    This is a pretty amazing attachment you have come up with. I would imagine that if you made up a parts kit, so people could weld their own, they would sell like hotcakes. If you ever do decide to sell them, please let us know. I would be in for one at least. Hell even if you were to put up a measured drawing, I would pick one of those up. Great work.

    Thanks!

    Here's the attachments.
    Pipe cutting tool and the grinding rest.. This prototype fits to pipes between 50-125mm diameter. Planned for jobsite work. Makes possible to cut straight without need to remove pipe etc.. My goal is to make bigger one for the pipes over 200mm diameter. That would be very helpfull at my work.
