I recently bought some of the bright aluminum wire from TRL. It is much harder than the wire I normally use and I am having a hard time cutting it. My question is should I go faster or slower on the speed of the blade. I am using the 160 tooth 1.75 blade from TRL also.

The wire I was using is just electric fence wire bought at a tractor supply store. Soft aluminum. It is very easy to cut. With the new stuff, I get about halfway through and the blade just jumps up over the top of the coil. I have it set plenty deep, so the problem must be the speed.

What kind of setup are you using and how fast is your current blade speed?

Make sure your blade is rotating in the right direction. You want the spin of the blade to be compressing the coil as it cuts, not trying to stretch it out. If the blade is jumping up onto the coil this may be the problem.

Happy cutting.
