I think they're all the same dimensions; its a pretty standard thing. I'd get whatever is cheapest, honestly.

Yeah, if you use both sides of the clamp, you can have a failure and it still doesn't fly apart. Honestly, its not as bad as people say. Just don't be dumb.

Right on. Princess Auto have an awesome pipe cutter which works well for this purpose. Kind of works like a pizza cutter or copper water pipe cutter. You can easily cut 90* corners into whatever angles you need.

You must be getting excited!

I have a 14" metal saw but it didn't make accurate cuts at all, so if you have trouble getting a smooth clean edge, check out the PA cutter. It made cuts cleaner than a factory cut edge.
