Cutting Aluminum with Carbide Blade?
I've been terribly busy lately, but if I may impose for a question: Has anyone ever cut lightweight aluminum with a carbide tipped table saw blade? I have anou 36" of 1" square aluminum tube, .062" wall, and I need to "rip" it lengthwise, making a "C" shape. There are probably special blades just for this, but for only 1 cut?
Hence I thought, carbide is a lot harder than aluminum, so if I go slow (& maybe use a blade I don't care too much about), perhaps I can get away with it.
