  • fastest pipe cutting i ever saw

    from time to time iv'e had to cut cast iron pipe.
    i started using a recip saw with the torch blades
    they are strong and fast cutting blades
    48-00-1440 - Milwaukee Tool Diamond Grit The Torch® Sawza Reciprocating Saw Blade

    but the fastest ive ever seen a pipe cut was by an old hull technician in the navy.
    he went to the armory and got some det cord

    cut the pipe instantly but sprayed turds all over the admirals cabin
    we all just vanished for the rest of the day
    shooting the s*** is a lot more fun when you use hollow points (much more splatter)

    coffee hell gimme booze!!!

    I've used those diamond grit blades you mentioned with the Milwaukee super sawzall to cut cast myself. I've used on old cast when a snap cutter might not be a good option. If you have enough access around the pipe, any size grinder with the diamond blades you can buy at the depot will cut a lot faster than a recip with a diamond grit blade. Sooner or later, you'll find lots of stuff that diamond grinder blade will cut; I love em.

      Those diamond sawzall blades are slow and very costly. A diamond 4.5" grinder whell is cheap now and will smoke a sawzall. Even a 4.5" cut off wheel will kick butt. Only need access to less than 50 % of the pipe. You can plunge cut from the outside to the inside pretty easily.

              x2 on the grinder that's the only way to go.
