Still my favorite thread.

But a hacksaw? Is that because you don't have a cutoff saw or band saw where you could set a jig to cut at a 90 degree angle or because you felt you could cut an equally square cut in the same time with a hacksaw or for some other reason. Just curious.

Forging ahead, down a false trail.
