picked up a cold saw cheap
need to make a base and vice for it
question the blade is running anti clockwise up cutting towards the moving jaw
is this ok to me it should run the other way to push the work into the fixed jaw

My RAGE saw cuts upwards - fantastic bit of kit. Refer to this forum re Hot Chips !!

I was always under the impression that cold saws always run clockwise... down onto the base & into the fixed jaw ... learn something new every day!

They tend to cut upwards to pull the machine down onto the work
It's "safer"... unless the work happens to be you
(I don't like machines with teeth)
