My two cents. Do NOT use harbor freight disc. They are cheap and dangerous. I've had them explode on me while I was notching a truck frame. Thank god I wear safety glasses and a face shield. I got some decent ones from Lowes. Under $2 a piece.

Hey Cap'n, easy does it. Ugly junk is a generic HBT descriptor. It means "your junk is ugly". See? Not so bad afterall.

Anyhoo, really, your keggle cut is ugly, and I know that won't effect your beer in any way, but it's ugly.

I'm not attacking Cap'n. Just having fun. You've never seen the original UGLY JUNK sawsall keggle. That would make you feel better. I'll see if I can find you a motivational poster. Stand by.

You have to have a special talent to get junk that ugly.

I actually buy DeWalt 4.5" cutting discs for my grinder. IME, they do a great job and don't explode during use (that can't be fun). You can also get them from Amazon (love the free shipping via my Prime account ).

As for captwalt and his comment of "But every self respecting man has a sawzall"... Nope, not gonna buy it. I don't have one, my father never had one (never needed to buy one) and he could fix just about anything we had (mechanical). I do have three right angle grinders though. One set up for polishing (don't care if I kill it). Another [the newest one] corded that I use to make all my metal cuts. With a third that's cordless. The second and third are DeWalt tools. I also have a disc cutter that's air powered (since I have my bigger compressor now, I can use it as I wish) and a right angle die grinder.

BTW, no man worth his salt is without an air compressor.

BTW, passedpawn... That's 'one ugly mother F... '

You're supposed to wear protection... Seriously, I always have at least some level of eye protection and ear protection when using tools like that.

BTW, I bet your cuts still look better than what BierMuncher did.
