So far I've been either using a manual saw (the manual labor here is definately a no go) or using my expensive TiAlN coated roughing end mill to rough cut pieces of aluminum alloy or plastic.
I think its time to invest in something for rough cutting pieces.
How do you guys do this?
Band saw? Mitre saw? Table saw? Maybe even handheld stuff? I have a dremel, and it sucks. Any suggestion?
Particularly, being able to cut 1-2" thick aluminum flats/plates and 3-4" thick plastic (e.g. UHMWPE).
