Harbor Freight will have this next month at their parking lot sale. Just $499.00 (compare to $100,000+):

 

Where can I get one so I can cut up cars of idiot drivers I see everyday on the 405 freeway

Is the above something that couldn't do with an angle grinder? (albeit, with a lot of sparks)

Greg.... ever demo stainless steel? How many disks do you think you'd go through just to cut that demo cut..... and angle grinders aren't that fast to cut anyways... look at the speed this guy was cutting and know the heat used to cut isn't imparted into the pieces cut or cutout (more easily handled) and there are no burrs or sharp edges produced by abrasives.... I could go on but that video is straight out of 50s Sci-Fi movies....

I'm sure thieves will invest heavily. Think chains, cables, padlocks, fences, metal doors.

Phil,
I know it's obviously much easier.

At 100K, vs. $30-$100, it better be.lol

Since we're on videos of lasers.... this is a concert in Japan where a hologram was used as part of the performance. If you think this is video look very closely at the camera shots made at angles to the stage and you'll see the depth and you can also see the seams in the mirrors where the hologram is generated.... 2013 is when this was done.... I couldn't tell the video where to end so kill it or you're going to see the remainder of the video (2hours+).... I doubt many here will... just watch the 1 minute from the start time....

Proposing using a $100 angle grinder on a job to help decommission an atomic power station means you don't understand the problem this is supposed to solve.

I get it, Phil.

I was being sarcastic.

I know you would never use an angle grinder.

I was just a little underwhelmed how slow it was working.

PS-what did they use in the past?

A torch?

I didn't see any mention of a power source. Generally, to make a curf that wide takes a lot of power, more than

an easily portable source can supply. I certainly would be happy to mount one on the front of my car, though.

I wasn't expecting anyone to use angle grinders to dismantle a big anything.

 

Still wondering... what did they use before?
