    Scott, I use an electric scroll saw and take it easy, use bomb as a cutting oil.

    are we talking about 1/8 sheet alum?

    like Larry suggested, scroll saw or jig saw or swaz-all, it all depends on if your making straight cuts or contoured cuts.
    I use a MAC airsaw with different blades depending on what I`m doing.
    if you use to thin of a blade, you are more prone to run off the cut line if your cutting straight... use your fingers as a guide or small block of wood and medium speed. be carefull, wear eye protection...

    if you have any wax, aluminum likes wax...PR...

    what are you making, what do you need?...

    Scott, you could just use a hack saw if you are making straight cuts...aluminum cuts like wood so a band saw, circular saw, all work fine.
