    GOOD GRIEF!!!! 8D How did I ever live without this thing? I got a Craftsman 6.5A recipro saw the day after x-mas ($60, still on sale I think) and some Milwakee "Torch" metal cutting blades at home depot.

    Today I had to cut off the last 18" of my exhaust pipe (3" dia and purdy thick) as part of my shack flip install...so I whipped out the sawzall and made my first cut. Yikers, like a hot knife through butter!!! Weeeeeee!!!! My sheetmetal will NEVER be safe again. ;)

    Seriously, if I didnt have this thing, it woulda taken me like 2 days to hacksaw it off. Forget that! The sawzall is my new best friend. =)
