    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

    Very nice, Rick! Very simple to set up yet significantly increases the safety factor in using the tool. Definitely on my project list.

    Great mod Rick. Attachments like this adds versatility to the power tools without compromising much of their integrity.

    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.
