I've read a ton of material about converting a wood band saw to cut metal. Not something I'm going to do with my Grizzly G1013 but I do have a question. The saw has 2 speeds. 3000SFPM and 1600SFPM. I know it's not ideal but would 1600SFPM be useable for aluminum? I realize it's to fast for steel and not in spec for aluminum but I'm still wondering if it would be "acceptable" for occasional aluminum cutting. What tpi blade would be a good choice? Mostly for plate 1/2" or less. I have a cold cut saw for bar and round stock.
