For the chancel furniture project I need to install a 1/2 x 1/4 aluminum trim piece. I had a metal working friend over to show me how he does it, but he used a hand saw and my disk sander to sneak up on the angles for the joints. I thought this not to be the best bet, and it was slow and did not produce the crisp joint I was looking for.
I went to the local Borg to pick up a cheap carbide blade for my chop saw - remembering that Vaughn, myself, and others have all noted that aluminum cuts just fine with carbide - but ran across 10" metal cut off wheels that looked as though they would do the job, and they're cheaper.
Can I use these in my chop saw? Will they produce the clean cut I'm looking for?
