold cut saws that turn faster and without coolant. I have this and love it. It helps to get the specific blade for steel and dont force the blade through, let it cut slowly and you will get a great cut with no clean up needed.

Wow. That's a great idea. Stand in front of the path of the moving vehicle...
