answer 2
As long as you follow the cool-down instructions in the manual you should be able to cut anything you want. I've used mine for 1" plate steel for 16" runs. Made shooting targets from the 16"x16" squares and a piece of angle iron. It'll cut 3/8" and way more if you take care of the motor temps.

Does the Milwaukee model #6370-21 metal saw create sparks?

We're looking for a metal saw that won't create heat or sparks that would damage galvalume roofing panels, and capable of cutting heavier/thicker metals also.

If the blade is new out the box - for the first few cuts there are no sparks,
even after using it for a while, the amount of sparks is really minimal, must of them get fought in the chick catcher tray on the side of the saw anyways ....

Question

Can this saw cut square holes in metal?

I need to cut large openings (16' x 20") in galvanized sheet metal and aluminum sheet (1/8") Can you stab the blade down to start a straight cut? We need to cut about 30 of these holes. I figure a Saws All or similar would not cut very straight. Thanks

Milwaukee does not specify an average amount of cuts a blade should complete before replacing. There are too many variables including the type of material being cut and material thickness to state an expected blade life.
