Zee Tool

Very Simple Tool ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
This is the tool that I mentioned earlier and I found it in a unique bargain store with a unique name - Super Cowboy.

The yellow part is the handle and it is made of plastic. The black blade is a piece of hacksaw blade and it goes into the handle. The lenght of the exposed part of the blade can be adjusted by losening the wing nut at the end of the handle.

I got it yesterday and on the way back home I had to drop by at my mum's place to answer plumbing emergency call. Her plastic stop cock head broke and water was gushing. With the new tool in hand I used it to saw the PVC pipe and had the stop cock replaced. It worked and it is real cheap!!

OK the expected cost so far:
1 pc 200 litres Drum = $45
5 pcs 25 litres cans = $20
I pc Funny Hand saw = $3.90
1 pc 600litres/hr submersible pump = ?
PVC pipes and fittings = ?

Hi KK,
Is the large tank open at the top? What I'm getting at is what part of the tank gets cut, top or side? If it's the top, will the bottom of the tank be too dark so that the fish will not like to swim there?

Looks like a useful tool KK.

Hi Jerry, thanks for your comment. The tank is closed on the top with two access holes for the contents. I'll be posting how I'll prepare the tank in a minute and please let me know you idea because I do not want to make a wrong cut!

Frank, I am still keeping my fingers crossed that would be the right tool for the job. So far it works great for piping work.
