Hey, I am liking the bumper.... thinking about making one up myself but i was just wondering, How did you cut out the holes for the D ring mounts? with a cutting wheel on the angle grinder or what?

Yep, all my cuts were carefully made with an angle grinder with slitter disks. I want to pick up a chop saw soon but I'm a long ways off from getting myself a plasma setup which I'm sure would make the job a piece of cake.

Don't know anything about kerf discs. I was just referring to the thin metal cutting discs. I normally use Dewalt cutting discs because I can grab them at the local Lowes. I'v heard mrblaine mention that he favors Sait .045" cutting disc for quick cuts and best life. I'v yet to try them.

Anyone else have recommendations for a good 4.5" dia cutting disc?

I just went out and bought a 1/8" and a .045" disc for my 4.5" grinder..... I also got a little spacer made by dewault, It allows the 1/8" disc to fit in without any play but the .045 disc wabbles a little bit and i dont want to use it like that...


How do you guys get a .045 disc in ur 4.5" grinder? i have a makita if that helps?

I have Makitas also and use .045 Nortons & Sait cut off wheels in my 4.5" grinder regularly.
Are you using the spacer that came with the grinder that the cut off wheel centers on?

On my cheap generic brand grinder I can flip the spacer over to fit the thinner discs. The nut that thread on over the top also has a recess near the center that allows it to clamp down on even the thinnest cutting wheel. It's kind of hard to explain but see if there is too sides to the spacer on your grinder. Flipping it may allow you to tighten it down so the disc won't wobble

metal is hard to get right now, have 2 16 guage tubes sitting in storage and was thinking if I had a design for side nerf bars with no bends to it...

You could build something without bends. However, 16ga is pretty thin isn't it?

Nice.

Btw, for anyone that's interested this winch bumper is for sale. PM me if you are. I'll be building something a little more stubby to go better with my tube fenders and don't feel like cutting this one up.
