    Steel Cutting Chop Saw

    Where I work I had the shop (CNC machine shop) buy the Evolution S355 CPSL 14 inch saw with the appropriate blades for cutting stainless steel (300, 400, 17-4). They've been using it heavily for about a year and they like it better than the band saw and the cold saw.

    What tires are on your truck?

    I probably do baby it. Mostly highway miles and rotating the tires every 5k to 7k miles. My rugged trail riding adventures in the Tundra consist of driving across about 100 yards of hard pack pasture from a gravel drive to my barn 2 or 3 times a week.

    What tires are on your truck?

    My 2017 Tundra was delivered with BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO2. They are passing 57k miles. I have always thought they were a little noisy on the highway but overall I've been very pleased with them. My tire guy thinks they may have another 5k miles left but I didn't want to wait until they...
