What kind of saw blade should I use?
It depends on the application. If you are cutting metal sheets or pipe, use a general metal cutting blade. General metal cutting blades have smaller teeth separated by slots. This design allows them to cut thin metal sheets and mild steel. If you are cutting heavier duty types of steel and metal materials, like bars, plates and tubes, an abrasive blade is the way to go. They are made of durable material, like fiberglass, which makes them strong enough to withstand tough conditions.
