    Ten years ago I bought a rigid saw for fiber board it was on clearance for $30, I thought it was great. But the blades cost $20 a pop. If your cutting cement board sawing is not the way to go. Angle grinder with a tile cutting blade! It takes a little to get use to it but wow, and no blades to buy!
