    Hey just bought a 30$ cutting tool from sears. Well the cutting wheel chipped and then the whole thing had catastrophic failure. Does anyone know of a better tool to cut exhaust. I got about halfway through before it took a dump. I do have a sawsall and other items but i just dont have acess to them at the moment. Wont for another month or so. Any ideas on any substitute thats not going to run me $100? Lemme know. Thanks

    Go to Harbor Freight and grab one of their recip. saws. Its cheap, but you don't need it for long, and you can keep it as a spare sawzall.

    they even have one on sale for $30 right now (not sure if its avail in stores by you though)

    If they don't, at least bring this with you to help off-set the cost on one of the other models they have. (20% coupon good til monday)

    why not go with an angle grinder? I find the reciprocating saw is less stable and accurate when compared to a grinder.

    You could always "rent" one from an auto parts store. I think most of the stores do it these days, just leave a deposit and you'll get it back when you return the tool.

    iz wack. I have one I just dont have one with me. I currently am apart from my tools for the next month or so. I just need something to get me through all this until i move back home.

    tech... where could i rent something? I usually just buy tools if i dont have them cuz heyyy you could always use more tools. But i already have alot of the same stuff. would napa rent? i have all the "normal" name places around me just never thought of it.
