Turntable for cutting perfect circles with a cutting torch
One of the best farm shop ideas I've come up with is a turntable I made for cutting perfect circles with a cutting torch. I needed something to speed up making burners for the waste oil stoves I build in my spare time. I welded a disc blade to a short length of 3/ 4-in. rod which turns inside a piece of 3/4-in. pipe. A piece of strap iron is welded to the side of the pipe so I can clamp it to a work table. A short spacer is placed on the turntable to raise the work up for cutting. I use blocks of wood to hold the torch in cutting position. (Kirk Deardorff, Box 164, Hale, Mo. 64643)
