    Anyone in the sac area that can help?

    Im fabricating some sliders, however I need to cut some square stock up for the legs. It's 4 cuts, at a 15* angle.

    I was going to use a cutoff wheel and a grinder... But it seems very inaccurate.

    I'm looking for either someone who can help cut (I'll drive to you) or a shop that can cut it for me.

    I have an angle gauge, and marked everything out already.

    The angle grinder just... Seems inaccurate to use lol. I'm used to a saw with a metal blade, or a band saw lol. Worst case ill make a jog of sorts to hold the grinder lol

    Even if you’re off by a little bit, you can make it up with how you fit it up when assembling.

    If you’re unsure about keeping lines straight with an angle grinder, just clamp a piece of angle iron on it as a guide.

    I agree with you. I used an angle grinder and man my cuts and measurements were not good. It’s usable but you can tell it’s obviously not squared. For my first project…not to shabby.
