The Harbor Freight horizontal bandsaw works great and is cheap. Alternatively, the DeWalt Multicutter and similar machines from Milwaukee and others are awesome for cutting stock to length:
I cut through that 4" square chuck of aluminum bar stock in about 15 seconds. These saws run a carbide tipped blade at slow rpms and are sort of a "poor man's" cold saw. Much nicer than abrasive chop saws I have used.
Since getting the Multicutter my HF bandsaw has been gathering dust in a corner. You can find them on eBay or Amazon for circa $400.
