I have 2 rolls of 48" X 96" tambour that I need to crosscut to
about 34" sections to wrap around a large L shaped cabinet. The
tambour material is 5/32" thick aluminum and each piece is 3/4" wide
with a 60 degree angle cut on each piece before its glued to canvas.
The cuts can be hidden with trim if they aren't presentable but I'd
like to do a reasonably good job so that 50 years from now someone
isn't taking it apart and wondering who hacked it up.
I have a band saw, a table saw and a trusty all purpose hand held
circular saw but I don't know which will be the easiest to cut the
material with or what kind of blade to use.
The band saw table size limits the ease of use but I could try to
cut it in its rolled up form.
The table saw allows the platform of the table to hold the
material but the play in the tambour makes me nervous about binding
and if the tablesaw makes me nervous I won't use it. (I still remember
every mistake I ever made on the tablesaw even though I've been lucky
enough to not have any permanent scarring.)
Well, I guess I just made my own mind up. It will be the circular
saw but what kind of blade should I use to cut the 5/32" aluminum?
Thanks for your help.
