Default Drum cutting tools

I got all sorts of tools, both electric and air, for cutting into drums but this one is the sweetest. HF sells them on sale for under $10. I aalso figured out that plain old hacksaw blades work in them. Here's a link and a pic

I found a metal cutting blade on my circular saw worked pretty well for me, just zipped around the drum and done.

Yeah, I've used those 7" cut-off blades in saws and grinders too. I'll certainly say that for $2/blade it's the cheapest. My point is the best overall; if you already got an air compressor. And say you're cutting a small door into a barrel; the blade is very thin and the cut is much more precise.

Any disagreement is fine. I just wanted to share some info on technique that should be new for most.
