Hey /diy/, how would you recommend I cut this where my fingers are? I have access to a metal shop but haven't been in there for about 4 years. It's stainless steel.

With a hacksaw.

Gun bluing to stain the metal and laser?

Do you think I could use a metal band saw? Also how do you think I could clean up the cut edges?

A file or some grinding paper. I'd go with an angle grinder, it's much easier.

But I suppose you could use a metal band saw, but they move fairly slowly, and your soup stirrer or whatever looks fairly unwieldly, so clamping it down might be difficult.

>>886085
Yeah, or a hacksaw.
Just give it a quick once-over on a belt sander to smooth the edges.

Thank you everyone! I will be going in next week to work on it. I'm cutting this and attaching it to a 12v generator to power a lamp. Hopefully it works out.

You're going to want to cut it below that support piece your fingers are above or it will fall apart. Trust me on this.
>>
>>886105
Oh right. Duh. Thank you
>>
>>886106

Cut it anywhere you want.

Make a new cross bar to support the shaft and extended it.

Don't forget your bearings.

>cut this where my fingers are?

I always try to cut where my fingers aren't.

You haven't been there in 14 years because that's where you were conceived? Cool story
