angle grinder support

some time ago I made this support and I must say that I find it very convenient and useful.
it is assembled and disassembled in few seconds and allows you to fix the grinder to the vice and work by holding the piece with two hands. so it is possible to be much more precise especially if you work on small pieces.
you can mount all the discs and use the tool to grind, cut, wire-brush, smooth, sharpen, polish, sandpaper, remove rust, strip paint, etc. etc.

in addition it allows to hold the grinder in the vice in many positions

here you can find the video and inside there are all the details and mesurements if someone wants to build it:

Looks handy for someone who cannot afford a belt grinder.

yes it is and even if you have a belt grinder but want to save the belts for finishing the job this support allows you to rough the job easily and in control using the grinding/flap discs.

obviously you must always wear PPE, never remove the guard from the grinder, use new discs and replace them often and above all always turn on the brain before the grinder!
