    Hi
    I have some 100x100 posts to cut, I have an Evolution saw which I think has 210mm blade but it can’t go all the way through, so I cut then flipped and tried to cut again, not perfect! So was looking at a cheap secondhand one just for a cheap fix, I just don’t know what size I need to do 4x4 timber.
    Thanks

    Set a stop up then then you get same size every time

    12" for 4" cut.
    You get half the blade less the bore and a bit
    Might be some cheap old dewalt 305mm knocking around eBay?
