My Craftsman will cut a piece of aluminum that size in about 10 seconds or less. It's a hungry son of a gun. I use it for wood and aluminum. My new Wen chinesium metal band saw would cut that 3/16 piece in less than a minute. I cut a piece of 1/2 x 2" flat in about 3 minutes. Cut a piece off a 1 x 1" in about the same amount of time. I'm running a bi-metal 8/12 blade at 120fpm with mister coolant. I might try a 6/10 blade if I can find one. Or just run the 8/12 faster.
    It’s a 10/12 blade, also the saw is set for a speed for steel, also I’m kind of learning how hard to push the saw and where to place it. As I’ve said all along this saw is to fill a need without breaking the bank and be able to move about the shop. Plus the saw is a bit under powered. The motor is off a washing machine. It came with the saw

      • It looks like it works as well or better than my $50 Atlas H/V bandsaw. For sure the table is bigger, which is the worst thing about the H/V, the table is too small, and the saw too low when set up vertical. But it is on a portable stand with wheels, they are just not on the floor when the saw is set up, you have to tilt the stand to roll it around.

        None of the smaller bandsaws cut very fast. You need a big DoAll to get a reasonable speed in anything fairly thick.

        You have not had good ones.... They are nearly always bad tasting, with what I would call a bitter "iron" taste. But I have had very good Brussels sprouts, I just do not know what was different about them as far as how they were cooked, etc.

          What did your Mother tell you about eating your vegetables?

            I don't recall exactly...but it was something along the lines of "Good lord child! What did I do wrong to deserve you?!”

            • Brussels sprouts, when cooked as usually done, are dangerously close to "punishment food".

              When my mother was ticked at my father and I, she might serve something we hated, like over cooked sliced zucchini in butter. It's not bad stuff if stir fried, but I cannot take it in butter, especially overcooked to nearly a mush. There were other similar "punishment foods", but that one sticks out in my mind.

                    Butcher a pig, smoke it's belly, slice that up and cook it with the sprouts in garlic butter. Mmmm.

                        Hahaaa. Yer right, most folks dont like the sprouts. I never did till I learned how to cook them.

                        Stem and cut in half. Toss with salt, pepper and olive oil in a bowl. Broil on a sheet pan, cut side up for 20 minutes. Yum. JR

                        • I wish I took a picture of the corn beef hash I fried up this morning. It was delicious.

                          EDIT: I did take a picture of lunch from the other day: Spam burgers with sharp cheddar

                          • I have always liked Brussels sprouts - as a kid I called them little cabbages - and also broccoli, which I called "little trees". I like most veggies, except turnips. And I'm not particularly fond of raw tomatoes or cucumbers.
