Aluminium circular saws have a different blade shape to timber circular saws. Aluminium circular saws have a negative hook angle in contrast to timber blades which have a positive hook angle.
The positive hook angle and the sharper grinding angles on the timber blade work to pull the timber into the saw whilst cutting. This results in cleanly cut timber fibers that doesn’t burn the timber. Timber blades also have faster cutting speeds which creates a higher tension in the timber blade to enable the tooth edge to be kept straight whilst sawing.
The Aluminium blade has a negative hook angle so that the teeth do not grab into the aluminium and bend the aluminium that you are cutting. The aluminium blade is also thicker than the timber blade and it has less tension to make the blade stiffer and reduce the chances of the blade flexing whilst cutting the aluminium.
