    Default Metal and Wood

    Do any of you use your machines to cut both metal (steel; very thin .07") and wood? To this point I have only cut wood. I have an opportunity to cut some metal products. What should I be concerned about? I use an older PRT with an 8 zone vacuum hold down table and fair dust collection.
