Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Material
Flat stock 2"
Round Bar dia. 12mm or 1/2"
Nut or better a coupler Nut
Screw quarter 20 by 1 1/2"
Step 2: Tools
Welder of some sort
Drill or Drillpress
Step 3: Cutting the Parts
I cut the Round Bar to 20 cm that will give me more than enough reach for my uses.
After that I cut a Square out of the 2" Flat stock and made a Circle out of it.
All the cutting was done with a 4 1/2" Angle Grinder
Step 4: Drilling the Nut Out
I used a 12 mm Drill to drill away the Threads in the Nut.
I used a Cordless Drill but a Corded one or a Drill press would work as well
Step 5: Drill a Smaller Hole
This hole gets threaded in the next Step to accept the Screw that holds the Fence ro the Bar
Step 6: Threading
The hole gets Threaded with the right Tap thats fits your Screw
Step 7: Welding
I welded the Nut on the Plate with my crappy Arc welder. It worked good enough for this after that I ground the weld to make it look at least a Little bit better
Step 8: More Drilling
Now I drilled a Hole in the End of the Bar thet will hold a Screw that will hold down the Little Round Blade
Step 9: More Threading
The hole in the End of the Bar gets threaded.
Sorry I forgot the Picture but ist pretty self explanatory.
Step 10: The Cutter
Now I cut out a Little Disc out of a Piece of old Sawblade and I drilled out the Middle.
Than I put on the shaft and out the Shaft in my Drill and sharbend the edge on my Angle Grinder.
Step 11: Assembly
Finally I just put it all together and Screwed the Cutter on the Top.
This is my first Instructable so its defenitly not perfect.
