Default Diablo 10” blades for cutting aluminum

Guys Home Depot doesn’t like quality products anymore and dropped all their Freud table saw blades in a favour of Diablo . The Freud router bits are being ousted next ,to bad there wasn’t a deal .

Anyways the local steel place here always scratches my checker plate when they cut it , so I want to opt to do it myself on my tablesaw.
I need to cut checker plate aluminium , and am wondering if the Diablo blades are recommended .
This is the link for the one I’m looking at . I was going to try Home Hardware tomorrow and see if they carry Freud .

seriously...
all the information about blades I've put up and you ask this...
just make sure it's a negative rake and a TCG grind...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Rick, I believe Freud makes the Diablo line of blades.

I don't cut metal with a saw blade, on purpose anyway. But years ago I bought a blade for my circular saw at Big Lots, for $10. Carbide tipped, zipped thru wood like a hot knife thru butter, still does for that matter. I think the blade would be good thru aluminum, don't know if it would scratch it or not, but a run with a sander would solve that. Thing is, if it was only good for a few pieces, then had to be replaced, it was cheap. Haven't been in Big Lots for a number of years, but they always had things at a low price. Bought a batch of metal quick clamps for $1 each, should have bought them all. If you have one near you wouldn't hurt to check it out. I think I'll try to remember to check the one here, if I remember next time I'm in the county seat.

Good question Herb . It seems pretty thin ,but that’s not saying much . I may just go and purchase the Diablo tomorrow , that’s if the other two stores do not stock Freud

Rick, if you insist on a red blade, HD sells one for about $100 less than the one you posted. Specifically for aluminum, too.
