    Default Just a quick query - Will a recip saw be any good for cutting studs?

    As above, need a stud trimming down. Will a recip saw with a metal cutting blade do the job? Would use a grinder but it's a tight space.

    Doing the job and doing it right... But yes it will likely handle it.

    I suggest screwing a nut on past where you intend to cut. Cut, file/chamfer end, undo but. Job done.

    Marcus I found a dremal with their own cutting discs is idea for the job. Even used it to cut a washing line ground spike down the other day.
