    well ive got away with it for long enough. now i have to cut a hood chimney down in height and was wandering what way do you think is the best. i have cut holes in them before for flues with grinder and steel cutting disk.
    any ideas?
  2. You already given yourself the answer - grinder with a cutting disk.

    I support the chimney on a piece of wood, scribe a line and cut with the disk, than file away the burr.

    done it twice (cut a chimney hood that is) with a jigsaw, works fine. I just tape the surfaces to avoid scratches

    I've just done one with a jiggy, lots of masking tape first, then draw the line, then I supported the inside with a length of wood to make it rigid. Took my time, no problems.
