    Re: Chop saw vs. Cold saw

    Scott,

    What blade do you use and what wall thickness are you cutting?

    I have a couple alum tubes I need to cut;one is 0.375" and the other is 0.125" wall thickness. You think that's too much?

    It's been a fun project so far. I've learned a little about small engines along the way. I noticed the clutch got pretty hot during the test run, so I had to investigate. I may need to replace the...

    Bummer! All the pics are hosted on photobucket, so that's probably the reason.

    Thought I'd post an update showing a pretty good snow load. It just kept coming down for several weeks. Then we got rain about 4 days after this pic was taken. It held up just fine :greengrin

    I still haven't towed it behind my bike becuase it still has some bugs to be worked out, but I've walked with it 3 or 4 times this year.

    Thanks :tease:

    They are calling for high winds the rest of the day, and they were building on my way to work, so those leaning trees may be down soon :tapedshut

  17. Tree vs. Shed... Shed wins!

    We had some really high winds today along with a lot of rain and it all came together to give us a tree on our shed and several sections of our back fence down.

    I'm not looking for a shine, I just want to clean them up so they don't look crusty any more. I have a cup brush for my grinder, no idea if it's stainless steel though. Thanks for the tip!

  19. Re: A shed is an extension of the garage/shop - lets see them!

    Thanks! I guess you could call it surface scale. Because the shelves held fish tanks, anywhere that was constantly wet has a yellow crust on it. I've picked up a brush with a scraping edge on it...

    Well here's an update:
