I am cutting of the coil mounts on an axle with an angle grinder. I have cut out all the welds on the inside of the coil mounts but it is too tight to get my grinder in the outside. I dont have a torch or plasma cutter, any ideas. I looked cutting torches at homedepot but htey where in the 200 dolor range. is there any kind of torch that is cheaper, similar to a butane torch that can cut through metal???

thanks

Jeff

210 ARC WELDER TURNED ALL THE WAY UP with a few cutting rods will do it.(Puts alot of heat in the area though...not sure if you'd want that)

I take it you are trying to preserve the mounts?

Otherwise just chop em up and BFH em off.

Sawzall fit in there? If you can cut enough weld out you might be able to BFH them off and not do much damage.

Have fun.

Check on EBAY they usually have setups pretty cheap. Also try a cutoff wheel for your grinder. Buy a larger one than you need like 7" and take the guard off.

I used a 9" and 4" grinder, was able to reach everywhere I needed with out hitting anything else. Maybe get a cheap 4" grinder, run a disk down to 3.5-3" and use that?
