I am in the market for a metal chop (cut off) saw. I have looked at Makita, DeWalt, Milwaukee, Ryobi, Sears, and Ridgid. In my opinion, the Ridgid metal chop saw (CM1450) has the best design for the metal base, clamping system, angle indexing, and operator handle. The only negative design feature of the Ridgid CM1450 is the flimsy blade guard. I would suggest that a Ridgid designer take a look at the competion's chop saws for a better blade guard design.
