Cut Along...

The manufacture of the tube cutting jig, whilst progressing, is starting to grow arms and legs. I am eager to get on with the tube fabrication trials, and so I have decided to purchase a cutting jig for my angle grinder.

I had a comment on my last post from David, who suggested obtaining a small chop saw. Well David, you won, sort of. The Einhell jig I have ordered makes a standard 115mm angle grinder into a chop saw.

Here is a picture of the item in question:-

The idea is to bolt this unit to the bench and then cut the tube against a stop to give repeatable lengths.

Delivery is scheduled for tomorrow, so I will let you all know how I get on.
