    Is it slow for you too?

    Actually it's been all that I can do lately to try and keep up. I've had more orders in the last few months than I've had in a long time but I'm not complaining. Mike

    If I had the room

    I have one similar to that but on a smaller scale, uses regular hacksaw blades. It's slow but it works. Haven't used it in years. Mike

    What to do? Looking for some outside opinions.
