Electric Cutoff Tool ?

Although my compressor isn't bad it just doesn't have what it takes for tools that operate at 90 psi requiring a compressor that can keep up. Although spending more money for a bigger compressor is a solution...well kinda..An electric cutoff tool would work wonders.

I've looked on the internet...which I view as the place that you can find ANYTHING! But couldn't find one..I assumed they didn't exist until I saw Pauly on Orange County Chopper using one on a
bike he was building. Anyone got a lead where they can be found?

Thanks,

Keith

cutoff tool

I got a 41/2 inch angle grinder and i bought the cutoff wheels for it. Pretty much any of the big home centers sell them. I love my 41/2 inch grinders all 5 of them I got a diiferent wheel on all of them hope this helps.

Hey QC thanks..worth keeping in mind.

I don't own an angle grinder but I think the blade is parrellel(sp?)
to the body of the grinder right? The difference with the cutoff tool is the blade is perpendicular to the body, which for certain things gives you alot of control..

Thanks again,

Keith

I'll check it out Barry-I think I did see some kind of tool there..possibly made by Ryobi that had a cutoff tool "attachment".

I went to the Orange County Chopper website...and left them an e mail asking them if they could tell me where they got theirs..
Let's see if I get a response.

Thanks Barry

Keith

I have an electric cut off tool that has plenty of load speed. I bought it at Sears a couple of years back. It is an electric die grinder, 1/4" collet with more than enough power. I have a 1 horse air cut off die grinders as well as the normal .3 horse air die grinders. I got the larger air one from work and the smaller air cut off tools I purchased at specialty shops. I went for the electric since the smaller air tools do not have enough power (load speed) that I am used to at work. This electric has enough to hurt you, so if you buy one, be careful and do not use the deadman switch with a cut off disc on it. If it binds at high speed with the switch locked to the on position, you will not know what hit you...TRUST me on that one. I like it because I do not have to fire up my compressor for cutting one item, and like I said, it does not bog down much so it is very fast compare to most.

Another option is a RotoZip with a mandril in it. I think they even offer a model with a cutoff setup.

Now that I think of it..The Rotozip..is made by Bosch..does have a cutoff attachment....and infact I have seen it at home depot..The more I think of it though..any "Roto" type tool..with a mandrel to adapt a 3" cutoff wheel should work great..They've got the rev's...25,000-32,000.

I picked up a real nice real RotoZip kit on some kind of a closeout sale a year ago. It is nice because it is a variable speed unit. It is now in addition to my trusty $39 Harbor Freight one.
