Default Re: Cutting aluminum with a TS55

Thanks! Turns out TH&H has the blade - I'll be picking it up this afternoon. Thus should be fun!

When I first started watching that, I thought the metal was heating up to be red hot... then I figured out it was the red laser that was causing the perception.

I'd stick with the Kapex for alum., I'm not sure the JMP is quite up to it.

I have evidence that the JMP will most definitely cut aluminum, Tom! It's not very good for the saw blade, but it'll do it!

Hee hee!

Well, the aluminum cutting with the new ($90 ) blade went effortlessly. Thanks to all of you for your help and advice. I'll show some pictures once I get farther along.

It's kind of empowering to cut metal. This could open up whole new worlds!
