One thing about insurers that feature low rates as their main selling point (and I don't know if this applies to Geico in particular) is that they will drop you like a hot potato the moment you have any kind of a claim. I'm with State Farm, they are not the cheapest but I've never had any hassle

I don't have a plasma cutter so I've used a lot of cutoff wheels. Lately I'm enamored of the Diablo brand from Home Depot. They're very thin but well reinforced so they don't break real easy and have a thin kerf so they don't waste a lot. I bought a 10 pack 2 weeks ago and I'm glad I did...
