    Pick a Cutting Tool

    You have two choices here.  If your #1 priority is saving money go with a hacksaw.  But please don't totally cheap out here.  We don't want to turn you into a swearing sailor  Here is a table of hacksaws we would recommend buying (notice they are all high tension).  


    Tekton Hacksaw

    Amazon Stanley High Tension 12 inch


    Lowe's Craftsman 12 inch Fine Cut


    Home Depot Stanley 12 in. High-Tension


    Spare Blades

    Amazon Lenox 12in Bi Metal 2 Pack


    Lowe's Lenox 12 inch 2 pack


    Home Depot Dewalt 12in Bi Metal 2 Pack



    Dewalt Hacksaw

    If you want to be more efficient with your time we highly recommend using a sawzall.  This is the more expensive option but you will save yourself a lot of time.  Its also just a great tool to have handy for many other projects.

    Nut Drivers and/or Adjustable Wrenches
