Metal Cut Off Wheel 7" On Table Saw


Has anyone put a metal cut off wheel 7" on a table saw. I need to trim a piece of stainless and this would give me a nice straight cut vs an angle grinder or a circular saw.

I have used it in a circular saw in the past will good results.

Any feedback would be great

thanks

No one in your parts with a shear ?, I might be inclined to try it has the s/s got a protective film If so it should slide on the table.

Sounds like a good excuse to buy a track saw

You're likely going to discolor the metal using any type of saw. I'm with sunkist, I'd call around to metal fab places.

You could probably make a straight edge and use a nibbler if you wanted to do it yourself

Heck, just go to a local fab shop and pay them a couple bucks to cut what you need.

Yeah, I've done it. Wasn't a big deal. Used to cut a lot of thin metal with a milwalkee metal blade.

I use a metal blade occasionally on my table saw. I've only cut light gauge aluminum for window trim. I'm not sure about stainless steel. Make sure to use a full face shield.

Crappy used blade and put the blade on backwards. I cut some rigid aluminum gutters that way and didn t have any issues.
Not sure about stainless steel tho.

That works with thin steel that's used for roofing but I wouldn't do it on stainless.

I say someone try it on stainless, get video

Plus a a sharp fresh blade, the right way, works helluva better than crappy old backwards on gutters, or Aluminum Siding or hell even vinyl siding (if cut from the back).

Re: Metal Cut Off Wheel 7" On Table Saw


The cut out material will do real damage to the table saw.....


Remove sawdust prior to fire....



Excuse to buy a 4" to 14" cold cut metal saw????


I'm trying to do Zero abrasive cutting/grinding in most areas my shop, the grit destroys all machine parts, and the steel waste isn't much better for damaging/spoiling many types of finishes/coatings wood and metal.


Example, abraded Carbide ending up in rebuilt gas engine......


P.S. any evidence of metal cutting with wood designed tool, no purchase of same.....IMO

I don't know what it is about stainless steel but everytime I have to deal with it I curse it. It starts to get hot, then it gets really hard and impossible to cut and snaps off the carbide teeth from your cutting device.
