    Big powerfile / angle grinder hack

    Made a big power file add to my 1900W Metabo grinder.
    Belt size 40" x 2 1/2"

    Upper one is the one that i have made earlier.
    On the middle is a belt from the sander that you can buy from Amazon with 30$

    Lower is the one made on the video.

    Later i will make a table mount for it, so it can be used as an regular belt sander too.

    And here is the final video about the whole build.



    Same stand will be later used with the angle grinder "chop saw" too.

    This build is kind of remake from my smaller version that i made about year ago.

    Bigger tought and more options for adjusting.

    Simplier version can be found here.

    So, to be continued.
