    Hole saws come in many sizes and yes they do come smaller than 1/2. I have a similar version of the notcher posted and it works great. You can make high angle notches, offset notches, compound notches and clamp it to a larger pipe and drill holes through for sleeves. That is very handy for race cage building as you can shave off small amounts to dial down to a tight fit. With this type unit the shaft is larger than 1/2 so you can't make high angle drill throughs in sizes under 1"

    Thank You. My ten minutes of interwb search didn't find one. I'll try again.

        My JD notcher looks good. However, I think I am going to weld a 1/4 inch thick piece of aluminum at a right angle to the notcher so instead of claming the tool in a vise end for end I will have that flange to clamp to. What do you think?

              There are problems with tools like the Low Buck notcher - you've got to guess at how much material to remove for anything other than 90 degrees. Get it wrong and you have a bad fit. The hole saw versions have a limit on the sharpness of the angle. I got to borrow the use of a Mittler and was able to cut a 27 degree angle! The Mittler is high dollar and no way could I afford one just to build just one cage but it sure made life easy!

                Anybody here ever built their own notcher? I'd be interested in design plans.
