If so, what size saw would you use for say 1/2" tubing.
For those of us with a slightly less well equipped workshop, Tony Foale has a free piece of software that will print out a template for cutting the tube, so you can use hand tools - Link

Shoot, I don't think you can hurt my driveway if you tried. With all the dropped filters during oil changes, I don't think you could tell if you did.

You are quite welcome.

I was just thinking the other day - if any of your horse customers ever talk about getting an ornamental horse gate built and installed, I'd like to try my hand at it.

I can build it, set it, and even wire it. All I need is a nice generator or maybe even a Miller Bobcat on a trailer.

You betcha. I only gave input when asked. I do the same when my nephew is over. I won't let you screw it up, but I also try to keep my opinions to myself so you can learn as you go. It makes the project "yours" and makes it a better end product because it came from your imagination instead of mine.

Just like reading a book then seeing the movie. The movie will always suck because your mind's eye sees things differently than the movie director's mind.

Cool! Good timing too, I'm just about to make some sawhorses out of 60mm OD pipe which probably won't fit in my lil notching rig.

Cheers
