    Re: Stupid kills

    I could see some instances where that would be safe and practical, like ice or foam sculpture, as a roughing bit...

    Not at ten thousand RPM

    It's probably maxed at five hundred or a thousand

    Rumor has it that someone uses this pretty often for aluminum

    Re: Stupid kills

    I remember thinking the first time I saw one of these "Lancelot" blades for a 4.5" grinder...."Man, there's a bad idea". After watching a friend use one I mustered up the courage to give it a go myself. Turned out it wasn't nearly as hairy as I was anticipating it was going to be.

    Normally I don't like to have the guard on my 4.5" grinder but if I was going to be using one of these on it I'd definetly take the time to re-install it.

    Re: Stupid kills

    I used to use them in a much higher tooth count for cutting panels off cars and such. Pretty easy to cut straight with. They work well but I don't think I've ever seen one used w/20 teeth. Noisy things to use for sure.....

    It was the smallest wheel I could find at the time and the tooth count works good for aluminum.

    Had to drill out the hole to accept a bushing, but other than that it fits good - thinking about making a guard for it so it doesn't look so "wrong."

    But I've been thinking about it for a few years already, so it may not get made for a while.

    I'm told there are abrasive blades I should use instead - just have not seen them at the local hardware store to try them out.

    Re: Stupid kills

    I never could get along cutting aluminum with an abrasive blade. went though a lot it seems to make a lengthy cut but a fine tooth carbide "zip wheel" walked through it. Used to do quite a few aluminum bodied school bus and delivery van type vehicles and plasma was too hazardous to use in the application.

    ha! Yeah one time, way back in high school, my teacher freaked the hell out because apparently I was just 4 inches away from slicing my thumb off. We love our tools but yeah following instructions wouldn't hurt.

    Gina;

    Minnesota Dave had exclusive rights to post pictures like this. That is, until he went all respectable on us. I think his were photoshoped too, especially those where he was in the picture.

    Do I see the shadow of male genitalia on that creature I believe to be female? Might this trans gender stuff have gone too far?

    How the Hell did she get that shirt on without ripping it on her horn?

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    I didn't create this image, but, yes, you are observant! I didn't even notice it was a male horse they used. LOL And, logistically, getting dressed might present a problem. You cracked me up this morning.

    It's was painted on, that's how. Take a closer look. Real good work with an air brush.

    I feel kind of dirty. I shouldn't be analyzing so much. There are tiny puckers in the fabric at her right forearm. It fits GOOD, but there is profile at the bottom of the shirt.

    Re: Stupid kills

    These work pretty good:

    http://www.kwiktoolusa.com/badblades.aspx

    The C-7 is excellent on Al and the Bad Blade Carver is better than the lancelot on wood, IMO, for detail. As long as you stay away from corners the C-7 is excellent for tack removal without a guard. I would not recommend their use with a paddle switch.

    There used to be a blade made by Credo, 7-1/4" that had only eight teeth that was about the best longest lasting blade and cheap for AL use that I've ever used. Alas they stopped making them years ago but I found an old stash at a welding supply and bought every one of them (12). I'm down to my last one that is now a 'legacy blade' and will be passed on someday. I've used them in a 9" grinder for those 'special' remodel occasions. Not for use at the end of the day or if you're feeling a little out of kilter but the shallow tooth confirmation and the large disc with tight clearance made them not prone to kickback.

    OH! I forgot to add that I have a 4-1/2" grinder with one of these Credo blades on a 10' collapsible pole that is the absolute bee's knees for limbing spruce trees. Will whack a 2" limb in about two secs. It's oriented to cut from top down to prevent binding.
