It's interesting, how sheltered a life we live, all these mfg's things you expect to be ready.

Since I also run a lot of elec. in conduit, I use my linemens pliers. Not as clean as the roto-tool, but works.

Has anyone used one of these plunge saw tools for difficult access cutting of galvanized pipe? There is one spot where I need to cut and a sawzall may be difficult. Just want to know before I crawl all the way to the most difficult corner of my crawl space. Thanks.

I have this tool;

Fein FMM 350 QSL Multimaster Oscillating Multi-Tool with Hard Case and Top Accessory Package

And have used both of these blades, however because they are not designed specifically for your application, take a couple of blades, or more, with you.


Fein 63502106210 MultiMaster 3-1/8 in. Starlock HSS Segment Saw Blade

Fein 63502152290 1-3/4 in. Universal Oscillating E-Cut Saw Blade (10-Pack)

It's mainly one cut that I need to do and I got a carbide blade. Rest I should be able to use my sawzall for the most part. Thanks, I appreciate it.

Budget for contingency.

Either try it on a piece of galv. pipe before you go under or take a couple of blades with you.

They are returnable.
