Can't beat the price either, $39 at Lowes. I purchased it tonight for this project. I have one more keg to cut the top off and then I'm starting the polishing process tomorrow.

Brewstand arrives on friday from the metal fabricator!

I'm going to be getting akeg in a few weeks. Stupid question but why not use the guard as a jig and run it along the rim?

What if the rim around the keg is bent? If you look at the pic I just posted the rim on the top of the keg is flat on one side.

With a bent rim, you end up with a smaller circle. I cut one for a friend that had a very big dented rim. Best you can to is remove the guard, but if you've had disks fly apart, you won't want to do that.

I didn't even think of that. The keg I'm getting is a very clean dogfish keg. I'll make sure it's straight before I cut or else I'll just make a jig

I opted for the smaller opening. I did a dry run around a few times to confirm I had the arm extended as far as possible.

Heres a link to where I posted my version of a cutting jig..........Same principle, but for using a smaller, pneumatic grinder............Wade through the post , as I was patching the bottom ring of a mangled keg, and my jig is towards the end.
