Re: Use my Drill to Cut Metal Tube (w/small cir. saw)?
most likely your hack saw is the easiest tool for the job, and it is very safe to use, if it only 3/8" it should only take a few quick strokes and you would be done with the job,
one of the problems with the drill even if you do get a cut off wheel as that holding it if it catches it will twist around the shaft your cutting and it will not be easy to hold on to the drill and could be dangerous, and when you consider cost, of buying the cut off disk and arbor you will be way farther a head to get a new blade for the hack saw and be done with it,
and yes a drill driver is a great tool to have. but is not the correct tool for this job, and the attachments to attempt to do what your asking are not worth the money in most instances,
with the many tools I have, I would probably chose a hack saw for the job you described, (unless it is a harded shaft), and I have grinders, cutting torches, sawsalls, and more for cutting metal items.
