> Since I had never really cut EHS before (the tower came with the house), I
checked the TT archives and saw references to metal cutting grinding wheels
and bolt cutters.
> I went over to the local Lowe's this morning and cringed at the grinding
wheels....just doesn't seem to be a safe or sane way to cut metal to
me.....Are they really effective at cutting EHS? How many cuts can you make
off of one 7" wheel?
A better option is to use a 4.5" hand-grinder. I couldn't do any tower
work without one. Get the thinnest cutting blades and they'll cut thru EHS in
a couple of seconds. Obviously all safety precautions should be used.
I used to use the 7" aggregate cutting blade on my Skil saw but it was
pretty cumbersome. The little hand-grinder is the only way to go!
