How do you like the saw? How does it compare to a horizontal band saw?

I absolutely love the saw, both tools have their place but the circular chop saw makes fast, clean and very accurate cuts. The only downfall is the cost of the blades but it's just part of doing business. A horizontal bandsaw is going to have a larger capacity but takes much longer and has the potential for blade deflection, the bandsaw is great for setting up thick material and I can walk away while it's cutting. I mostly use the bandsaw in the vertical position or horizontally for late night building as it basically is silent.

I also bought a 9" slugger circular saw that works amazing too.

You probably should, at least then it'll be useful.

I’d never get any work done. Oh wait. Is that why this car isn’t finished?

I don't get the inside jokes here, but I would also like to see this car again because it's awesome and has been much of the inspiration for my '83 Alpin/Schwartz 533i. No e28 here is 'finished' and if it were, that would be boring.
