I can't imagine cutting 4 1/2" drill stem with a chop saw, maybe there are better saws and blades than I have seen.
It’s slow going with an abrasive chop saw, but a cold cut saw is quite different. It zips through in seconds.

Sounds interesting, I will have to look into them.

We watched some videos on a cold saw at work a few weeks ago. I’ll have to see if they bought one or not. Looked much faster and quieter than an abrasive chop saw.
