What’s a good saw blade for cutting acrylic tubing?

I’m a complete noob when it comes to rigid tubing, and when I went to make my first cut I learned pretty quickly that using a tubing cutters definitely ain’t gonna work 😂 So I’m gonna use my miter saw, I just gotta find out what kinda blade to get for it. Any recommendations of blades that you guys have found to make nice smooth cuts?


If you continue to pre-order games, buy DLC season passes, and pay full price for partial games with Day 1 DLC, then you are half the problem with modern video games. You are responsible for the loss of quality and value in today's games, and you have no right to complain when you realize you've been shafted yet again. Don't let publishers and developers take you for a ride. Be a responsible consumer, vote with you wallet.

I used one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/2037552360
The tube I used wasn't brittle at all.

I think a miter saw is a little extreme if your talking electric miter saw. You only need a hack saw, 32 teeth would be fine. I use my cordless band saw, which is nice and easy. I've even just used a hack saw blade when I left my tools at work.

I actually tried my cordless bandsaw on the tube earlier today and the cuts were very smooth, but I’m extremely OCD and I want my cuts to be perfectly flat and straight and precise, and my miter saw is the only way I can get that kind of precision. My cuts were pretty close with the band saw but just too much variance for my liking. I know it seems overkill but my OCD is that bad 😂

Hi,
Laminate/ Veneer
Only thing at home depot in 10" is a 80 tooth which might work okay with the right fence... sharper probably

If you drop down to 7.25" there are ..140 tooth blades and just build up your fence and add a better backing to keep burs minimal usually have to sand a little inside and out anyway to break the sharp edge off the tubing so it doesn't cut your o-rings.
Cheap enough you might test some for best results between the two first would be more universal
