it's kind of like how you would with a cutt off wheel, moving it back and forth, but since it's a belt it's subtle and more thorough. It cuts thru welds really well. Then you change belts to the fabric type prep belts for spot welds or before you plug weld. They're really nice.

I also decided to stick with the spot cutter drill for works. When there's a welding job I can go to the front and ask for a bit and give them the RO number. For home use/side jobs, I wouldn't use it though. The bits are just too pricey.

They can hit the streets downtown with the rest of the bums.

Now if you have any illegal Mexicans, I could use a couple of them. I know they will work hard at least.

There are none hanging around out in the HD parking lot for hire up here.

deadbodyman Maybe less Puggs. From what I hear theres going to be a lot of American help moving to Canada, All democrats though, you might not be able to get much work out of them, but at least they can tell you what it is your doing wrong and how it should be done. and when that don't work they can show you how to blame everyone else when it things don't go right.

On another Note you said a year away from moving in? I thought you were coming down the home stretch..
Thanks.

2 months to moving in and then another year to go after that.

Thanks.

I would also like a nice porch to sit on.
If you look at the first pic, you'll notice that I live on one of the busiest streets in town. It was just widened to 3 lanes and I'm sure the 4th lane will be coming soon putting the street about 30' from my porch. Too noisy to sit out there.

The whole thing is to just make the house appear more heritage.

My mistake.

As for spots, just grind right thru the sheet as you're usually chucking the piece that you're cutting thru.

What I want to know is, how the heck a belt sander replaces spot weld cutters and drills.
I never said it would replace the idea of cutting perfect circles around welds when you know you're gonna reweld it back in. I'm saying blair rotabroach spot cutter bits that you put on drills coupled with the mini belt sander, there's no need for me to have a spot cutter drill anymore. My air drill has variable speed, the blair spot cutting bits last a long time, and they work especially good on HSS. The spot cutter drills for the most part do not have variable trigger and you are cutting thru HSS not around it. You do a radiator support with a new bit and you have to use a bunch of cutting oil making a mess of things cause it spins so darn fast. With my IR variable speed drill I can make one rotabroach bit last 3-4x longer with no cutting oil by cutting at reasonable speeds. Each bit costs around $7. A spot cutter bit costs $23. Sure, they work great when the bit is new but I always need a bit. Not a problem to get the bits though. We can charge a bit to every job where there's spot welds that need to be addressed.

As long as the excavator is there, yeah, that's the easy way. We had to use an auger and after 4 ft of fighting clay and rocks, that was deep enough..
