  • Dressing plate edges for welding

    Gents, found an angle grinder jig ( intended for tile cutting but needs must) that makes chamfering for vee prep on steel plate a little more pleasant and a lot less rough, and anything that helps getting nice even chamfers on steel up to 3/4” without sweat I like, as I said it’s intended for ceramic tile using 125 mm angle grinder but works nicely with a thin cutting disk on Ali or steel plate, also noticed a clever app for extruded Ali strut and 2 sawhorses in the shape of their bench I never thought of
    its limited in angles but a bit of file work to the angle slot increases the min/max as you need, graff do a carbide continuous rim metal disk that’s thin too, not cheap but outlasts abrasive on Ali and steel, in fact a saw blade for metal can be fitted and handled safely as I don’t like saw blades or the like on a loose angle grinder

    might make life easier as it looks fabri cobblable if you don’t fancy buying one
    you might need another project! Lol, fol what’s fol, fart out loud

    I like it. Decent champers are pretty easy for me. Ground many with a 9" grinder in 1/4" That sounds like a toy or something to me? It takes a lot of power to properly champher a 1/4" plate much less a 1/2" plate.

    Neat tool for the smaller pieces Ill bet. JR

      I think something like this will work better

          I like the plate bevelling machine, very robust, not sure how I’d bevel a 6’ x 3’ x 1/4 or 3/8 plate, think that’s its downfall really, the metabo is better but they wanted £1300 for one, I nearly bit the bullet but did it by hand, I was going to torch bevel as I have a track cutter but discovered the torch assembly ( the straight oxy/fuel torch with rack gear on) missing.

            You can use the Metabo idea to build one.

              I have no clue what you are trying to communicate.
              Are you posting intoxicated ?

                I think you have Boslab confused with another PWI ( Posting while Intoxicated) member.

                  I don’t drink, however if you are suffering intellectual fatigue i will elaborate, it is a way to hold onto an angle grinder to enable the person who has the misfortune of grinding ( or other means) a chamfer onto a steel ( or aluminium/ any metal) the metal remains stationary and the angle grinder traverses the work cutting a chamfer ( on the back) the mating plate is then treated giving you a proper vee prep that’s consistent allowing root and multi pass welding
                  both sides for twin operator or double vee.
                  I am sorry I failed to communicate it correctly

                      I like how the guy cuts the plate without any means to keep the line straight.

                        It looks nice but the video would have been a LOT better without that music. A voice description would be a lot better.

                        And I think I agree with Noitoen that his is probably better. The guide looks better with support on two sides. It would be nice for just deburring the rough edge after a cut as well as for welding chamfers.

                        And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
                        You will find that it has discrete steps.

                          My goodness, don't you watch Youtube? Guides are for sissies and wimps. Real craftsmen use dull magic markers to draw the lines and just follow them by eye. Need a hole in the center of a part? Just whip out that dull magic marker and eyeball it. Then off to the drill press. At least some of them actually use a punch first.

                          And their accuracy is so good that their gizmos never fail to operate better than anything you can buy.

                            Can you set it to 37.5°?

                              I would bevel plate edges at 38 deg. for welding,
                              However I do wear suspenders in the shop thus changing the angle somewhat, the standard Suspender Correction Factor is +.011 deg.
