Made an interesting discovery yesterday. I was cutting some 3/8" thick G10
with my table saw and of course it will burn if you're not careful. So I decided to spray WD-40 on the blade while cutting...worked really good. Also keeps the dust down. FWIW

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

+1 on the water I've never used wd40 but don't see why it wouldn't work as well and keep your saw from rusting good idea.

What kind of blade did you use in your saw? My first guess would be to use a medium tooth-count carbide tip. (Those will work quite well on aluminum, BTW)

w8qz,
Indeed I used a medium tooth carbide. I can't remember the brand, however, it was not one of the most expensive at the hardware store either.
I've used the same type blade in my 10"chopsaw to cut aluminum beam for building boat trailers. I use thread cutting oil via an oil squirt can, it cuts very nicely!

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!
