Re: cutting down aluminum masts

I have cut down several and have an easy way. I use wide masking tape and run a level band around the mast. I measure to make sure it is straight. I cut with a jig saw with a fine tooth blade. The rough edge in filed down by hand and cap installed. I mark the holes and drill away. I have had good results with this and it has kept me from replacing a mast.
