It comes in handy when you need to make a quantity of something and you need all the pieces to be exactly the same. But like I posted before, spray the blade with WD-40, it helps prevent the blade from loading up, go very slow and stay out of the way if it kicks back. I have a scar on my side from a 2' x 2' piece of 1/8" I was cutting. It got tweaked and cut me pretty good. Oh and wear a face shield. The chips string like hell when they hit your face, especially when they stick and burn you. I know it sounds really stupid/dangerous but it works really well. If you are in a pinch, you can use a wood chop saw or skill saw to cut aluminum tubing also.
