    Default Cut-Off Tools

    After watching Ron's video on State Farm's website, and the mention of cut-off tools to cut the harder metals such as boron, are there any depts carrying these as backup? Have there been any instances where you wish you had one or used one? I guess what i'm getting at is whether or not we need to look at adding this to our arsenal? Any opinions?

    Be aware that these tools put off alot of sparks. The blades are only good for about 6" to 12" of cuting on the hardened metals before they have to be replaced. My concern with these tools is the possibility of starting a fire or causing an explosion plus the added risk of eye injury due to the additional flying debris.

    Question

    BUMP. I would like to get some comments on this before our next meeting coming up next week.

    I know they put off a lot of sparks, I use one very often, but I think it would be a great backup tool.
