    That is very nice of you @GHOST SHIP for helping him find a way to keep his truck longer! Especially when he is not ready to let it go.

    Ive been going to that taco spot since I moved to the area- small family run business and a lot of the people that work there know me as a regular if they don’t know me by name. They struggled a lot last year during COVID and almost shut down so it didn’t feel right to charge him for what ended up being a quick job to help his mobility. If you’re ever in the area, stop by and tell em I sent you.

    My wife just walked and saw the photo; She commented that they looked liked dogs. I replied, 'They are, one of them is sniffing the others' butt!

    Nice work!

    New dedicated cordless Milwaukee rotary tool to use for tungsten grinding. Was kind of a hassle using my corded dremel.

    Students sometimes run out of time to finish welding projects so I grab them outa the trash and make sure I remember how to earn a living. I dont get to weld much anymore but got a solid 5’ of practice on this one.

    might not really be applicable but i figure anyone here would have the most experience.

    i need a good metal cutting disk for a dremel. the generic ones keep shattering/breaking and id like to make a cut without going through 10 of them

    I buy the Dremel branded ones, they are expensive. With a light touch they seem to last ok.
    I don't use the Dremel much but when you need to work a minor miracle it is the go to tool.

    Ill give them a try. I was cutting between two drilled holes to make a slot and just not something a 4in grinder was going to do.

    You can get small cut off wheels for die grinders that will probably do a better job than a dremel.

    @Sacrifice Slow and steady will help with the Dremel cutting disks; also have to keep the tool at a constant angle, ie don't pivot the tool in any direction around the cutting disk. Both hands on the grinder and guide for your hands helps (sort of like welding). I'm still trying! :annoyed:

    How thick is the iron?

    Metal cutting blade in a jig saw works pretty good for making slots.
