To make it easier to cut sheet metal, you can use a homemade fixture — rail with carriage for LBM. In this review we will consider how to make fit.
The first step is to cut four equal length pieces of area. Do the layout and drill holes in them.
You may also be interested to read how to make the machine from the angle GRINDERS for cutting circles from sheet metal.
After that, using bearings and nuts and bolts, collect the carriage for the grinder. The distance between the exposed parts such that the carriage can move freely along the rail.
As a guide use square pipe. Cut rod to the desired length (the length of the desktop).
In the next stage of the metal pieces and produce round pipe mount for the grinder. Trim the welds.
Next, you need to weld the bracket to the elongated coupling. Screw-on nut on the stud, which is attached to the carriage.
Then will only have to make two supports for the rail, which will be located at the edges of the table. Paint basic details and you are ready to build.
