What a stooge everyone knows you use a 4” grinder with a metal cutting wheel, and always wear your safety glasses. And you might want to have a tourniquet on hand just in case.

All this time I had used the router table for this. At least you can set the depth of cut safely on the RT.

I knew a guy that cut part of his cast off with a compass say. at least if has a hand powered saw and it was his own arm. Of course he is also the guy I watched working on neon lighting from an aluminum ladder!! and he got the snot knock out of him too!!
BTW After the saw incident he had to have surgery and have that piece of bone attached with a screw. He might have bumped his head in the motorcycle wreck
