I guess you have to be extra careful.
I remember your pics, I searched for them but I guess you moved then because they were dead links.

That happens a lot. When I really dread doing something I do all I can to avoid it. When it is done I say, "Hmm, that wasn't nearly as bad as I thought."

As straight and square as the cut line is, I'll bet they used a hydraulic shear. There is no way you could cut something like that on a jump shear, the treadle would have to be like 4ft off the ground to get enough travel.
Thanks for the tips and suggestions! The metal will live in the back of my truck till I can get to it this weekend. Besides, I really don't have anywhere to store it. This week I have to work at a factory across town, it's further away so I'll be driving the Civic anyway.
