    Quick locking tilting angle grinder handle.

    Hi

    This is very simple, but usefull "tool" for your angle grinder.

    It allows to adjust the angle of the handle of it.

    Takes less space when stored.. gives more ergonomical hold from the grinder in different task..

    when cutting, grinding, in different positions or workpiece down or high.

    Edit, plans:

    Structure is very simple, but here's the plans. So you don't need to think whole system by yourself.


    First picture is the part 1.

    Its made from three parts. 2pcs 30mm x 20mm x 3mm flat bar.( part 1.1 ) And one 20mm x 26mm piece of 10mm thick flat bar. (part 1.2 )

    Parts 1.1 are weld to parts 1.2 so that gap between parts 1.1 is 20mm ( same as the thickness of part 2 )

    Second picture is the part 2.

    Its made from 30mm x 20mm flat bar. Cut to size 30mm x 20mm x 26mm

    20mm thick side goes between parts 1.1 in the part 1.

    Third picture is from the handle.

    I changed the srew from it to longer one. So that the lenght after locking nut is 20mm

    Fourth picture shows the screws used for assembling.

    M6 screw. Lenght 35mm. Two 6mm washers and nylock nut to connect parts 1 and 2 together.

    10mm washer goes between part 2 and the grinder.

    ....and then there's all those belt sander, power file, router.. modifications too.
    Angle grinder seems to have endless possibilities, like hand drill also.

    Tried to add plans earlier, but i had some issues with Firefox, with Chrome picture uploading seems to work nicely.

    Now there's plans at the first post.

    If Jon counted right? This should be 10th angle grinder add from me.
    Plate locks to the disc guards locking slots.
    Disc guard can be removed within 3 seconds, without tools.
    So, result should be a power file attachment that can be attached / deattached without tools in couple seconds.

    Shaped slots with hand files.

    Fits to the slots.

    Me to on Firefox, don't use chrome if I don't have to. On Firefox if you use the "Basic Loader it seems to work, but limited to one picture at a time.

    Nice addition with the filer Tuomas! Got my eye on one of those Bosch Grinders!! Thanks Tuomas!!
