How to cut angle steel?

To cut angle steel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Measure and mark the desired length of the angle steel on the steel surface using a measuring tape and a marker.

  2. Secure the angle steel firmly in a vise or a workbench with clamps to prevent it from moving during cutting.

  3. Put on safety goggles and work gloves to protect yourself from any metal chips or sparks.

  4. Choose the appropriate cutting tool for the job. Some options include an angle grinder with a metal cutting disc, a hacksaw with a metal-cutting blade, or a portable band saw.

  5. For an angle grinder, place the metal cutting disc perpendicular to the angle steel at the marked cutting line. Ensure that the angle grinder is turned off before inserting the disc into the metal.

  6. If using a hacksaw, position the blade at the marked cut line and secure the angle steel with a firm grip with one hand. Use long, steady strokes to cut through the steel.

  7. For a portable band saw, carefully position the saw blade perpendicular to the marked line and turn on the tool. Slowly and steadily guide the saw through the metal to make the cut.

  8. Apply steady pressure and continue cutting until the angle steel is fully severed.

  9. Once the cut is complete, inspect the cut edge for any burrs or sharp edges. Use a file or a deburring tool to smooth out any rough edges.

Remember to exercise caution and prioritize safety during the cutting process. Always wear appropriate protective gear and use the correct tools for the job.
