I have a very basic miter saw. It is Delta brand I purchased over 20 years ago. I was tempted to go out and buy a new saw but I decided to clean it up, square up the fence and give it a good test first. Knowing that I will be cutting aluminum I went online and bought non-ferrous metal blade. I decided to go with something relatively inexpensive and found Concord brand on amazon with good reviews. It worked like a charm. It was very easy to cut aluminum and I have no complains about the blade and quality of cuts. I recommend this blade, it is good bang for the buck. My old saw did the job and I will keep using for now.
