I think the casting is aluminum, the door is for sure, but my back still felt it when I put it on the stand

SFT first, internet pictures of whats behind the door of this saw

Cool saw, sure looks a little "busy" around the wheels. How's it cut? RED

Nice saw! Just curious why you decided on that over an Ellis? The Ellis is twice the capacity for the same money. Are you concerned with space, or are there things that make it alot better?

Ray sent me this picture, and I like how you can use it standing upright.
It does tuck the wall and looks like the vice setup beats a Ellis too.
I like Ellis saws myself but I like a wet blade option.

I gotta agree on the vise. Looks very sturdy.

Nice saw. It was a toss up between that and the Ellis 1600. I went the route of the Ellis as I didn't want to deal with the coolant mess and it was a bit cheaper with more capacity. The Kama looks very well made - let us know how it cuts.

Ray -

Looks identical to a European cold saw, except the band drive replaces the saw blade. I'd be happy to have that saw in my shop Very nicely made.
