This is an awesome blade if you cut a lot of aluminum. I swapped it out on my table saw but don’t do a whole lot of cuts generally. It might make more sense on a shop saw in a metal shop.Blade is a steel reinforced blade and does make very nice clean cuts. If I could change anything about the product it’d be greener packaging, as it’s encased in the usual non recyclable plastic stuff that’s also hard to even cut the blade out of.
A hand-tensioned, hardened alloy steel body extends blade life and delivers the highest quality cuts available. Carbide tipped teeth with Alternate Top Bevel grind shear through metal leaving burr-free, cool-to-touch cuts. Designed for use with the M18 Cordless 5-3/8 in. Metal Saw, these blades feature a thin kerf that reduces the amount of drag and resistance while cutting, resulting in more cuts per charge.
The MILWAUKEE 7 IN. X 48 CARBIDE TEETH metal cutting circular saw blade is designed to cut stainless steel, aluminum, and steel with a clean and smooth cut. Until we got this blade we were cutting metal with a jig saw or Sawzall, even tin snips, and this blade makes cutting metal smooth, cool, quick and consistent. Use it in a chop saw or circular saw.
Be Careful with this blade! Max 2000 RPM limit! Excellent blade for the correct (slower) saw.Most 12-inch wood working miter and chop saws and abrasive cut off saws run from 3500 to 4000 RPM. That is WAY too fast for this blade. If you have the correct saw for this blade (12-inch, 1-inch arbor, running below 2000 RPM), it is an awesome tool. Teeth are beautifully polished. Seems a shame to cut metal with it. ha ha.The package says it is recommended for medium (1/8 inch to 1/4 inch) and thick (1/4 inch to 1/2 inch) metal. The front of the blade says it is for Steel, Aluminum, Strut, AllThread, and Angle Iron.It IS NOT recommended for cutting Stainless Steel.It has a 1″ (25.4mm) arbor
Milwaukee carbide saw blade is all that and a bag of chips. Worth the extra $ for a milwaukee blade 48 teeth will make that clean cut that you always need. The blade will cut through wood, steel, aluminum. You can use it on wood but might wear out the blade. It will cut through plastic and copper as well but this blade is meant for medium metals and other applications listed on the packaging
I have used a few metal-cutting blades in the past, but this is one of the smoothest I have seen. As you can see from the pictures below, the faces of the cuts almost have a ‘polished’ appearance. The have a very smooth and clean look, with no secondary cleanup required. When welding the pieces, all I had to do was bevel the edge and I was ready to go.The blade has a 1″ arbor, which fits most metal-cutting saws It even fits my old Makita ‘grinder’ chop with no adapters required. You can go from throwing sparks all over your workshop to a clean, almost spark-free cut by just replacing the blade.I made about 20 cuts using light pressure, and each one turned out beautiful. I don’t know how long it will last, but I’m sold on it for sure.
I picked up this blade not so much for metal work because I don’t do much metal work but to try it for quality in my 10″ miter saw. I figured if it cut metal with no problem it may last longer on wood. The teeth on this blade are not ripping teeth and gave me some doubts but after trying the blade on some wood trim it performed very well. I Think I can honestly say it outperformed all other blades I have ever used. I am very happy with my decision to use it.
Cuts 1/8” aluminum well, fits nicely on a Ryobi 7” brushless circular saw. My tools are Ryobi, with all my batteries, so I wanted this blade on my existing saw. The Ryobi has a smaller mounting hole than this saw blade, but luckily provides a beveled washer/arbor to accommodate different hole sizes. The blade cut both aluminum 1/8 sheet and 3/16” angle easily enough. I would recommend this for cutting at a job site or for oversized items that can’t easily fit into a bandsaw. Compared to my 10” cross-cut saw, this has a thinner kerf. My video shows how to change the blade on a Ryobi saw (many other brands operate the same way) and demonstrate an actual aluminum plate cut.
This will come in handy when we start installing metal sheeting under our deck for a closed overhang. We have a Milwaukee circular saw with the 7″ blade and will use this one for our project. We like the Milwaukee brand, it has been reliable and easy to use for both myself and my husband. This should be good to use for dry metal cutting. The blades feature Carbide-Tipped Teeth with Alternate Top Bevel grind enabling users to shear through metal delivering you burr-free, cool-to-touch cuts.
I received the MILWAUKEE 6-1/2 IN. X 48 CARBIDE TEETH METAL CUTTING CIRCULAR SAW BLADE to test for The Home Depot. I used it with my circular saw to cut standing seam roofing for my pergola and it worked great! Ran through the pieces like butter. What I really liked is the packaging. It is perforated for opening so that it can be used for storage as well. Simple but a great idea.
I ordered this blade and really don’t do much metal work but wanted to test the ability of This blade. I must say that it did not disappoint. I do some work with hardi backer and dura-rock usually cutting it with a 4.5″ grinder with a diamond blade being really messy and awkward to cut. I used this 7 14″ metal blade and it made my life a whole lot simpler. I am glad the idea to try it came to me because my job just got a whole lot easier. Thanks!
It might seem crazy that you can actually cut metal by using a carbide blade and not a fiber blade. But yes, you can with these blades. The types of blades leave a cleaner cut than regular fiber blades, and tend to cut cooler. You have to allow the blade to cut as you feed and not push the blade through as you would cutting wood or plastic. the blade leaves a fine finish that needs little dressing. I prefer this type of blade over fiber.
The Milwaukee 7-1/4 x 48 carbide teeth metal cutting circular saw blade with the 20 mm arbor required an arbor adapter to fit my Skilsaw. The saw and blade then made a very easy job of make angle cuts on the aluminum hand rail. Since the rail was to be used on steps ,I has to cut the ends to a particular angle. I had previously used a hack saw to cut the angles, but, it was difficult to securely hold the rail while cutting the aluminum. This blade amounted in a circular made the job extremely simple and more accurate, using only a simple clamp to hold the rail down.
This Milwaukee 12 inch carbide teeth X 60 saw blade cuts through wood like butter (but so does any new blade). It is flat and true. It should last a long time on my miter saw. I do wish the blade manufacturers would consider some other than white, red, etc paint as it does leave a mark on the wood many times that has to be sanded off. A clear coated or bare blade would be better.
Milwaukee 6-1/2 in. x 48 Carbide Teeth Metal Cutting Circular Saw Blade Love these tool replacements from them. I totally burnt up my last blade on my battery operated power saw on a previous job or two. Found this one which had multiple serious cutting teeth that actually fit on my saw. This is truly a universal blade and top quality as well. Makes short work of my cutting projects. Just make sure the circumference matches you saw dimensions and it bolts right up and ready for use.
Here is a solution for getting straight cuts in metal. This blade is designed to be used in a cordless circular saw. The blade comes in mutiple arbor sizes: 5/8″ & 20mm. The teeth are designed for cutting medium to thick metal up to 1/2″ thick but will also be usable for aluminum and copper.Due to the design of the blade it should be used dry and will give nice clean cuts on bolts as well as sheet stock.
This blade is a beast. I’ve been using this metal cutting blade a lot lately and its sliced through every piece of steel and metal I’ve put in front of it. Supper fast and smooth cuts that leaves a mirror finish every time. Milwaukee did a really good jobe with these blades. I’m really surprised that I am able to make so many cuts through such heavy metal without any damage to the blade. Well done
The Milwaukee 7-1/4 inch metal blade is an absolute pleasure to use.I am mending some gutters that have become worn and was using a hack saw to cut the gutters.This metal cutting blade is a godsend. Slices through aluminun gutters like butter!I am using the Milwaukee metal blade in my Ridgid cordless circular saw and the blade leaves a very clean cut. Now I’m only cutting through thin metal right now, and so far I’m extremely pleased with the cut quality of the blade.This blade is rated to slice through angle iron and metal up to half an inch thick. Holy moly, can’t wait to use this blade on my other projects at the farm house! I’ll probably use it cut down some iron rods to shape a barn door stop rod I’ve been meaning to make for ages!I am very pleased with this blade.HIghly recommended.
The Milwaukee 6 1/2 inch 48 carbide teeth metal cutting circular saw blade is well made and designed to get the job done. It is rated for cutting steel and aluminum in medium 1/16 to 3/16 thickness. I found it to adequate for the job and easy to work with. I especially liked the packaging that provides easy removal from the plastic sleeve and easy storage after use.
The Milwaukee 7 1/4 inch x 48 carbide teeth metal cutting circular saw blade with 20 mm arbor appears to be a heavy duty quality saw blade. My husband could not use it because of the 20 mm arbor. It doesn’t fit any of his Ryobi circular saws. He stated that if he had a grommet, he probably would have been able to use it. My suggestion is to pay attention to the arbor sizes when purchasing saw blades.
