Cutting on the inside of a 40+ year old waste line sounds like lots of fun.
I'll stay outside and finish off with a Diablo blade.

I know it sounds horrible but it's not bad at all. However, those diablo blades are nice.

Rigid press tool with the cast cutter has better luck with old cast. It cycles fast so the shock is localized to the cut area.
