    4" square steel bar will be no fun with a dry cut carbide blade. The saw will not have the power to keep that many teeth engaged in the stock making chips. Carbide teeth may not be happy either as...

    I would worry about work hardening. At some point the pressure available will not be enough if drilling by hand.

    Rough it out with an annular cutter. I'll bet that as its a partial circle you could rough it with a decent hole saw. Plenty of chip evacuation with the open side. Bend it back straight before finish...

    You need to be able to accurately describe WTF you are looking for. That pic is not it.

    Seriously, I put 2 Jet brand air cleaners on top of mt VMC 300 and was done with it. Filters get changed every few years. But they are dripping by then and so what. They do look bad when changed, but...

    Thousands of pounds of that stuff every year. Your 60v saw will do fine with .250 and .375 if you use a very sharp triple chip blade. Very sharp any blade but triple chip is best. Positive rake too....

    Ah, make the profit on volume. Yup, done that on a few jobs. (do we have a bend over icon)
