    Yep. When you build things for your own use, with the tools that you have. ( bought or done by yourself ). Its somewhat obvious that others can't dublicate the whole process.

    There's 1000+ angle grinder hacks on youtube, 100+ most popular are made from the old style mounting, and all somewhat similar way.
    Decided to make mine to be little different. Of course, "old way" would give more U-tube views and more money... but then it would have been just another copy again. Imo.

    So. Reason why i made this, even that it more likely gets less views or visibility, was that i want to make things way that i haven't seen before.

    Sometimes it really pisses me, when i believe that i got whole new idea, and then notice that someone made something similar last week.

    That's actually only "bad" thing in this forum, so many great ideas that its really difficult to make something that's not allready been made.

    Good one bruce.desertrat! When I read the “defective smartphone charging cases” I busted up and envisioned the old B/W video of the guy on the rocket bike with the LiPo's going off in a spectacular fashion and the guy grinning ear to ear wobbling down the country road. I could go on about all the hack of the build...but it's always amazing to me how many angels are hanging around taking care of those that push the envelope.

    Tuomas, Congrats on your 7th Tool of the Week!

    Some of the things that I find interesting about your builds is: 1- using the tool itself plus your other mods or HMT's to build the mods or New tools is constant and adaptive (quite the loop). 2- the ingenuity of your builds using good design practices and forward thinking of its uses and possible future builds/uses. 3- perhaps most important is the joy of the builds I see in your videos. I could go on but have some reservations about being a fan-boy instead of someone that appreciates quality design, builds and having fun doing it, over cranking out crap to get views or lack luster one line comments about how cool that is.

    I've been on YT a long time now and removed all my vids years ago because I didn't like where it was going, however there are only ~2 handfuls that I watch regularly, comment or thumbs up on out of 120 subs. The reason for this is I learn something or see something that triggers something I've been pondering or wrestling with and the Quality of the build and edutainment value I get from all the work people put into it. It's not about SEO's imho, they will come if the above is met. The ratio's of likes/dislikes, # of views, and # of Subs to the quality of comments is an interesting statistical conundrum to me, but is tell tale of the every changing times we live through...and is predictive even without the AI google uses to garner...something...but I digress.

    I get it about thinking you had that idea first and it does piss me off sometimes too, especially when I go through my old notebooks looking for something and find this or that, that someone else brought to fruition...and got paid for it! @¿@ Either way they had the giddy-up to get it to some level, crap or not.

    Yup, I hear you about HMT's and all the amazing ideas, builds, craftsmanship, brilliance, etc. here contributing, sharing skills, knowledge and ideas and yet just people/individuals marking their time, adding to the deep end of the pool.
    It's a real PITA sometimes.

    That post wasn't actually for Beserkleyboy, more like generally. Its very usual that people comments on u-tube that i should use " common " tools. So, that was more like general answer.

    Its quite usual that tought " why i didn't think that", comes to my mind when i read threads here.
    Sometimes being surrounded with smart people makes you feel little stupid.
    But, that's just a good thing, when i feel stupid, i pay more attention for what i am reading. It kind of brings feets back to the ground.

    Dust collector..

    Angle grinder pipe sander attachment. - quick mount --p%F6ly6.jpg

    Dust collector is made from stainless steel.

    Curve is cut from the 60mm pipe, three plates are from 2mm thick sheet.

    Welds are made with tig, all welds are placed to the edges, that gives nicer looking final result. ( no disortion )

    Pieces are cut with angle grinder.

    22mm hole at the center point of the curve is drilled with cutter blade.

    8mm hole that connects dust collector to the sander is done with 8mm twistdrill.

    3D printed connector for vacuum cleaner.

    And its ready.

    Shape is designed for to be "nice" for the hand, loosening belt for changing can be done by pressing from the dust collector.

    Angle grinder pipe sander attachment. - quick mount --p%F6ly7.jpg

    And last improvements... Now it should be ready.

    New holder for the workpiece rest..

    Angle grinder pipe sander attachment. - quick mount --11.jpg

    To keep sander tool free, i weld pieces of 2mm stainless steel to bolt and nut that holds the rest.

    I weld little bigger plate pieces to the nut / bolt first.

    After that i shaped wings to desired shape, finally clamped nut to the vise and twisted wing with wrench.

    Then i polished welds with steelbrush.

    Result is larger right angled grinding area and tool free adjust for the rest, keeping sides of the rest clear.
