From the Front Lines of Metal Cutting
Just a few weeks ago an Air Force Base was preparing planes for destruction. They were looking for a 9″ (229mm) angle grinder to remove depleted uranium counterweights from some transport planes in preparation for sending them to the scrap yard. The current grinder did not have sufficient depth to cut out a 3″ (76mm) deep aluminum support bracket. When our sales rep showed up with a 9″ M.K. Morse Metal Devil Saw he was met by a skeptical group of technicians. They graciously allowed him to give it a try. After 20 minutes getting into full PPE gear (Tyvek suit, respirator, gloves and fall protections) and being lifted 50 feet into the air, he was ready to cut. With the right saw for the job, the cut took a lot less time than getting into the gear. Record time as a matter of fact!
