    What blade to use?

    I currently have a couple panels of Gladiator Gearwall Panels in my garage. I'm wanting to put a couple more of these up but they will need to be cut. What type of blade should I use for that material?

    If I knew what that was then I might have a recommendation.

    For an instant I thought I may have reason to pull out this picture:

    I don't know what this stuff is either. If these panels are metal, I'd be telling the wife I need a plasma cutter. Oh wait, I already have one.

    I am no help either. I thought this was going to be a golf thread. The "blades" I just picked up are the Nike Slingshot OSS and I would recommend those.

    That is way fancier than the 16 penney nails that I hang all of my stuff on.

    Re: What blade to use?

    When I was looking at those for my garage, I was told you cut them with a circular saw or jigsaw using an ordinary wood blade. Their website seems to say the same thing...

    I ended up not getting that product, so I can't confirm this...

    It looks like a composite of some sort. Any wood blade will melt it's way through the stuff. So, ever get your garage dirty?

    I try to keep it organized and looking nice. I also have the Epoxy stuff on the floor.

    BTW-Those pictures are not my garage.

    I would recommend going here:

    The Basics: How To Choose The Right (Carbide Tipped) Saw Blade For Cutting Plastics: Plastic Distributor & Fabricator

    It's not a simple question, really. I've cut plexis and polycarbs for aircraft windows, and they are each different. Thickness, softness, etc..

    I've always wanted to try the RotoZip(tm) tools for plastics as well. Let us know how it turns out!

    (My first snarky instinct was to respond with "mmm hmmm, I allays used a sling blade. Sum peeple call it a Kaiser blade, but I calls it a sling blade....)


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    Re: What blade to use?

    I ended up just using a standard blade for cutting wood. It worked perfect.
