We like it when hacks are literal hack careers, place together with what is on hand to do a specific occupation. This brief and dirty angle grinder circle cutter unquestionably fills the invoice, and tends to make first rate cuts in sheet steel to boot.
The establish starts with an not likely source for components – an previous automotive AC compressor. The just one that [Built in Poland] chose to sacrifice was specifically awful and greasy, but following popping off the pulley, the treasure in just was exposed: the large, ring-shaped clutch electromagnet. Liberated from the compressor, the electromagnet was connected to a little body keeping a pillow block. That functions as an axis for an adjustable-duration arm, the other end of which holds a modified angle grinder. In use, the electromagnet is powered up by a little twelve-volt electricity supply, correcting the jig in place on the stock. The angle grinder is traced close to and tends to make a amazingly cleanse reduce. Examine out the establish and the software in use in the video clip under.
At the time [Built in Poland] recorded the video clip, he mentioned that he did not have a plasma cutter. That seems to have adjusted lately, so maybe he’ll swap out the angle grinder for plasma. And it’s possible he’ll motorize it for even smoother cuts.
