Schweißfan I salute you,



cutting with a chop saw, why should I do that? What advantages do I have? But also for disadvantages?



Let’s start like this, with aluminum we have the problem that if we use normal things like an angle grinder and a cut-off wheel to cut the material that we want to weld, for example, we always have abrasion in the material. This means that the abrasion from the cut-off wheel is in the area of the cut and this is where we have the problem with welding that the whole thing shows up like dirt.


This leads to the formation of pores, for example, which makes the weld seam less stable or even leaky.

It is therefore ideal to cut the whole thing with a saw or cross-cut saw, for example. It has the advantage that the cut is extremely clean and perfect.




This means that you can weld perfectly at this point without any additional before or after work and thus have a super welding result.






Many people don’t always believe it, but the fact is that a clean component is an absolute must when welding and the best preparation for achieving the best result.


The big advantage of the cross-cut saw is that it is a dry cut, which would have a negative effect on welding, for example.

They are also very small and easy to handle. This means that you can also take it with you on the move or use it in the workshop and do not need a fixed location for this cross-cut saw.


Where you have to be a little careful and what I don’t see as a disadvantage is the protection. The aluminum chips naturally fly around a lot, which means you have to protect your eyes and hands, plus the saw is of course loud, so use ear protection and then you are perfectly protected and can make great cuts for your project.
