    Who would have guessed that a hack saw would make this project so much easier haha.
    I'm building my second dock. This time its for Howard. I cut all my pipes in under 10 minutes (and that includes cleaning up after) instead of hours with a steak knife haha

    Here is the new dock and ramp. This one was much faster since I now have a hack saw and some more drill bits. Took under 30 minutes including clean up.
    Right now Howard is afraid of it...

    my tool collection has increased massively over the past bit (percentage wise), but I could always use more tools and money so go for it Robert!

    Very cool basking dock! Home Depot and Lowes sells PVC pipe cuttting tool for $20 or so. That's what I used to cut my pvc pipe for my DIY overflows.

    Wow that's expensive! Wonder If you could order one online and have it shipped to you.

    I may look into it once I had a house and whatnot. I don't know what else I will be cutting in the next bit. The saw really helped. I imagine the PVC tool would be even better
