I have one like that and have used it to cut a rather complicated repair 
  plate from 1/2" steel. No curves but the 8" X 3" part with a couple 
offsets came out fine.  I just used a grinder for the finish curves.  No 
problem with the saw.  Just don't expect too much from it.  Thin metal 
will encourage the blade to jump off the wheels.

like it? How good is it for fairly thick steel, like cutting a pattern 
out of 1/4 inch
steel plate?
