There's nothing you can't do with those.

Bumper jacks can come in handy lots of other uses too.

Demo saw with a ductil/ferrous metals disc.

Or, use the Ironworker.

Failing that, 4" disc grinder with a cutoff wheel.

Failing that, sawzall

Failing that......you're fucked. Try a dremel.

You need to build a coffer dam or the thermite will just flow over the side of the engine. Trust me on this!!!

A appropriate number of wraps of Det-Cord will take care of a chain in short order. Leave the linear shape charges for more fun adventures like cutting safes apart.

Re-bar cutters work great. That's what we use at the hardware store to cut the hardened transport chain.
