What do you use to cut 4130 tube? I dont mean fishmouthing to fit but rather just cutting pieces to legnth. A chop saw with a metal cutting blade, hacksaw, maybe a Ginso knife?:gig:

I love my chop saw. It's fast and since you're going to notch/grind & fit the end anyway, it works great for just cutting to length.

Harbor Freight chop saw - $ 50 sale item, had it for 4 years, hasn't broken yet and I am only on the second blade.

Cutting blade in a pneumatic die grinder. Then a cone in the same die grinder to shape for the joint.

Hey Mike!

I think you know what I use? My $5 grinder from Menards.

They have sales where if you can get it in a bag, it's 50% off or something? I'm sure I paid $5 for it.

I just use the dewalt wheels and it works great.

I had looked at the cut-off saws, but since you always cut a little long any way, the grinder works perfect.

Did you get my e-mail on the DVD updates?
