    Best way to cut 50mm aluminium square stock?

    Hey dudes,

    I have some 50mm aluminium square stock i need to cut up to make some spacer blocks out of, i need to make about 6 cuts total.

    Ideally i would want a bandsaw for this. but i don't have access to one.

    What would be the best simple way to cut it somewhat neatly and squarely?

    cheers!

    Wood drop/mitre saw. Go slow/steady and you'll be fine.

        Wood drop saw works fine, just don't rush it

          Wood saw and candle wax for lube.
          Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.
