Best way to cut a section of CSP culvert? The steel is surprisingly thick stuff

Angle grinder? Dunno what's best but that's what I've always used. That or pic related.

Post it on craigslist free and say that people can have a 11" section if they cut it off themselves

>> No.2413479

If you put anything for free on Craigslist, expect the meth-heads to show up with shopping carts and strip everything down to depths that rival a quarry. I put some leftover landscaping materials on Free one time and I swear this pack of chromosome-impaired mutants showed up and scalped the lawn down to raw clay and stone. They literally took the top soil, nearby plants, dividers, sprinkler heads, and mulch in a 20' radius. Scavengers.

Best to stand outside with a shotgun ans blast mutants if they get too handsy.

Wait they stole your fucking top soil? Like their plan is to sell 3ft or whatever of top soil now?

I am not joking, exaggerating, etc.

>Listed landscaping extras as "free" on Craigslist
>Get a poorly written email asking about it all, we agree on a date and time
>These backwoods mutants showed up with two shitbox pickup trucks several hours before we agreed, and I wasn't home at the time
>Bastards took everything that wasn't nailed down, including top soil in our new garden beds
>Only reason I know they had two pickup trucks is that my neighbor took pictures from his house and sent them to me
>I got home, saw the destruction, called the police
>That did absolute shit-squat
>Two days later the same trucks were spotted at a new house 5 or 6 lots down, all appliances stolen overnight
>Sent the email to the police, they said the CL email proxy makes it impossible to trace
>I took a 4x6 timber and put 10" spikes in it, laid it down along the curb at the road vietnam style and covered it with mulch
>Set out some juicy yard tools with a security wire leading to a fence post
>Dumb bastards drove up on the lawn, punctured their tires, DROVE OFF down the road and got caught by the police

Angle grinder and cutoff wheels if you want a nice straight smooth cut. Torch if it can be a bit jagged. If you are using it as an actual culvert then leave it long for extra width. People always make their culverts too narrow...
