    Don't you use a lot of belts ? The cost of the belts can get out of line or no.
    There is a tool company that makes the notchers using hole saws, it is also nice and portable

    Hi G.Paul,
    So far I've only gone through a couple of belts. Because the belts are so long, there's a lot of abrasive area. Also, you shift it back and forth as you grind it away, so you spread the wear area out. If you drove it into the belt hard, then you'd blow out the belt.
    I don't like the hole saw tube notchers: they don't work well if you have to remove another 1/8" or change the angle slightly to get a better fit. I've used hole saws in the vertical mill, and while they work, I've never been impressed with their performance vs the abrasive tube notcher.
    Some guys will just use an angle grinder with a cut-off wheel and clean it up with a flapper disc and swear by it... I have done that too, and it works okay for small tubes, like 1" or smaller going onto larger tubes. But for the best fit-up, the abrasive tube notcher gives the best fit and best finish.

    Kent, I bought your plans for the Abrasive Tube Notched many months ago, as well as some other plans, and I finally can download them to use. Problem is none of them are giving me access to them & this is the first time I've tried. Can you please help me out? THANK you in advance. Dennis E McFarland

    Hi Kent,
    Just a suggestion for future modifications would be a locking swivel in the vice possibly like used on a lathe for accurate angles in the notches. otherwise it does seem very good design. if i can come up with a good bi-directional set up i will share it with you
