    Use protective gear every time.

    We get the Message.
    I’ve kindly asked the mods to remove your picture as that’s quite shocking to open up and see without warning. I deal with blood and guts pretty well but some people who don’t will not like that at all.

    Many people don't get the message, hence accidents like that happening.

    Unfortunately accidents will continue to happen but we as a collective are far better educated on protecting ourselves than we were 10,20,30 years ago.
    The picture certainly made you cringe and that was obviously the message intended, it just doesn’t belong in a family friendly forum. I was only being straight up with you in case you wondered who reported the message.

    Thanks for all the replies. I have already tried a grinder with a 115mm slitting disc on another manifold (I have 2) and you just can't get in where you need to, to get nice straight cuts.

    I might look into one of those 'Sawsall' things Addjunkie. Cheers.

    You may also want to consider an oscillating "Multitool". I have the 350W mains-powered Fein MultiMaster version, and also a Lidl 20v cordless one. They will get in anywhere to do a plunge cut. For steel, you will need to use a very high quality bi-metal blade.
    They are also very safe to use. Apparently doctors use them to cut plaster casts off ...?
