I used to use Fein oscillating tools with fiberglass boats. You can cut through the glass but it won't cut your skin. Here's a cheap version that would work for your application, http://www.harborfreight.com/oscillatin ... -8493.html along with this blade, http://www.harborfreight.com/3-18-in-mu ... 68914.html.

Done and done! I slipped an aluminum framing square underneath the cast and had at it with a dremel tool. It was way harder than I had anticipated. I almost had to recruit a neighbor for the assist! had to shovel out my tool trailer to fetch some tin snips to finish it off.

Freedom! :bananas:

Ace and tape for a while but at least now I can chose appropriate handware!

Good work! My paramedic wife said a pair of $10 medical shears would've done it too and then threatened me if I should get any brilliant ideas if I was in the same situation. :lol:

Chainsaw haha. Glad you got it off without another trip to the hospital. For any future casts. I bought this during a home remodeling project and it is the best tool I have ever bought.
