Thanks - Exact Fab seems to have closed, I guess I'll have to pay up with one of the others.

no problem using a grinder left or right handed, but i have a problem being chased by one after it kicks and it then gets dropped

So, Dude, if you saw this coming toward you you would do what exactly?

I think a thread on Grinder-Fu is needed?

L.I.J.O (Asylum) is moving the grinder back towards himself, while the disc rotation is spinning in the opposed direction.

you might need to take on the teacher role there and show the best way is side to side not infront of you going away and back towards the stomach area

sideways youwould have no real control if it did kick - there is no trick to it - it just takes hours of it in your hand till you are comfortable with the tool and know what it feels like.

Don't recommend it tho :jpshakehead:

I do this shit for a living, and have done for the last 20 odd years. Yeah, I've taken liberties with power tools and I have the scars to prove it :jpshakehead: I've also seen the damage a kicked-back and flailing angle grinder can do to the human body, no matter how comfortable the user was with it.












I keep the guards ON! They're there for a fucking good reason!!

Gotta agree with Tragic, I been usin em for years with guards on and off. I've had several kickbacks but only one without the guard ....

I was very lucky in hindsight, it took the glove right off my hand and jammed itself ..... if it hadn't I'm pretty sure my kids wouldn't exist ....

Leave the guards on  :banghead:

Slow progress, would've like to got the lower mounts sorted but! Rain forced a Retreat to the garage for today.


Pinion Angle set-up


Start of Uppers crossmember.


Xmember glued into place for set-up (basic shape, will be fettled with at a later date) Should be 10 1/2" of separation between upper and lower links. Upper links are gonna be mounted on the front face of the xmember,


These Clarke Plasma Disc are crap! One cut through 50mm box and its done for :jpshakehead:


Chassis mounts mock up:

Istead of meesing around with angle grinders to cut your steel, toddle off down to B&Q and get one of those Evolution Compound sliding mitre saw. They have a general purpose TCT blade that cuts through box section like butter. They cost about £90 and it is probably the most useful tool I have ever bought.

Will post photos of it and what I have cut with it if you are interested.

I have the an Evolution 10" Blade compound saw cost me £180 but its already saved me more than than that in time and accuracy, new blades are about £30, and it cut damn near anything.  Cut 3mm 50mm box no trouble and also 1/4" x 8" plate.

Cheers

Got an Evolution from Machine Mart on VAT fee day

Did my rock sliders with it. Cut the stuff for rear bumper before welding and have just cut about 100 metres of 20mm round bar and 6mm x 30mm flat bar for steel fencing all stuff that would not be accurate with a cut off disc.
