    I need to groove (larger cuts than a siping tool) my BFG Muds. Will buy if needed but would prefer a loan a tool mudship and I'll pay shipping both ways.

    A siping tool with a wide blade might work also.

    1/16 to 1/8. I am going to follow a pattern similiar to this. I might get away with some small pipe that is cut to a shaped edge and heat it if I have too, but a tool is safer and cleaner. [​IMG]

    I have a siping tool but never used it. Let me check it out and send you some pics to see if that will do it.

    This is a picture of the tool I have. I just need to check out the blade on it. I do not have the wire things but there is a blade on the end.

    That's it! IF I can borrow it, I'll replace any worn blades.
