Re: cutting down aluminum masts

You folks are quite a wealth of knowlege. Thank you. The masts are set inside stainless steel brackets The ends of the masts are capped but on an angle that had plastic wedges placed under to level it out. My masts curently are three feet shorter as are the spreaders. This makes the cutting perfect. no rigging replacement no Chain aloft to extend the forstay. Im still open to suggestions. I have three feet to play with so I can practice cut it several times. Does anyone know if there is any bad news about not haveing an end cap welded to to bottom end?
