I used to cut aluminum with a woodworking blade. It worked, but was slow, noisy and made ragged cuts. I assumed an Aluminum Cutting Blade was just a gimmick to get me to buy their blade. Boy was I wrong! The secret sauce is the negative 5 degree rake on the teeth. Instead of trying to carve out the metal (like a positive rake woodworking blade does in wood), it shaves it. The cuts are almost polished looking! Hardly any burrs at all. The part is cool enough I can touch it immediately. Try THAT with a woodworking blade. The part my wife likes is the cut is so quiet, the saw motor makes more noise than the actual cut. SO MUCH different than the high pitched screech made during the cut with a woodworking blade.
The fact that the part is cool to the touch implies most of the energy is going into making shavings, instead of friction. This also produces less drag on the motor, meaning smaller saws could make some serious depths of cut. With the ends being polished, it provided a very professional looking cut, and will reflect positively on your project.
If you were like me and spent more time cleaning-up the burrs than you do making the actual cut in aluminum with a woodworking blade, you GOTTA' get this blade. I'm sure it works fine in brass and other non-ferrous metals, but I have not tried making cuts in anything other than aluminum. However, I can predict with a high degree of certainty that cuts in those other metals will be just as good.
The only reason not to buy this blade is you will want to replace the blades on all your other circular saws with one like it. :-)
The fact that it is Made In the USA sealed the deal for me. :-D

Cuts with a mirror-like surface2018年5月6日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I leave one of these on an old chop saw for pipe and bar stock. It cuts with a mirror-like surface and works fine not only on aluminum as advertised, but on a wide-range of brass and bronze. They make another model specifically for steel and other ferrous metals. A far superior cut compared to a band saw or typical chop saw cut-off wheel.
Nice, Sharp, American Made Blade2017年6月17日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Very nice, sharp, Made in USA blade. Made to cut aluminum/non-ferous metal. Will cut plastics or wood in a pinch. Fits my 18-volt (M18) Milwaukee 5-3/8" metal saw.
