So I managed to get the tops cut off this morning. It's a good feeling, progress. My manly assistant, Tut(as in King Tut), decided to join in on the pictures.
1 or 2 Stainless/Metal 4 1/2" Cutoff wheels
1 Metal Grinding wheel 4 1/2"(Barely used it, needed to roughly smooth the cuts)
1 Flap Sander Disc 4 1/2" 40 Grit(Used for starter sanding)
1 Sheet 150 Grit Sandpaper(Used to hand sand the edge to a smooth finish)
All in all, I ended up with a VERY smooth edge on the kettle. Won't have any cut arms or snagged shirts. Woot!
Now I just have to clean them and move on to the next stages....slowly, but surely.
