My son wants to use a chop saw to shorten cases. As he is in and out of the country (USAF) he has asked me to get him one. I checked with Harbor Freight but can't find one that appears to be the right one. Could someone please tell me which is the chop saw everyone is getting from Harbor Freight
Same thing as HF listed on E Bay and maybe a few $$ cheaper? That's where I got mine and it works as designed.
Had to take it apart after cutting a few cases and tighten up the pieces that didn't get squared away at the factory but after that, No Problems.
The 2" should work from 5.56 to 20 MM cases, The 6" on up to 105's
What's he cutting ?? Don't forget extra blades.
I think a few here have made jigs for making "Whisper" cases, maybe they will post pictures

The 2" is what I use. http://www.harborfreight.com/b...t-off-saw-42307.html
I use it for trimming jackets for swaging as well. I have made a few jigs to allow adjustable trim length on the jackets.

Will, I have the Harbor Freight Mini Chop Saw (the small one). I used it to make all of my 300x221 cases (from W-W .223 Remington brass) Works like a charm ! I did not use a jig, but it would be definitely easier to use with one. On my "to do" list !
Thanks for the replies everyone. Philip that is where he is going. Wants me to do the wood work which should not be a problem. And Philip, the dies are great. Really appreciate them.
This is before I upgraded to the premium wood handle.
