  • Choosing the right balde

    Metal cutting


    Ah metal cutting.... cool.

    Olson has a blade specifically for metal and it works rather well in my humble opinion. Remember to use a cardboard backing when cutting metal,- don't want any damage to happen to that dewalt table and it helps reduce the noise.

      I have used FDM blades to cut aluminum ,pvc,wood,acrylic with just a #7 or #9 two way--two way becaause thats all I have besides spiral-- but I know there are blades made espically for cutting heavier metals --I have even cut diamond design aluminum with them and had no can ask Mike ( 3M) and he will know what you need--just send him a e-mail tho cause he doesn't answer the private messages here . but I think it is a metal blade from just about any company--just go with what brand you like
