We recently received a comment on one of our early tips by tom articles. This article on aluminum cutting seems to get a lot of traffic. It was one of our original posts and contains helpful information on cutting aluminum in a pinch. The article explains how you can use equipment found in any wood shop to accomplish the job of cutting aluminum. At any rate, after several years we received this letter from Don in Florida. Since we are into entrepreneurship, we thought wed go ahead and post! Thanks for noticing our website Don and best of luck with your business!
My name is Don McKinney. Our company is Bob’s Saw Sharpening, Inc. I
read your article on cutting aluminum and liked the warning about the
“kick back” . Many people don not realize that when using the wrong
tool for the job could be very dangerous. The kick back comes from
using saw blades designed to cut wood or an improperly designed aluminum
cutting saw. We manufacture a line of blades for this material that
does NOT kick back or grab. Leaving a bur free cut on most shapes
including plate, pipe, window and store front extrusions, picture frames
and even PVC. It’s called the NO-GRAB. It has more of a milling action
than a cutting one. With a wood blade, the more you feed, the faster it
cuts. Our blades offers a controlled chip. The more you feed, it
doesn’t cut any faster!
