Default Compressor belt guard

Got to use my plasma cutter to make this belt guard. Came out pretty nice. And I got to use the Wilton clamp that Cutter gave me.

Looks like you have a circle guide.

Nice. Now that you are done with the clamp I guess it is time to send it on the the next SFT member in line. I'll PM you my address.

Yes I do have a circle cutter. Still getting used to the plasma cutter. Either too slow and it melts it back together or too fast and it doesn't cut all the way through. Way better than a cutoff wheel though.

That looks really good, rotty.

One of the first things I used my little plasma cutter for was cut the belt guard off my compressor.
It was like a grill made of about 1/8th inch rod with thin sheet on the top & bottom, hinged at one end with a snap clasp at the other.
It vibrated and rattled like crazy and I got really tired of hearing it.
