A good friend hired my services to remove his aging patio cover in his backyard and he wanted to install a new garage kit. If you do not own a metal grinder the job can still be done using a reciprocating saw.

This post shows five steps on how to cut metal patio supports using a Dewalt reciprocating saw.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows Dewalt reciprocating saw with a metal Torch blade purchased at The Home Depot
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the Torch blade is cutting the metal pipe.
