Add-On "Clamp" Lets Cutting Torch Work With Precision
Cutting perfect circles and straight lines is easy with the help of these add-on "clamp" attachments that are designed to attach to any cutting torch, says Accu-Cut, Pretty Prairie, Kan.
Three different clamp-on attachments are available to cut small circles, large circles, and straight edges from almost any metal. To cut a circle you tap a center punch into the surface of the metal to make a dent, then stick the pointed end of the circle cutter into it which allows the torch to work like a pro-tractor. The straight line cutter consists of a roller that you place against the edge of the metal and roll as you cut.
"It lets you cut with a smooth finish and is guaranteed to within 1/32 in. accuracy," says inventor Bill Shippen, who notes that he will also soon offer a fixture to cut saddles in pipe.
All three clamps sell for a total of $35 plus S&H.
