Use this as the exercise to learn one of the most important aspects of working with metal. Making a straight cut with a hacksaw is elementary and NEEDS to be learned. The problem is people just hack through the tube-- pun intended. Hacking through it is 20 seconds cutting and 3-4 minutes to file or mill it level. Cutting it correctly is a minute cutting and maybe a minute filing. In the end it's time and effort saved.
