Here’s a unique way to cut a stud in a pinch
A circular or chop saw is the way to cut a bunch of steel studs, but when there are just a couple cuts to be made Joe prefers a quieter and less messy approach. He cuts both sides with snips and scores a line on the back. After bending the stud back and forth a few times, he ends up with a burr-free cut. No need for hearing protection and no metal shavings sticking to your boots. Caution: Steel studs and tracks are sharp. Joe is a pro—you should wear gloves.
