  1. technique for cutting with drop saw

    I have this exact saw, and had this exact problem cutting 45 degree angles. It's not the greatest dropsaw in the world, but I've managed to get it cutting 45 degree cuts pretty well. Not 100%, but about 95% and a shitload better than the first cuts I made. I wore out the original cutting disc pretty quickly so grabbed one of the Flexovit blades 358mm x 3mm x 25.5mm (same size as the original cutting disc) and that has helped quite a bit, but the major thing that helped was using an extra G clamp to clamp the work to the bed of the saw, as the vibration of the machine and the spinning of the disc would lift the work slightly in the vice on the bed of the saw. Cut slow, let the disc do the work and it's working a lot better now.
  2. picture information

    That information is called the EXIF information, not all photos will have it, but straight off a camera they generally will. Flickr has full EXIF information available, photoshop can read and write it, and from memory even recent versions of Windows can read it, too.

  6. car being impounded

    Or, here's an idea. Realise you f**ked up, accept the consequences and leave them your daily. As is required by law. Stop trying to weasel out of it.
