    Angle Grinder Table Saw

    This project is an attachment to an angle grinder which turns it into a small table saw. Works great for cutting heavy gage sheet metal into small pieces with reasonable accuracy and improved safety. For details, please see

    The original idea came from R.J. DeCristoforo of old Popular Science days. He wrote a book on hand power tool attachments. Although he worked in wood, the ideas easily translate to metal.
