I should have added that I have cut aluminum alloy on the wood saw. usually up to 10 mm thick.
I have to feed very carefully and the shrieking noise is a bit off-putting.
I did fit a new Starrett blade that is designed for metal, but the first attempt to cut a piece of 1/8" mild steel took the set off the blade. It is much too fast.
I have decided to drop the new saw option. Can't really justify it when I can get any large pieces cut up where I used to work. The convenience of my own saw would have been nice, but I think that I am going to have to consider some kind of reduction for the table saw. I have a few ideas.
Yes, there will be pictures.
