Does anyone think this will be able to cut aluminium? That's between 2 to 4 mm thick??

Nothing cuts aluminium nicely, but given the right aluminium alloy the right tool bit and the patience of a saint you could succeed, but, you might wonder if more orthodox linear bearings could have saved your hair :thumsup:
