Just wondering, how do you do that?

I just always drained as much oil out of it as I could then clamped it in the vise and used a hack saw.

After you get tired of that method, get you an oil filter cutting tool. It's not quite as messy and is a lot quicker.

wouldn't the hack saw put a whole bunch of metal in the filter so it would be hard to really deterine what was goin on?

Yeah, it would introduce a little foregin metal, but it was easy to tell the difference, and the metal from the cutting action won't be in the filter pleats.
