A simple cut off saw.


Since I don't really need a metal cut off saw all that often, and I have little room for more tools, I cobbled this together. It's just an angle grinder, and a sled. The sled is constrained by runners, so it moves in a straight line.
The Cutting blade is close enough to square to the table for my purposes.

I tried it out by cutting a hollow steel rod at 45 degrees, and then flipping the parts to join them at 90 degrees. It works just fine.

Yes, that is an old bread board.

I did a similar thing only I mounted a table saw blade on the grinder. My Makita grinder had the same size arbor as a table saw
