Hi all! I have a project that requires me to cut up a fair amount of 14-gauge slotted steel angle stock, about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". It is the thin sheet metal stuff, not the hot rolled heavy stuff.
What hand tool would you use to cut it up? I tried a jigsaw with a metal blade, and that made a fairly clean cut, but it was slow and more importantly, made a gawdawful screeching noise. I am not going to bother with a hacksaw, and I don’t have space for a metal-cutting chop saw.
So should I spring for a cordless bandsaw? Or should I just go with an angle grinder with the right wheel? That Milwaukee looks pretty tempting, but it seems to be a one-trick pony. What do you think?
