Due date

I have 30 x 2 meter lengths of Stainless Steel rod, 4.7mm in diameter, that need cutting into 40cm lengths.

One end is ground on an angle similar to attached image. The other end only needs to be smooth sanded off to remove metal burrs etc after cutting. Each end would need a polish for a nice presentable finish.

The finished piece is used as a mini rod to be pushed into the ground. The angled end is to make it easy to push into the ground. The exact angle and shape is not important, as long as it is not sharp.

So all up 120 cuts, (30 2m rods, x 4 cuts each), to give 150 pieces at 40cm each.

I can deliver 2m rods if within 10km of Elanora 4221 gold coast.

I need 10 finished for early Mon Sep 4, and the rest say a week later.

Please let me know if you’ve done this type of work before, and a summary of your tools and approach, and $ price for this job.

Hi Lars

I can see on your profile you have good engineering and building quals and experience. Though I wonder if the angle grinder, file and sand paper approach may be a tough method. If you were closer than Beenleigh (50 min away from elanora 4221, burleigh heads area) I'd happily invite you to do a couple to see if it's viable for you to do all 150 pieces.

I can't help but think a bench grinder, sander, polisher (spinning wheels) is needed.

with that in mind, is there an easy way you can do say 2 samples to see if the other 148 are viable for you ? Tks peter
no worries. maybe next time

I don't need it as precise, but just wondered how even your finish would be. Thats why I wondered what tools & approach you will take for the job, to give me a fair idea of the finish. I think a bench grinder and polisher could do a good job for someone handy with the tool. .

If you're still interested, let me know your tools/ approach plan to help me understand. Be nice if I could call you, but you know this airtasker 'non trust' policy that blocks good communication before I push the accept job button :)
