My Makita was very handy in tight spots, using the metal cutting blade reduced the burrs. During freezing weather, that's all I used for installs.

It's always handy to have a piece of mason's line around to use as a saw in a pinch.

Hmm, might be the topic for a new thread - things used instead of real tools...

A marking flag instead an allen wrench, for adjusting a Super600?

Sawzall is good for trimming valve boxes, yes. Jumps around too much for my taste cutting pipe though, especially when using your knee/leg as your saw horse.

Sawzall leaves pipe messy. I use a hand saw on anything over 2" or chop saw. I have a ratchet cutter for under 2". I think it is from Pasco.
