What metals and other materials can this cut with the blade supplied?
This product is suitable for aluminium and copper as stated on the web, this is also suitable for most non-ferrous metals due to its 355mm abrasive blade. If you are looking to cut different materials simply replace the blade with a 355 x 25.4mm blade of your choice, unfortunately at this time we do not supply this specification of blade in any form.
Thank you for using Q&A.

Cutting Stainless Steel interior Handrails
I want a tool to cut 42mm diameter stainless steel tube handrails, with ~2mm wall thickness. Will this do the job?
How clean is the finished cut?
As these will be in the lounge and hall/landing.
The blade that comes as standard for this product is recommended for general use with metal. If you are looking to cut something specific with a cut that is up to a specific standard we would recommend either testing the current blade on a non essential item of the same material, diameter and thickness or utilising another blade (355mm x 25.4mm bore) which better matches your requirements.
Hope this helps.

Reading the answer to Luciferpie in the questions section of this chop saw has left me confused. Surely this is an abrasive wheel type saw, like an angle grinder? So why would you lubricate the cut, you only do this with non abrasive wheels? If the answer is in fact correct, what lubricant? I've been metal working for 12 years and the answer makes no sense at all to me, sounds like a recipe for a fire applying cutting fluid to an abrasive wheel! I would appreciate an answer as I intend to buy this chop saw. My second question is can the clamp be used to cut 50mm angle iron/box section at 45 degrees?
Sorry for the confusion. I think the previous answer relates to lubricating the inside of the machine and not the abrasive disc itself. The max cut at 45 degrees is 70mm
