    torch cutter bar roller guide

    When making straight cuts ,I use a 1" round bar and use this roller guide. It holds the torch against the bar and at the right cutting height. The roller reduces drag.

    Nice! What are your thoughts about using a lighter tube? I was thinking of making it lighter but was wondering if the heavier bar weight is an advantage?

    I have had problems with lighter material getting warped from the heat.
