When you’re working with metal, a circular saw blade that’s up for the job is an essential tool. Most metal-cutting circular saw blades are designed to cleanly slice through metals up to ⅛” thick. The most common blade materials are cermet and carbide. Carbide blades work best at lower speeds, depending on the blade diameter. Cermet blades are made of a combination of ceramic and metallic materials and work best at high speeds. Blades will vary in durability, and some are more suited to thinner or thicker metal. If you’re hoping for tidy and clean cuts, look for blades that don’t leave burrs and minimize vibration.
