    I am cutting out a grill and replacing it with a mesh style grill. I need to cut out the mid section to do so.

    But seeing as i don't do projects like this often i just want to rent a tool from a local. Rather than investing into something i probably won't use ever again.

    Any ways If you would be kind enough to rent one out to me with your conditions please contact me.

    I can offer a deposit
    photo copy of my i.d.
    collateral etc...


    Thanks
    Ruben

    You gotta know someone who will lend you some tools for free. Renting from Home Depot is dumb...$20 my ass.

    Oh really? I'll have to look into that.

    I'm not sure. My truck was in an accident so they are still writing up an estimate for the insurance. So hopefully I'll have it by the weekend. And I'll have to keep an eye on the weather.

    I'll keep you updated.

    I don't know if Justin (undifined taco) will make it. He has most of the tools.

    Not yet. I couldn't find the $10 Dremel on the website. Only a $25 one.

    If all you need to do is cut a tiny but of material, a hacksaw with a fine tooth blade should do the trick (as long as you have enough room to cut). That's gonna be less than $10 at HF.

    I'm knocking out the whole mid grill. I do have a hacksaw already but that wouldn't be ideal.

    I'd bite the bullet and buy the dremel... Once you own one, you'll find plenty of uses for it! They're incredibly handy little tools. I've used mine several times to split a stubborn, rusted on nut or cut bolt heads, etc.

    Dremel isn't really a tool that is meant to be rented out, as it would be subjected to way too much abuse by too many different folks. Or find a nearby buddy to let you borrow one (and give you some discs :) ).

    You may just want to get one, although one of the smaller variety kits for yourself. If you have a dog, it can double as the best, most painless way to trim its nails down using the drum sander, or even precisely sharping lawn mower blades.

    Yeah i'm going to run down to the HF store and check it out.


    But i don't have any dogs, nor a lawn mower. If i can find one for less than $20 i may pick it up.

    And Randy i'll look into a cut off wheel. Thanks
