Recently used a Dremel Multimax (Fein knockoff). It's very noisy, gets hot quickly, but cuts door jambs fast and easy. It's no Fein, but for $99 it might be something to consider.

I can't get a second jack on a single line to work. Here's how it was wired (by an unlicensed pro, who seems to have dropped off the planet) and I hope you can understand the following description:...

Could this issue (pilot flame too intense-- it looks and sounds like a blowtorch) be caused by the gas valve? Is there anything else I should check before forking out the dough for a new valve?

Thanks for staying with this thread.

Does anyone know what kind of plastic they carry at Home Depot? I bought a 30" x 36" x 1/4" (or .220) sheet for $43.50 over there. For that price I'm guessing it's polycarbonate, but just wanted to...
