Just wanted to say I bought some PVC pipe today :P I'm in Minnesota now so my mom and I are going to build a playgym, then disassemble it to fit in the suitcase. There is a saw here so I'll be able to cut. Can't wait!!!

It's not that easy to make a nice clean cut on the end of the pipe with a regular handsaw. If you want you can go back to the hardware store in the plumbing department and ask for a "Pipe cutter".

It looks like a C clamp with rollers and a cutting wheel on it. You tighten it on the pipe as you rotate it around the pipe. Slowly and very cleanly it cuts the pipe off with very little effort. It's a very cheap item. They use it to cut copper pipe but it works even better on plastic.

Depending on the size of the pipe you are cutting, they make a cutter that looks like a pair of garden pruning clippers. It cuts really easy and leaves a very clean cut.

I use a small bow-saw. It leaves a raggedy edge which I trim down with a snap knife.

My dad used his table saw (I think that's what it is, you move it down and it's electric??!) and it cut very nice. I have the gym sitting in the corner right now by where he plays. He is very scared of it now, etc etc. I need to hang it, maybe this weekend and attach some toys, then introduce.

Mine was when he was little. He started this "I'm going to be afraid of new things until they prove themselves harmless" in the last couple of years. He still loves to jump on new people. Only problem is if they're guys, and they're in our apartment, he sometimes wants to see how they taste frown
