    Looks like the base of a chop saw, attach a 7" or 9" grinder and make it a mini chop saw?

    That‘s what I originally thought, but that doesn't explain why the support is triangular shaped and the blade slot is so far away from it, or why there are what look like two bolt holes in it. Grinders usually have a bolt hole at the front for the handle but not at the rear. A chop saw is probably what I will try but wondered if it might have some other purpose.

    I used to have one somewhat similar to that, It is a base to convert an right angle grinder to a chopsaw.
    Work not bad but can be a pain to set up. mine was universal but that one looks like it might be brand specific.
    Good luck Al

    On second look it probably is an universal mount it uses the handle mounts and jamb bolts to position the angle grinder. You will need to find the right bolts to fit your grinder.

    Hi,

    This is a Wolfcraft 5019000 Angle Grinder Stand, it lacks some accessories to be able to use it, hope that help.

    Hi Moby Duck,

    It is angle grinder base (for 115~125mm models),
    for convert and use them like a chop saw.
    I have one similar but I have use it, only two times.
    The correct setup it's pain and fiddly each time that you will need it,
    and if you haven't a second angle grinder to burying on it,
    I would not recommend you buying it.

    Regards
    Bill

    Thank you Mick. Exactly the answer and details that I was hoping for. I can now see that there are parts missing and will not be buying it.
