    Default Cutting/Grinding on Aluminum

    Guys: I have a large eyelet at the top of the bow of my boat (26' Boulton) that interferes with the loading and unloading process. I need to remove this eyelet; however, I am seeking advice from the pros as to how to best remove the eyelet. Should I cut it off and then smooth the transition with a file, or should I use a grinder to grind off the eyelet? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I cut alot of aluminum with a saws-all, with a metal blade; you'll need to use wd40, cooking pam or something to keep the teeth from gumming up. Then use a 4" grinder with a non-ferrous metal flapper disc (looks like layered sandpaper) it will smooth it out very nice.
