Hello. A muli-answer for this I'm afraid. The quick answer is yes depending.

Depending On:

  • Thickness of material
  • type of blade
If you are simply wanting to cut aluminum siding/soffit, then install a paneling blade backwards and chop down slowly

If you are referring to bar stock, you will - but not well. You will need a special quick-cut abrasive blade, and you may find you need to change the blades often.

If you wish to cut screen door trim, curtain rod, draft stop, Jolie Edging for ceramic tile, or other thin hollow/extruded materials - then the abrasive blade will do nicely for short/small jobs.

The main problem with cutting aluminum in a high speed rotary device is that the friction of the blade heats the metal fast enough that you get a coating on/in the blade. (In layman's terms - bunged up) The devices in machine shops are set considerably slower, and are usually cooled mainly with liquid.

Hope this answers your question satisfactorily. Good Luck and don't forget to rate this answer.

Thank You,

Stop crushing aluminium pipes.

Prevent crushing or distorting aluminium or thin wall pipe when clamping or using a vice, guide some pipe offcut, sockets or even large flat washers inside pipe to be cut etc. Place cut as close to inner support as possible.27e45d8.jpgc31a74c.jpg

How to replace carbon brushes for Hitachi C7U2

brushes can get jammed in the holders if not used for a while. If you can not pull them out then you will have to cut the wire in the middle of the spring, remove the main body from the aluminium casing and push them through. Then replace them with a new set after cleaning the holders so the new ones slide in and out smoothly.

The laser marker quit working - which parts to buy?

Hello. The C12FCH laser unit is housed in the base of the saw housing and has a part No. 323-647. Just a quick check though, are you sure it's the laser module itself and not the laser switch? And have you checked that the lens is free of obstruction? Here's a link to the parts list (blown up, not in fine print like in the manual):

Hope this helps, don't forget to rate us for assistance.

Thank You.

Saw quick working suddenly, maybe blown fuse

Your saw will have a reset button that may be black in color but should not have a fuse

With the power off push down in the reset button you may or may not hear a small "click" plug it back in a give it a try

Pushing them to hard will cause an overload and they will quit
give it 5 minutes to cool of and resetting should do it

TVs don't like being cut. It breaks them.
If you meant to say "when I turn on my TV, it turns on for a second then turns off", call Hitachi.
