    Getting more from your angle grinder

    Hi

    This is a simple attachment what makes angle grinder more easier to use.

    Still prototype, but works. Maybe one can get ideas from it.

    Thanks mate!

    As i said its just a prototype.. Just noticed that i should have bend a V- groove to the bottom plate.. It would work good guide when cutting bigger pipes. I got some other improvements on my mind too. Maybe i need to make that over engineered version too?

    Improvement 1. Another option for the handle.
    Usefull when using wood carving discs, or cutting with guide.

    Improvement 2.
    Bigger disc broke guard. Keeps sparks and wood dust away from hands.

    Improvement 3.

    Screw that locks grinder, so that it doesnt move sideways. Usefull when used at a chop saw.

    Finished.

    Some improvements. I'll update this section until its finally "done".

    1. Another option for the handle.

    2. Screw that locks the angle grinder to the stand so that it doesn't move sideways when tightening screw is loose. Good when using as a chop saw. It also secures straight cuts if tightening screw opens itself.

    3. Quick tightening action with simple thump screw, made from M12 nut and piece of flat bar.

    Down its loose. Up, its tightened.

    4. Bigger guard for safer use.

    5. add supports that guides angle grinder to the same line with the base, faster and easier assembly.

    6. Optional support wheel, helps with wood carving and grinding.

    Will be continued with the attachments for grinding and pipe cutting... Also im waiting my wood cutting blades, Getting more from your angle grinder-1017189246.jpg
    Then this will work as a circular saw too.

    Stay tuned!

    Made from 2mm steel with my diy brake.
    Just clamp both to the table at the same time and grind.

    Love that video of the whole build process. I absolutely need to build this so I can stop injurying myself with all the different grinder processes.
    Thank you
