  • my new tool

    So today I took about 45 minutes to cut a peice of 3" abs in the tightest spot in the world. So on the drive home and the carpal tunnel setting in I thought of this little contraption.

    It is as simple as hell but it works. Two peices of 3/4 drilled in the center and a plain old guitar string. I tried it out on a peice of 1 1/2'' abs and it cuts in about 10 seconds

    I keep a D-string in my truck.

    The cable cutters they sell are no comparison.

        Also, a five dollar rotozip saw blade on a 1/8" shaft works wonders with my cordless too.

          The number 6 string, all i had was a #48, may try out something a little thicker later on

              I have never used a cable cutter or thought of using one before

                The copper sounds cool.The loops always feel like they are going to do permanent nerve damage to the inside of my fingers when the wire starts to lock up on ABS thats trying to rebond as it cools.

                    In a pinch you can do it with nylon masons twine.

                        Try the .024, D-string...smaller cuts faster with less resistance.

                          A little too much information.
