I was given the pole from a broken pole pruner and the saw blade that bolted on the side of that pruner. The pruning head on the end of the pole that held the blade broke and was discarded. I have decided to insert a wooden dowel (broom handle fits perfect) into the end of the aluminum pole then slit the pole and wooden center lengthwise about 4 inches to sandwich the saw blade inside. I'll drill two holes through the pole, wooden center and blade and bolt it on giving me a sturdy pole saw.
I'd like to cut them at the same time so the slit lines up but I could do it separately and hope I hit center on both. I have a wood band saw but the only blade I have is pretty course and it cuts crooked. I have a metal band saw too but it's made for cutting steel. I have a table saw with a variety of wood blades and abrasive blades for steel. Other options are hand sawing with a coping saw or hack saw or I have a 3 inch air cut off tool with abrasive blades. What's the best way to split the pole and wood dowel.
