I need to cut decking boards , and don't want to use the blade that's in it , although it probably would cut the boards , so was wondering if I could fit a wood blade , not to fussy on a perfect finish ,itll give me a nice square cut on this machine

'Chop saw' can be used to mean a wood/mitre saw or a metal/cut-off saw, I guess you mean the latter? TBH I don't know, but if you try it and find a blade with the right diameter and bore then don't forget to 'also' check the RPM is suitable for the blade speed rating or else it could be dangerous.
