Very nice. Looks professionally done. What covering did you install over the aluminum?
It was a nightmare. I used Bosh blades and they were pure junk. But they were all I could find. I would take a 2X4 so to use the high part of the blade....then use a 3/4 inch piece of wood to use a different part of the blade....then just let the jig saw sit flat to use the last part of the blade.Looks great!!. For reference you can buy a saw blade for a circular saw that cuts aluminum. Then you only have to use the jigsaw for details.
I used a Makita jig saw....not variable.You did a good job.
For future reference, we could have kept you in the wood realm for the weight added there. glassed it , and coated it in KiwiGrip.
Di you use a variable speed saw?
We cut aluminum parts at work with a carbide tipped blade in a miter saw, it cuts pretty clean and easily. Just buy a cheap blade or use and old one with the intention of throwing it away. A little air grinder with a cut off wheel works pretty good too.Looks great!!. For reference you can buy a saw blade for a circular saw that cuts aluminum.
