    Why wouldn't it work on SS as long as you had the corrrect speed and feed combo?
    Every cold saw I've ever used had a carbide tipped blade. Dunno why anyone would use HSS in one.

    I still maintain that a cold saw is the way to go. Almost no burr at all, no heat, no sparks...

    Ditto. Finished ends for most stuff on the initial cut is a big plus in my book.

    Where was that? Amazon is much more. Or maybe a different "model". https://www.amazon.com/69948-Cut-Off.../dp/B079GRB43J

    That looks pretty slick dian,I’m sure your familiar with the Pferd 40 thou thick zip blades there the best I’ve ever used.I use the 5” for Alumnium or Stainless on that little chop saw.

    I see that Tormach has a bar fed bandsaw for less then $4,000.00, of course there is no way to know how well it works or if it works at all.https://tormach.com/machines/bandsaws.html

    We do not have a bar fed saw other then low paid laborers, set a stop, advance stock, close vice valve, advance blade then retract blade, repeat as needed.

    Two years ago I set a stop for a new guy with no experience at all, a 20 year old. 1 1/2" dia. aluminum round bars cut 1 9/16" long, showed him what to do, whilst keeping an eye on him running the first few I had a look at the work order, 13,000 parts.

    Saw to rough length
    Face mill, chamfer mill around the OD, drill and tap 1/4-20 X 1/2" deep.
    Face mill other side bringing finished length to 1 1/2"
    Chamfer mill OD
    Mill 1/4" wide X 7/8" deep slot across face
    Deburr

    To his credit he did not quit until they were finished.

    Near the end of the cutting he ran out of stock, someone had failed to allow for the 60+ feet that went into the chips from 13000 saw cuts (-:

    This Greenlee hydraulic tool claims it will shear up to 5/8" rod (plus other shapes). https://www.greenlee.com/us/en/shearing
    Might be a little pricey.

    Many years ago I built a mini cutoff saw sized for 4" abrasive disks because I was cutting a fair amount of hard shafting. It was timing belt driven from a surplus blender motor. Still works! I made a V-block with clamps and stops for repetitive cuts. It's so crude I am reluctant to post a pic, but gives excellent cuts on stock up to 1/2". A quick touch up on the disk sander are all they need.

    Does not need to. It's not really FOR that. In fact, look at it... it likely does not have a HOLE for 3/8"

    The bench shears all have holes for 3/8" rod, and in any case, that size is big enough to use any saw with.

    The hassle making stuff is down in the wire to 3/16" or maybe 1/4" sizes, mostly too small to saw, too hard to hold one piece for an abrasive wheel, big hassle to get the end smoothed if you use nippers, etc. The cutters are for that sized stuff, even 1/4". The shear cuts 3/8", the Stanley goes to 5/16" in.

    The 3/8" SS? It's not for everything (what is?), but it IS "for" a LOT of things.

    The pics are for bolts, I thought there was a similar one for plain rod......
