I have been using my 14” bandsaw to cut aluminum using a wood cutting blade. It works, but is slow going. I have also cut aluminum on my table saw using a wood blade, but I have since used an aluminum cutting blade and it cuts like butter. I really need to use the bandsaw for aluminum cutting and wonder if anyone knows of a bandsaw blade that is dedicated at cutting aluminum.

I got one of these, and I’ve used it to cut aluminum bars, aluminum plate, and even some mild steel angle iron.
