A cut off wheel will bind and break for me (aluminum will heat and expand, then grab the wheel) - so don't I wont use except on the heavier stuff.

I wish I had a band saw, however, anyone use a cut off wheel uisng a Dremel? I agree with the difficulty of holding the jig saw steady.

This is a dash insert and I'm only trimming the sides just a little for a better fit. Do you think going slow with the Dremel is still going to bind and mess up the aluminum?

BTW Thanks for all the help. I'm truly over my head on this one
