I really doubt your making money, especially after having to buy all those diamond blades. LOL

Re: Drywall Demolition


Since we're talking about cool bars i figured I throw this out there. Fastest i have ever ripped down drywall, plaster and lathe, wire mesh, etc. its a firefighters bar, so if you need to rescue anyone it will come in handy too..

But it's pretty heave and pricey.. Still a freakin sweet demo tool.

Make straight lines with your level and a pencil, cut repeatedly with the drywall knife. It's faster and cleaner than just about any power tool, just takes a little muscle is all.

Any store that carries Stanley products seem to have it. Hell, our Wal Mart here has the small version of it.
