How to cut stainless steel railing

13598 Views 33 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  travlin-easy
I'm working on building a frame on which to mount my 3 solar panels. The design phase is working out well. I'm planning to use the premade corner, rail, hinge fittings.

But . . . what's the best way to cut the 1" SS rail tubing to the correct length? My choices include, hack saw, powdered Sawzall, a plumbers tubing cutter (where you tighten the wheel as you rotate the device around the pipe), electric grinder with a cutting wheel, or something else???

This SS rail stuff is really tough. Any words of wisdom out there?

There you have it, use something different for every cut & report back what works best.
