Purty good looking, Don. As much trouble as you had to go to getting it, I sure hope it performs to suit you.

You can cut square tubing with a chop saw - it' just that you can't lay it flat. You have to clamp it when it's standing on an edge so you're never cutting directly on the flat side.

I often cut square tubing with mine. Cutting on the flat may wear the disk a little faster but I've never had a problem. Just cut 2x4 1/4 in wall on a 45 with no problem.
