Need to cut stainless steel bolts - air tool or electric
need quick help from people with tool knowledge - have stainless steel bolts that are 3/8 inch diameter, 304 stainless steel
these bolts are in such a spot that they can only be reached with a reciprocating saw. Portable tools are all we can use as we are working on location, which is no problem because I can move them there with my F150
Logic tells me that a reciprocating air saw like Chicago Pneumatic manufactures which has 10,000 strokes per minute will cut through these bolts much easier than an electric tool such as a Milwaukee Sawzall which only has 2,800 strokes per minute
we have an electric sawzall and the job is tedious with this tool and we have 100 - 200 of these bolts to cut.
If the air tool is the route to go I will have to purchase the portable air compressor and the reciprocating air saw. If this air tool will make the job significantly easier it's a non-issue.
Does anyone have experience with a reciprocating air saw who could tell me how this tool could be expected to perform in this situation
