Since Bobby is on the east coast, I'm going to assume he's gone to bed and take the liberty of posting his keggle cutting video. Any place that sells power tools will have the cutting disks.EDIT - Hey Bobby, where can I find any pics of the jig mentioned here? I'd like to see what that's all about -
Sure it can be done, people have absolutely done it. Stainless is hard and will dull the blade pretty quick. You probably will not be able to get as accurate of cut either.
I only used the hole saw as the pivot after scouring my garage for 15 minutes and finally finding something that fit snug, but still turned. I suppose anything with a 2" diameter could work....
Has anyone used anything on their jig besides a hole saw? I don't have any of those so I am not sure what I am going to use on my jib to allow it to rotate in the center. If I have to I will go buy some though. I am looking at this not just as some project but also an opportunity to build up my tool collection.
I have that set...the 2" saw will NOT fit in the keg opening. However, if you use it to cut a circular plug from a piece of scrap wood, the plug fits nicely and can be used in your jig.
I used it on one keg I did came out just as nice but you have to have a variable speed saw. The first blade went down in a shower of sparks . Go slow and it works great
Yeah I should have thrown those in my order. I will try to find someone with a hole saw to either use or cut me a plug. Maybe I will ask my old man to cut me something and mail it to me :cross:- Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices
$3.87 for a set of cheap hole saws, seeing as how you don't need to cut with them the quality issue is moot.
I've used both. I did one keggle with the saw and 2 with a grinder. The Grinder is much easier, much faster and will give a much cleaner cut. I'd never use anything but a grinder again.
