    Low Dollar Track Cutter for Plasma or Oxy-Fuel

    Many years ago I fabricated this inexpensive track cutter using a Grainger gear motor and a model railroad transformer. One side had v grooves in the wheels so they could ride on an inverted piece of angle iron. I used it with an acetylene cutting torch. A cam type lever held down the cutting oxygen lever. Worked great!
