so I got one of these old well built map storage bins, my question is: it is 4 feet deep I would like to make it 20" 22" deep by cutting it in half......any suggestions on cutting it without completely dismantling it?

Track saw or other circular saw at full depth around the perimeter. Once that is cut acquire superhuman levels of patience and go from the inside of each map compartment and cut around the outside of each one with the M12 rotary tool. I'm just not sure you can fit an arm in there and see where you are cutting. Just spit balling ideas. If you were up to selling your kidney(s) I would say Festool sword saw. Alternatively you could use your new welder to make a jig to cut square and ride along a straight edge for a chainsaw.

well guys thanks for the suggestions, after thinking about this for awhile, I could not cut it straight in 2 pieces like I wanted however I decided to just cut it down to 35" high by 30" deep and just save the other good pieces for future projects.

BTW aside from cutting the outside with my M18 Fuel circular saw I cut each and every square face with my M18 multi-tool and as many cut as that was less than half a fully charged 5.0ah ......20161002_144336.jpg

Great job mate. That could have ended real messy.
