I found a Mac amt 300 air cutoff grinder at flea market.The wheel tilts toward the air valve or away or strait.It seemed a little bulky,BUT ,since I bought it ,it is the only one that I will use .It is a great tool and I only paid $30.I wish that I could post a picture of it ,but I cant.Edwin

Can you say a bit more about this Mac cut-off tool.

What is there about it that makes it the only one you
will use? Does the ability to off-set the head come into
play?

I think Keith Fenner has a video where he used that same exact tool. I remember seeing the tilting head and thinking it could be useful

Yes you can.

No, he can't. He may post pictures, but until he learns how, he can't.

Which is what he posted.

Ain't good grammar a wonderful thing?

a buddy of mine has one of those, definitely nicer than straight or 90 degree ones... funny how the little extra clearance you get(without resorting to big diameter discs) allows so much more freedom...especially cutting sheetmetal- but I still use the old 4 1/2" grinder with a cutoff disk for chopping pieces out of car sheetmetal at home- if i wasnt so cheep i'd get the Mac cutoff too- its one of those tools that if you try it you'll want it... sears has these 'max axess' socket sets that I absolutely fell in love with too- far better than any of the sets ive collected the last 30-40 yrs, and since trying it(originally got one for oldest son for Christmas 2 yrs ago- since bought other 3 sons, myself, and a buddy the same set...try them, think they should become a 'standard'. only gripe with them is buy extra extensions :)
