How to cut aluminum with a drill press?

I know you aren't supposed to mill with a drill press, so if I needed to cut a sheet of aluminum in half, could I just drill overlapping holes down it and clean it up later? Sliding it down a fence as I went? I need to cut pieces out of 1/8" aluminum sheets. Is it possible?

Answer:

You can cut aluminum with a saw and a carbide blade. I have used a table saw numerous times to do this. The more teeth on the blade the better. Make sure you have long sleeves on and protective eye wear.
This seems easy to do but be careful. The first time I tried this it was a little UN-nerving to cut metal of a tool designed to cut wood.
Good luck....
