How can I cut a plastic soda bottle without special tools?

I have some old soda bottles that I’m going to use as plant pots. The thing is that I don’t have a sharp utility knife to cut the tops off.
I don’t think a kitchen knife is sharp enough to do the job.
Does anyone have an idea how I can cut these bottles with every day ordinary items around the house?

you don’t need a very sharp knife just a serrated one. You can always make the first hole by heating a screwdriver on the gas and melting a hole, then you can cut with a pair of good scissors.

What tools are needed to change the oil filter on a 2010 Toyota RAV4? Any special tools?

It is just an element and oil rings.
The nearest dealer is 60 miles.
This is not the usual filter.
There is a permanent filter housing.
The filter is not a spin off-on filter but a filter element.

I have a 2009 rav4, I purchased a 65 millimeter cap wrench.

Is it OK to work alone with power tools?

My job involves working in private homes and I have to use power tools (240v). Quite often I am left alone all day while the customer goes out to work etc. regarding health and safety at work, is it legal for me to be doing this?

Yes of course it is. We might have a Nanny state in the Uk but we do not have work in twos just in case someone hurts themselves.

How do you remove a crank and a cassette without special tools?

So I’ve been salvaging my old bike just for kicks and giggles, and I’ve been able to take apart everything (including derailleurs) except for the crank and the cassette. How do you remove these?

Removing a cassette requires two Special Tools. One is the adapter that fits the lock ring. The other is a chain whip. Lots of mechanics make their own chain whips. There isn’t a lot to them. There are lots of videos on youtube about how to remove and reinstall a cassette.

Removing a crank may call for special tools. Usually it’s just a 10 mm allen wrench. If it’s a Shimano crank, the service manuals are online. Look there first.
