    Dry cut metal saw question

    I tried clamping it on the side and yes that does make it cut alot easier but it doesn't seem to be able to grip it as well. Also I made alot of 45 degree cuts and found that if you turn square tubing on it's side to make a 45....you get one strange 45 lol. I was working with 1 1/2" by 3/16" tubing.
