Cheers, Well i went for it and ordered the Milwaukee which turned up this morning.

It absolutely flies through tray, and actually leaves a very neat cut.
Feels a good quality tool as well.

Can think it will also be good for steel conduit, din rail, steel hydraulic tube etc.

Will be interesting to see how long the blade stays sharp for.

Can those metal blades be used on other circular saws more suited to woodwork

I think so, its just the motor speed is optimum for steel (slower), so it may burn the blade out quicker, plus the metal chards would come out of the dust port into your face - rather than staying under the saw.

Good point there.
I'd posted that circular saws intended for wood run quite a bit faster, but realised that this isn't the case with all of them. Another post highlighted speed before I had a chance to edit :relaxed:

I have used the Rage Evolution type of blades,to cut boarding used around the bank cash machines .... legitimately....it is 32mm ply,sheathed both sides with a thin,bonded layer of stainless steel sheet. It coped fairly easily,but the waste material is brutal :(

For the perfect job on the OP's trailer work,might i recommend,investing in a water laser,or Fibre laser....lovely finish and +/- 0.1mm ;)
