well.. my angle iron didn't work out.. I needed two pieces that were longer.

And boy are you right, it is expensive at Lowe's....
So I thought, there must be something laying around my house or my dad's house.

And then I found it ! The last homeowner left the old garage door opener here.
And it had about an 8 foot piece of T shaped 3/16th iron on it.
Presto! 4 blades later... And I have my two pieces.
And I would imagine they are stronger because they are T shaped.

Cool!

I thought of something earlier while reading the wet saw thread - you might want to include rental/purchase costs for tools.

Of course, you might just find them laying around your house...


Wish I would...

well.........


I was a carpenter for 10 years while going to school... So I did accumulate many tools..........and I laid tiles several times before my Dad (work partner) said NO MORE FLOORS!

And I do have a wet saw..... So I am very fortunate.

Wet saw, grinder, table saw...
Hopefully anything I need.

I've been blessed.

And if anyone lives around San Angelo Texas I would be happy to help with tools or muscle!

Good Day Everyone,

Dave
