Appears like it will get the job done marko, just make sure to remove that ppretty plastic from the pipe before you go to cuttin. You definitely don't want to breathe the smoke from that crap.

Also don't clamp that torch handle too tight or you can Joey up the mixer.

Good Job! Tell me how you like it. How many times have you used it. Looks like I would benefit from it. Simple and well thought out.

Marko do you have a problem keeping a consistint speed on your cuts? Your so close have you thought about adding a electric motor with a dial for speed control?

Thanks for the advice about the coating franz.....that stuff smells horrid when you cut through it, also, that may be what's causing me to loose the cut once in a while. I hold the torch to the upright with an old ground clamp...simple and quickly adjustable.

Wolf: I don't think I need a motor drive....I can turn the pipe real steady with my left hand while the right holds down the cut lever on the torch.

Marko, if I recall correctly, it's a vinyl coating, and the smoke contains some lovely Cyonide products. You could wind up lettin yerself down.
