    The whole tool is excellent and the narrow slot idea is a really good safety feature. If I was to make one I would consider extending the work rest an equal distance to the left hand side so that longer pieces can be laid across the rest.
    It would mean chopping off the top of the left side vertical box section to extend the tool rest, but when done would allow you to cut say a 1 metre or more length of steel in half.
    Another quick thought would be to make the tool rest table of angle iron with the narrow slot cut in the flat and vertical section of the angle so that the cut off blade is almost totally enclosed when viewed from the front. If the grinder guard was then adjusted down to touch the vertical section there would be less chance of a disintegrating wheel doing any damage.
    edit: The vertical of the angle rest would also serve as a backstop to keep the cuts square.

    Hola Factor..bueno el accesorio, y como mencioné en otro post, sería bueno (por lo menos para mi) un pedal de arranque-parada con un swich con sistema de seguro por arranque imprevistos, muy bueno, hasta pronto.
