Thanks again,
The reason for the change is that wood saws spin their blades faster and have fewer teeth per inch. For cutting metal, you need to slow the blade down, which is as simple as changing the pullies and belt. Then you need to buy blades with more TPI to cut metal. Not really a big deal.

I hope your new saw gives you years and years of good, trouble free, service!
