    If I get going On tea with a larger scale then my 5 gal bucket starter, I will use my old sap dump barrels...there old apple juice containers, approx 40 gal with a screw on lid

    There must be a sugar refinery in Ontario. They will have regular black strap molasses. Feed stores often have black strap molasses made from cane (unsulfered)

    a CNC machine would be even safer, but I had the saw i climb with in hand at the time. a roto zip is also a good option.........

    I have a Rotozip ... not sure if you could control it on a cut like that. I was cutting out speaker templates with it last night. :)

    What are you using for your climbing saw?
