what's the best approach for sawing aluminum?

What's the best approach for sawing aluminum?

Circular saws generally are suitable for cutting aluminum between 0.5 and 6 in. diameter, for high-volume jobs (up to 5,000 parts per shift), and for the best possible finish on the cut piece. Band saws generally make sense for aluminum stock of 6 in. diameter and larger and for shops that are interested in high-speed cutting of aluminum but also frequently cut other materials.

As long as the rotational speed is in the ball park for the size of cutter in question you'll see what I mean. Too slow and it doesn't seem to take the cut as nicely. Too fast and the machine will start complaining. But when you get it just right you'll be surprised at how the table
