The Tannewitz saws that we used at the foundry did friction cutting. And yes Spro, lots of sparks. Sometimes they would leave the boxes of blades too close and set them on fire.

I'm thinking maybe I'll just wait around for a metal saw to pop up somewhere.

Trump's economy is just too strong. Ten years ago, it was a lot easier to find bargains on used machinery, but now people are keeping it and using it.
