If you have been following the IronTrap Garage 1939 Forgotten Hot Rod project you have seen this bad boy in use — the Extended Reach Air Cut Off Tool is full of features that make it a true go-to tool when you need a cut off wheel in a tight spot.

It has speed control, which is helpful when grinding, and is reversible which allows you to direct the trail of sparks away from stuff in your garage you’d rather not shower with sparks…

A Must-Have In Any Shop

This pneumatic cut off tool is a must in any shop doing restoration projects or other metal fabrication.

You’ll use it for cutting patch panels, fabricating steel plate, removing damaged frame sections or simply cutting rusted bolts free. A finger-controlled knob offers “on the fly” speed adjustment that reduces cutting-wheel hop and prolongs cutting life by adjusting the speed to the type and thickness of the material being cut.

Reversible Cutting Direction

One of the most important features is the reversible cutting direction. If you’ve ever used a grinder or cut-off tool where you could not control in which direction the sparks fly, you’ll appreciate the ability here to reverse the cutting direction to send sparks away from you.

No longer will you have to reposition your body and head at awkward angles to avoid spark contact—simply flip the switch and the sparks fly 180 degrees away from you, others or flammable objects.
