    Angle Grinder to Radial Chop Saw

    For this build used two old used shock absorber bottles into one pair of a parallel arrangement and an angle grinder 115mm.
    The grinder's traveling is 175mm.
    Before proceed to anything I had remove the hydraulic fluid from pressure tubes.
    Over the base at the left side I made a vise for straight cuts as well and a sliding cutting guide at the right side for straight cuts at zero degrees and bevel cuts at 45 degrees.
    My English is too poor to describe the whole process of this project and I will need too many hours for translating.
    So I will use some sort descriptions and of course I will answer at all questions to everyone.
    So please forgive me.

    Part1
    The two shock absorber bottles into one pair of a parallel arrangement.
    Pivot and bousings.

    Hi DIYer,

    I'm having some problems with the attachments.
    Suddenly the first ones begin to disappear and I need to reattach them.

    Regards
    Bill
