We make a stand for an angle grinder with our own hands

A homemade tool is created for a variety of reasons. Someone saves on purchasing a branded one, someone makes a tool “for themselves”, and someone just gives pleasure to tinkering with their own hands. To me, as a practical person. all the above arguments are interesting.

So why would you even need an angle grinder stand in a workshop? The most obvious answer. to cut metal smoothly and quickly. Of course, there is an assembly saw, but the cost of even simple options is usually more expensive than a good angle grinder. over, this tool has a rather narrow functionality. “Angle grinders” today are in almost every garage or workshop, and it is the rack that allows you to expand the possibilities of their use. Unfortunately, factory racks, as a rule, cannot boast of the quality of workmanship, which affects the accuracy and safety of work. In the end, I decided to make an angle grinder stand myself. and to supplement this device with some features. making work more enjoyable

The main task to be solved. come up with some kind of device on which the stand will rotate, lowering and raising the “angle grinder”. I decided that a car hub would be perfect for this purpose. True, the central ledge on it had to be cut off (photo 2, 3). I made a clip for the hub from a piece of a channel of a suitable size, in which I cut out a hole for the bore diameter of the hub. It is clear that all this was done with the same “angle grinder”, and the hole was then modified with a file.

The bracket for attaching the angle grinder began to be made by adjusting the two corners to the places where the handle was installed, and then, between them, from one edge, welded the third corner. Next, along the body of the “angle grinder”, I bent a clamp bracket made of a steel strip 2 mm thick. A bolt MU was welded to it (perpendicular to the flat part). which enters the mating hole in the vertical corner, butt welded to the bottom bracket. This bolt adjusts the position of the angle grinder relative to the table so that the disc is perpendicular to its plane. A piece of pipe with a section of 50×50 mm with holes for attachment to the hub was welded to the entire structure from the corners.

Note that all this was done specifically for my angle grinder. old, still really Bulgarian production, which is why this instrument itself got its common name. Most modern “Bulgarian wives” have a third threaded hole on the body for installing the handle, so you can do without a clamp, while the angle grinder will be fixed not with two, but with three bolts. However, with this option, you will have to do with the impossibility of adjusting the tool relative to the table, that is, you will have to make the bracket very accurately.

angle, grinder, stand

Then he started making the base. First, a rectangle was welded from two 45×45 mm corners and two sections of the 50th profile pipe. The dimensions in my case turned out to be 570×500 mm. I put the 60th corner in the middle, fixed it also for welding. This will be the support for the channel. hub clips. Having estimated the relative position, he fixed the channel with four M10 bolts. over, the holes in the channel are slightly larger, about 12 mm is needed so that it has the ability to turn a little “on bolts”, which. in turn, will allow you to accurately align the angle grinder disc relative to the table. Reinforced the base with two 50 corners welded between the central corner and the sidewall. And into the adjacent opening, having also estimated the position relative to the “angle grinder” disc, I welded two profile pipes parallel to the central corner at a distance of about 10 mm from each other. These will be the guides for the clamping mechanism that fixes the part on the work table.

The plane of the table was made of 4 mm thick steel sheets welded to the base. The gap between the sheets matches the gap between the guides. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I tried, I did not achieve a perfectly flat surface: there is a difference of 1-1.5 mm Although, as it turned out, this does not affect the accuracy of the cut.

To work comfortably, the workpiece to be cut must be securely fixed.Therefore, I made a clamping device It consists of a stop and a movable clamp. The stop is made from the 50th corner, to one of the shelves of which I welded a rectangle cut from a steel plate of comparable thickness. An arcuate groove was cut through it. a screw will enter it, releasing and tightening which you can turn the stop. Thus, the workpiece can be cut at any angle.

At the heart of the moving part of the clamping device is a screw from an old car jack of the laralelogram type. On the side opposite to the handle, the screw ground down to a diameter of 6 mm and cut a thread to fix its end in the clamping axis. The axle was made from an M16 stud. ground from both sides to fit the diameter of the holes in the clamp. The axle shank with a threaded M10 thread enters the slot of the working table above the guides and is fixed from the bottom with a nut.At the edge of the table, he fixed the jack screw nut by welding a casing made of steel plates for it. Together with the nut, it is bolted to the table, and if necessary, the entire clamping device can be easily dismantled.

Of course, a high-quality angle grinder stand implies a return mechanism that lifts the tool up if you don’t press it against the work table. I wanted to make an advanced system so that the angle grinder rises smoothly and without jerks when the handle is released. The main part of the mechanism. gas stop from the tailgate of the car. It is placed on the back of the table, and rotates the hub using a rod connected to a lever attached to the hub with a nut on a standard hairpin (photo 14, 15). A slot is made under the lever in the table. The gas stop was fixed to the base with clamps bent from the MB hairpin. Surprisingly, the mechanism started working right away and nothing had to be adjusted. At first it seemed that it was working too harshly, but when the “angle grinder” was overgrown with handles and a casing, it turned out just right. By the way, the protective casing was also modernized: he increased it to the maximum and made a folding part to it, as on factory assembly saws.

When everything was ready, I decided to slightly expand the desktop, or rather to make it of adjustable width, so that it would be more convenient to work with long workpieces. If necessary, the sliding part can be removed. Its base is made of a profile pipe of a smaller cross-section, which goes with a small gap inside the 50th pipe of the main working table. (I will note in parentheses that 45×45 mm pipes. Suitable in size. It turned out to be almost impossible to find on construction markets, so I had to weld steel strips onto a 40×40 mm pipe.) On the sliding part of the table there is an additional stop for the workpiece, as well as a side stop that allows you to cut several parts of the same length.

Thinking how to improve my angle grinder stand, I made a spark arrester. a small screen fixed with screws to the table on the trajectory of the sparks from under the disk. And of course, I screwed a handle to the “angle grinder” mounting bracket, which ends with a standard rubberized handle of the tool. Finishing touch. painting the installation to make it look “branded”. The plans are the same. adjust the speed of the angle grinder without losing power, which will make it possible to use saw blades of different diameters and for different materials.

Bed drawings for angle grinder

  • With upright column when the angle grinder is lifted off the base. This design has more convenient control and a larger length of the longitudinal cut.
  • No upright. here the hinge is formed straight from the base. This type of design is the simplest and allows the angle grinder to saw pipes of small diameter and cross-section.

Pendulum frame

  • Support or bed. the part from which the vertical stand departs and where the workpiece is laid for cutting. The supporting part also performs the main function of keeping the entire machine in a stable position.
  • A vertical fixed stand, or a tripod for an angle grinder. this structural element is part of the pendulum mechanism and a support for a movable arm.
  • Movable bar or console. a part to which the angle grinder is directly attached.

The support is mainly made of sheet metal. It can be a factory bed, for example, from a drilling machine or any other where there is a flat platform. On the bed for an angle grinder, there must be a guide, where the pipe is abutted during cutting. The guide does not allow the workpiece to move during the operation. In addition, for greater convenience, you can equip the support with a clamping mechanism that will motionlessly fix the pipe to the guide during operation.

A stand, or tripod, is a vertically going up element. It can be made from a shaped or round pipe. In the upper part, a bearing unit is attached for the movable connection of the rack with the pendulum arm of the angle grinder. The height of the tripod depends on the size of the angle grinder and the pendulum device. The type of pipe (its geometric parameters and wall thickness) is selected depending on the power and weight of the power tool.

The pendulum bar of the angle grinder has two functions. Firstly, it rigidly holds the angle grinder, thereby preventing the disc from moving in the axial direction. Secondly, with the help of it, the tool is fed into the processing area, that is, the angle grinder can be lowered into the working position, cut and returned to the starting position again. It also has a special handle to control the console.

Counterweight design with shock absorber

  • Traditional type. It is made by installing a weight on the tail of the cantilever bar. The weight of the load is selected in such a way that in the initial position the angle grinder is at the top, but when it is lowered onto the workpiece, no great efforts have to be applied.
  • Spring mechanism as counterweight. In this case, the angle grinder is held in the upper position by the spring force. The most suitable for these purposes is a spring for closing the door leaf.

A shock absorber or stop is also required in the design of the angle grinder stand. The main task of such an element is to prevent the tool from moving downward below a certain level. The moment the pipe is completely cut, the lowering of the angle grinder should stop.

The stop can be made rigid, for example, in the form of a metal stand with a rubber gasket at the point of contact with an angle grinder, or soft. it can be realized due to a small spring at the end.

Stand for cutting sheet steel

  • Base. Ideally, it should be no less than the sheet that is supposed to be cut with an angle grinder, or allow the entire cutting area to be laid on it. It is necessary to use steel as a material for manufacturing so that it absorbs heat, preventing overheating of the mowing line for cutting steel.
  • U-shaped rack. This structural element serves as a guide for extending the angle grinder. The length of the segment between the legs of the stand should be sufficient to put a sheet between them, plus allow the body of the angle grinder to fit freely.
  • The carriage is a movable element that moves along the U-shaped rack on bearings. A pendulum arm and a depth limiter for lowering the cutting disc are attached to it.
  • The pendulum arm serves as a mechanism for lowering the angle grinder to the level of the working position. It also has a tool control knob attached to it.

You need to pull the angle grinder in the opposite direction to the direction of the sparks, otherwise the tool will undermine with a high probability of jamming.

Overview of possible options for manufacturing angle grinder stands

The angle grinder stand, as mentioned above, is a simple mechanism, but this statement applies only to the simplest designs. Having considered all the variety of factory-made devices and homemade products, three main types of devices can be distinguished:

  • the simplest pendulum bed;
  • pendulum mechanism with a rotary unit for cutting with an angle grinder at different angles;
  • bed for an angle grinder with a so-called broach.

The most common and easy-to-manufacture homemade angle grinder is built on the basis of a pendulum console. With the help of such equipment, you can easily saw various pipes of both round and profile sections, as well as rods, fittings and metal parts, the thickness of which does not exceed the thickness of the working part of the disk, and the length of the cut can be adjusted by moving the workpiece along the bed. Features of Attachment for Angle Grinder:

  • ease of manufacture and operation;
  • high reliability, since only one moving unit is used here;
  • such equipment will not be able to cut at an angle;
  • difficult to cut sheet material: low accuracy and injury risk.

The device of the bed with a swivel mechanism for an angle grinder allows you to carry out all the above-described metal cutting operations, but at the same time the function of sawing with an angle grinder at different angles is added. There is also a pendulum unit here, and, besides it, the pendulum support itself can rotate, or the stop-clamp, which holds the workpiece, rotates. Features of the device:

  • expanded possibilities of metal processing angle grinder;
  • relative simplicity of design;
  • here it is more difficult to obtain an accurate perpendicular and corner cuts due to the rotary mechanism and the need to calibrate the angle.

The broaching mechanism is the most difficult to execute. In addition to the pendulum unit, it uses a unit for pulling the angle grinder in the horizontal direction.

Angle Grinder Stand Manufacturing Instructions

We will clearly show you how to make a stand for an angle grinder with your own hands. In the article you will find drawings, video reports on homemade machines for an angle grinder. Holder options with sheet steel rails, pendulum tripod device.

The angle grinder belongs to the category of tools that have a high degree of risk of injury. This is due to the fact that the saw blade of the angle grinder rotates at high speeds, and the probability of it jamming in the workpiece is very high. This is especially true for long longitudinal cuts, when the abrasive tool is clamped when the metal is heated. When cutting pipes, the section to be removed can compress the cutting disc. this leads to a rupture of the body of the blade. To avoid the negative consequences of working with an angle grinder, an angle grinder stand is used.

When the angle grinder is rigidly fixed and moves only along a predetermined path, observing a certain cutting angle, the likelihood of danger decreases significantly. Angle grinder stands are commercially available, but this is not such a complex mechanism that you need to buy.

For your tool, you can make a simple device with your own hands. it will come out cheaper, and a self-developed design for a specific model will always be more accurately adjusted.

The simplest DIY solution

  • As a base, take a 20 mm thick chipboard sheet and cut out two pieces of 500×400 mm in size.
  • The workpieces are combined and twisted together with self-tapping screws to make a plate 40 mm thick.
  • Take the narrow side and, stepping back from the edge in the middle at a distance of 100 mm, cut a 40×40 mm square with a jigsaw.
  • Take a steel profile pipe with a section of 40×40 mm and a length of 500 mm. One end of the pipe is smeared with epoxy glue and inserted into the square cut at the base.
  • When the post adheres well to the base, stepping back from the top of the pipe 100 mm, drill a through hole with a diameter of 8 mm parallel to the short side.
  • They take a section of a profile pipe 400 mm long and a section of 30×30 mm and, stepping back from the edge of 50 mm, drill a through hole with a diameter of 8 mm. this is a pendulum console.
  • The movable part is twisted with the stand so that it moves freely, but without backlash in the horizontal direction.
  • the angle grinder is fixed to the console using steel clamps. The handle of the angle grinder will serve as a control.

Features of using an angle grinder as a saw

It will not be superfluous for your safety to remind that not all types of discs can be directly used for an angle grinder. First of all, this concerns discs for sawing wood, which have significantly lower speed indicators than are used in almost all grinders.

The exception is special discs for wood, designed for standard rotational speed of angle grinders.

It’s good if your tool has speed control. And if not, then, before using your angle grinder as a miter saw for wood, make a simple regulator of its speed based on the KR1182PM1 microcircuit, or close to it in terms of indicators, according to this scheme.

It is not worth using a simple rheostat for this. Along with decreasing the RPM, it will also proportionally reduce the power and torque of the tool. And for the angle grinder itself, use in such operating modes is harmful.

We strongly recommend that you provide your stand with an emergency shutdown button, as the shutdown button can be difficult to access once the angle grinder is installed in the rack. And even an angle grinder securely fixed in the device. the tool is quite traumatic.

You can put such a button in the cut of its power wire, but it is better to break the supply electric line with it, because the angle grinder removed from the rack becomes an ordinary mobile tool with all its advantages.

How to make a stand for an angle grinder (angle grinder) with your own hands: drawings, constructive

One of the most popular power tools in the household is an angle grinder (angle grinder), commonly referred to as an angle grinder. Despite the fact that its main purpose is grinding, it is more often used as a tool for cutting various materials. This is primarily facilitated by the abundance of types of disks that can be installed on it.

The main disadvantage of the angle grinder when performing such work is the low cutting accuracy, because holding the angle grinder in your hands, it is extremely difficult to maintain the exact angle and direction of the cut. Rarely is it possible to cut off any material strictly at a given angle. Especially if you have to perform the workpiece of the same type of parts of any design, and even with the specified cutting angles. This disadvantage can be minimized by applying a special stand to the angle grinder.

There are such factory-made attachments for various models of angle grinder, some of them are quite versatile. But the relatively high cost makes them unaffordable for most DIYers. Meanwhile, most of these craftsmen are able to make a stand for their angle grinder with their own hands, without spending a lot of money, and even time.

Do-it-yourself angle grinder stand. an overview of options

  • securely attach the tool to the console;
  • ensure minimal deviations from the cutting plane during operation;
  • hold the tool securely in the upper position.

For attaching the angle grinder to the console, the threaded attachments of the handle on its head are suitable. There are 3 of them, and this is more than enough for reliable fixation.

And sometimes, to attach the angle grinder, they use a protective casing that is sufficiently rigid and securely attached to its head.

For small grinders working with discs up to 125. 150 mm, sometimes it will be sufficient to fasten the body to the console using powerful clamps, but to prevent axial rotation of the tool, the stop of the grinder head must be used.

angle grinder, working with cutting discs of large diameter (200. 230 mm), in addition to their reliable attachment to the console, must have a good support base for attaching the console itself to the work table.

This ensures the minimum deviation from the cutting plane.

Many DIYers provide the oscillating motion of the console by installing one or two bearings to attach it to the work table. For this, ready-made bearing assemblies for cars or bicycles are often used. However, a simple bolted connection will provide sufficient mobility, the parts of which, with good lubrication, will work as conventional plain bearings.

So, as shown in the video describing the simple design of the rack for an angle grinder made of metal:

True, we would not rely on such reliability of fixing the tool in the upper position, as the author of the video recommends, but would install the tension spring in a convenient place.

It is clear that the repair of such a console mount is reduced to replacing the bolt, or, in extreme cases, to simply increasing its diameter or installing a sleeve with a lot of wear of the mating parts.

A similar principle of ensuring compliance with the flatness of the cut is also ensured when the rack is made not from corners, but from shaped pipes. Watch a short video about a simple homemade metal drain for an angle grinder:

Few people decide to make a wooden stand for an angle grinder, but this does not mean at all that it cannot be done. But some of the design solutions that we want to show you may well serve as source of ideas for creating a rack of your own design, incl. and from this material.

To enlarge the picture. click on it:

Sometimes, to ensure the return of the tool to the upper position after the cut, instead of a tension spring, a conventional counterweight is used to compensate for the weight of the tool itself.

Angle Grinder Stand Drawings

There are not so many drawings of such racks on the Internet. Basically, these are primitive sketches illustrating the principle of operation of the device rather than the exact dimensions and order of its assembly. And even those that exist do not have all the necessary information.

And the very design of such devices quite often raises doubts about the use of such a drawing without a certain correction.

Therefore, we advise you not to waste time looking for them, but after carefully considering the options for implemented projects to create homemade racks for an angle grinder, choose the one that suits you. Or, taking into account their shortcomings, implement your own.

The simplest attachment for a rack angle grinder

Actually, this device cannot be called a stand, and you can do almost the same work with it, which is provided by the most technologically advanced stand. The principle of its operation is clear from a short video:

But if, instead of a strip, you use a corresponding corner with a sawn-off part of one of the shelves, as one of the authors of a similar design did, then there will be no need to drill a blind hole in the head of an angle grinder.

In this case, the tool will be fastened with two screws into the threaded holes for the handle existing on the head of the angle grinder. And the principle of the sole will not change. only its rigidity will increase.

The method of using an angle grinder as a kind of circular saw using the same sole, shown in another video by the same author, will not change either:

Dear readers, if you have any questions, ask them using the form below. We will be glad to communicate with you;)

Homemade angle grinder stand with your own hands

Simple do-it-yourself angle grinder stand.

I had to cut a lot of profile pipes, so I decided to make myself a convenient fixture stand for an angle grinder.

To make the rack, I bought an angle grinder with a 230 mm disc, also used part of the VAZ 2121 propeller shaft, profile pipes. 40 x 20 mm, 20 x 20 mm, bolts, washers and other small things.

Started with the manufacture of the base of the machine, in two profiles 40 x 20

along the edges we drill holes for threaded rivets, insert the legs of the base into them.

Then from the profile pipe 20 x 20 mm, we cut 6 blanks, two of which will be a groove for the disk, weld the blanks to the base.

Base legs are made of welded washers.

We will make a bracket for attaching an angle grinder to the swivel mechanism from a strip of metal 40 mm wide, measure the dimensions of an angle grinder, transfer it to the strip and make small slots so that it is easy to bend the workpiece in the shape of a letter. P.

Drill holes in the workpiece and bolt them to the angle grinder, scald the joints.

We will attach the movable mechanism to the angle grinder bracket through a tube, I took it from the shock absorber of the rear door of the “Zhiguli”.

The driveshaft is welded to the bed, perpendicular to the angle grinder bracket.

I make an emphasis, made blanks and welded them together into such a structure. The emphasis itself, on the bed, will be bolted.

That’s all, a homemade angle grinder stand is ready, over time I will put a return spring and a vice for fixing the workpieces.

It is very convenient to use the device, the cut is smooth, which is what was required.

Consider how to make a stand for an angle grinder with your own hands?

Since the sizes of grinders from different manufacturers vary within some limits and do not coincide up to a millimeter with each other, then the number of racks for attaching the tool will be many and varied in design. In this case, an individual approach to the design and adherence to the basic principles of rack manufacturing is important.

  • reliable fastening of the tool;
  • the presence of a counterweight;
  • reliable stops and clamps;
  • work in compliance with safety regulations, availability of protection.

Let’s consider these points in more detail to determine which rack we need.

Secure tool holder

Many, fired up with the idea of ​​\ u200b \ u200bmaking a stand, are looking for drawings on the Internet, without thinking what exactly they may not be on their tool, since each model is individual and fastening to it must be done, as they say locally.

I propose to look at different examples of how people made the mount, and we will take the best from each. Here are some photos of the location and fixing of the angle grinder based on the needs and desired functionality.

The easiest way to fix the tool to the pipe

As you can see from the photos, the attachment of the angle grinder is individual for each, but the most important thing is that the tool is securely attached in each of them. In the first photo, the tool is inserted into the frame and fixed with bolts at the handle attachment points.

The second example is similar to the first, only the frame has an individual design and a control handle is added to it, in the form of a welded 20×20 pipe to control the cutting force and ease of operation.

The third option generally conquers with its simplicity and minimalism. The angle grinder is attached to a protective cover in which holes for bolts are made and the entire machine consists of a minimum number of parts.

So, we decided on the fastening of the tool. In our case, this is the third option. attaching the tool to the protective casing. It is extremely quick and easy to make.

You will need two 10 bolts and two self-locking nuts, only the nuts must be attached to the outside of the casing. A couple of plates and a pipe on which everything is attached. I guess it won’t be difficult to find such parts. Watch the video how easy it is to mount

Do-it-yourself angle grinder stand: manufacturing examples

The angle grinder is a universal tool for the home and the use of this tool in everyday life is very diverse. They can be grinded, cut off polished to peel off, but the most interesting thing is that a metal cutting machine can be made of it, a device that makes it possible to cut workpieces with smooth edges, and reduces the load on the hands due to reliable clamps and stops.

Reliable stops and clamps

All five photographs show different fixtures for clamping a part, all of them are good and convenient in their own way, and, nevertheless, one can choose the most correct solution from them. The most reliable and correct mounting option is a vice.

  • They securely fix the workpiece.
  • You don’t need to hold it with your hands.
  • If the disc breaks during the cut, it is extremely difficult to hold the part in your hands and if it is in a vice, the risk of injury is reduced.
  • And if you buy a rotary vise and make a longitudinal groove at the base of the rack to move the fasteners along the cut mowing line, then you can make an oblique cut, which increases the functionality of your machine.

Summarize

What is needed to make a stand for an angle grinder with your own hands.

And a few video examples of how to make a bed for an angle grinder in an hour with step-by-step instructions and a detailed description of the dimensions. Since everything is clearly described in the video with explanations of the dimensions of the parts, you can do without a drawing.

Simply, quickly from improvised means and that trash that is in almost every garage. Remains of a profile pipe, a metal frame and a few bolts. Yes, welding is indispensable in manufacturing.

Counterweight

It is up to you to decide whether the rack should have a counterweight, but having one makes it easier to work and serves as an indirect safety feature. In theory, if you let go of the tool, it should rise to a vertical position, thereby stopping cutting the material.

I would advise you to make the limit switch off in the extreme upper position so that when the angle grinder comes into it, it will simply turn off, this measure will enhance the safety measures of your homemade device.

If you look at the photo above, you can see that two of them have counterweights, in the third case it is not. Which, in my opinion, is the drawback of this design. Here are some more examples of how you can make a counterweight. It is enough to put the spring, matching it to the weight of your tool, a simple and effective solution.

angle, grinder, stand

We figured out the counterweight so as not to make the structure bulky, it is better to put the spring as in the photo The stand is easy to manufacture and allows you to tilt the angle grinder by more than 90 degrees, unlike the one in the photo, this property can be useful when working with large objects.

Work in compliance with safety regulations, availability of protection

In all the examples considered, the cable from the angle grinder dangles freely, but must be fixed to the movable part of the stand, and in the latter case, the photo generally stretches across the working area behind the operator’s back, which makes our stand extremely dangerous, avoid such omissions when designing and working.

I recommend that before starting work, nevertheless fasten the power cord to ordinary plastic clamps in several places in order to avoid getting it under the cutting tool and, in general, it simply will not get in the way.

If it is inconvenient to work with glasses, do as shown in the video below. An example of an excellent protection against flying sludge while cutting metal. Simple, easy to use and quick release.

Creating a router from an angle grinder with your own hands

In some cases, there is a need to mill a hole in any surface, but the familiar mill operator is not around, and it is impossible to find it. If you also have an angle grinder. an angle grinder, then this will be a good solution to the problem. To do this, you need to choose a machine from two options. a movable table or a movable machine.

In the first case, it is worth fixing the material or the part that will be subjected to the milling process, and the angle grinder is attached in the vertical plane to the frame itself. On the frame, it will be possible to easily shift the plate, to which the angle grinder itself is attached left-right, forward, and also backward. In another way, we can move the angle grinder in relation to the workpiece itself.

In the next version, the angle grinder will be firmly fixed, and the workpiece itself will begin to move along the analogue to the left-right, forward and backward. These will be the main directions for the implementation of the milling process. For milling along a certain axis up and down, it will be very easy to add such a device.

After selecting a certain machine, you can implement its creation. The only place where you have to attract a turner is to hold the cutter itself. It is turned from a hexagon at least 16 millimeters wide, since the thread of an angle grinder itself is about 14 millimeters. Collet type holder. It is very easy to create and does not have strong beats. A simple jaw chuck does this much worse.

The main advantage of such machines, like all machines created from an angle grinder, is that they can be modified back into a simple angle grinder. As a type of milling cutter from an angle grinder, you can create a drill.

What to consider

Today, a large number of different machine models have been developed. Sometimes the angle grinder is placed under the worktop and sometimes above the surface itself. If we talk about safety precautions, then a do-it-yourself cutting machine, the drawings of which can be created entirely by ourselves, would be best placed on top, since this particular option will be more reliable.

A special cutout is made according to the special mowing line of the disc abutment in the angle grinder to the table top. If you have any knowledge of electrical engineering, then switching on should be done through a special magnetic starter, in which case the start button will be combined with a specialized pedal. Even when the operator’s hands are occupied, he will be able to stop the machine anyway with his foot.

When creating a cutting machine from an angle grinder yourself, the drawings should be very carefully considered. Very often they help not to make unnecessary mistakes in the design of the device. It is very important to comply with all safety regulations. At the moment when the assembly of the machine is completed, it should be driven out again, which will help to finally make sure that there is no beating of the disc itself. It should not touch the protective cover of the machine.

The second way to create a machine

Creating a machine using an angle grinder in this way will be a little more difficult, but the tool will provide more efficient precision when cutting materials. To carry out the work, you will have to create:

  • Desktop.
  • Ruler.
  • Special frame construction.

The table frame should be welded from a corner and a channel. Special sheet metal can be used as a tabletop, but in some cases materials such as:

The decision about what material to use when creating will directly depend on the purpose for which you want to use such a device, as well as with what schemes you will work in the future. In the process of creating a machine from an angle grinder using this method, you also need to create a frame structure, one part of which will be completely motionless and will act as an additional support.

One part must be placed on the tabletop and fixed firmly with special bolts and welding. The second structure will be connected to the first by means of hinges. The angle grinder itself will be installed on it, the position of which is easy to change independently. To return the equipment to its original state, you need to use a special spring.

If you create a cutting machine from an angle grinder, then a ruler is also used to create it. With a ruler, you can easily set the overall dimensions of all samples. For this, a separate tube or a piece of iron with marks and a movable marker is most often used.

Do-it-yourself angle grinder stand, bed drawings

If you have ever worked with an angle grinder, then you already know all its disadvantages. The main thing in this case is the low accuracy of cutting samples, if you do the work manually. The course of such a problem is rather difficult, which is especially important when it is necessary to create several elements with the same general parameters.

If vibration and kickback are taken into account, the stationary installation is, of course, more stable in operation. But the purchase of a machine tool for industrial production cannot be used for its intended purpose at home. So the simplest model of the machine will cost about 22,500 rubles.

Drawings of a cutting machine from an angle grinder

Before starting the work of creating a machine from an angle grinder, you should prepare additional components and parts, which can be pipes or an angle grinder, which will act as a handle and frame. It is best to strengthen the angle grinder on it, using a special metal plate for this. To create such a blank, you need to use a thick piece of iron; creating such a device will take about 30 minutes.

A metal sample will be applicable as a support; it is best to weld a corner to such an object. The end of the lever should be installed on the axle, since the return stroke will be performed using a spring. If you create a cutting machine using an angle grinder yourself, you can end up with low-weight equipment that can later be placed completely anywhere. In addition, the assembly of the device will not take place with significant financial costs, because all the necessary parts can be found in everyday life.

An alternative to creating a pendulum machine

To create a metal cutting machine, you may prefer to use the pendulum version. At the first stage of creation, for this it is worth using shaped pipes, which are good to use in the process of creating the frame of the pendulum. The metal profile is most often used for console mounting; it can be supplemented with a special steel bar or a metal bus.

If supporting platforms are to be used in the machine, the sheet steel must be completely cut to size. To the lever, which has the appearance of a section of a shaped pipe, it is worth attaching a cross section by welding. At this time, it is worth following the perpendicularity of the mount.

We make our own wall chaser from an angle grinder

A groove is a special groove that needs to be cut in the wall for laying the electrical cable and wire. The difficulty lies in the fact that the groove must always be of constant depth and width. Only in this case, the wire will be laid evenly and the total solution for the bookmark will be much less.

A wall chaser is rarely used in everyday use, so it will be unequal to purchase it in the house. But you can easily create it yourself using an angle grinder diagram. the most famous angle grinder.

The main task in this case is to install two diamond discs on the shaft of an angle grinder with a total distance of less than one centimeter:

  • First, we install the first disk and fasten it with a nut.
  • We install the second disk and also fasten it with a nut.
  • Checking the total distance that arose between the two discs.
  • We install additional protection on the angle grinder.
  • Once again, we check the quality of the device.

If, for some reason, you cannot create two discs on the shaft, then the strobe can be easily cut with a simple method with one installed disc. To do this, you just need to cut the second parallel line.

Work with wall chasers should be carried out in the same room. During operation, a large amount of dust is generated. Even an ordinary respirator cannot save from it. In order to remove such a negative impact, it is worth creating a special protective casing that can hide several disks at once and will have a special pipe for connecting to a vacuum cleaner.

Such a device is available on electric jigsaws for collecting small sawdust. In some cases, lovers of the rational use of the device add two or four rotating rollers to the casing. During the movement of the chasers along the surface of the entire wall, they will move evenly ¸ without creating any stress on the human hands at this time.

To create such a structure on a wide groove, it is worth making special bushings for attaching the disks to the main spring. With such a wall chaser, you can easily create grooves for further pipe laying.

In this case, the protective casing must be made wider. On the casing of the chaser, wires, as well as on all pipes, it is worth installing an additional screw to adjust the level of immersion of the cutter inside the wall. In this case, the casing will include two parts at once, which will be connected to each other by a hinge and a knot for adjusting the main dive.

Angle Grinder Attachment

But with such equipment, there are some drawbacks that can suggest that it is easiest to create a cutting machine using a bed and just an angle grinder. Factory production models of such machines are limited in use. For example, the model mentioned above can only cut 100 mm pipes. In domestic conditions, it is very often necessary to work together with samples of a higher quality section. In addition, everyone has their own needs, so a certain model simply cannot fully satisfy them.

Factory devices can be significantly changed, but most often this happens in conjunction with financial investments. In some cases, it is generally irrational and incorrect to change the device. This will apply to equipment that is created from alloys that are difficult to process. A self-made angle grinder machine is now very often trying to create by home craftsmen. To accomplish this task, you can use several methods at once. If you consider them in detail, then you can come up with your own design yourself.

Bed drawings for angle grinder

The bed for an angle grinder can be of different designs, as shown in the drawings:

  • With upright column when the angle grinder is lifted off the base. This design has more convenient control and a larger length of the longitudinal cut.
  • No upright. here the hinge is formed straight from the base. This type of design is the simplest and allows the angle grinder to saw pipes of small diameter and cross-section.

DIY instructions for making a bed for an angle grinder

The simplest angle grinder frame consists of two frames and a holder. The order of work is as follows:

  • We cut the profiled pipes and drill holes in them according to the drawing.
  • Using welding, we make the lower and upper frames of the future structure.
  • We cut out a working platform from an iron sheet or chipboard. If the impeller is powerful, then it is better to use metal.
  • We fix the lower frame on the platform and weld the upper one to it.
  • We fasten the holder to the vertical frame using bolts. It should rotate freely like a pendulum.
  • Install the spring. It is needed to return the tool to its original position. One end of the spring is attached to the top end of the vertical frame, and the other to the holder.
  • For the convenience of working with the device, install a button with switching through a relay, through which power will be supplied to the instrument.
  • Give the structure a complete look by covering it with paint.
  • Finally, fit the bed with a movable ruler with stop. This will allow you to trim products as accurately as possible.

After assembling the fixture, install the angle grinder into it and check the idle speed of the tool. If the circle does not touch anything and rotates freely, then you can use the structure as intended.

The impeller holder can be equipped with a shock absorber. This will allow the cutting tool to move across the work platform.

The home-made bed has the main main advantage of gaming slots. low cash costs for improving the angle grinder. You can get a factory model, but it’s an expensive delight. And the racks additionally assembled in artisanal conditions often have properties similar to those of factory counterparts.

Hence, a natural question arises. why pay only for what they do without the help of others?

However, a self-made bed makes certain demands on the master. He must:

  • Have the least experience;
  • Have the ability to work with an angle grinder;
  • Drill carefully;
  • Work with a welding machine;
  • Allow enough time to complete the work to improve the angle grinder;
  • Have patience in case something doesn’t go to the same extent and the design of the rack will have to be redone.

If this happens, then it remains only to follow the annotation on the assembly of the rack.

  • Develop a detailed drawing of the rack, otherwise use the ready-made drawings of the bed. It is better to adapt the design directly for yourself and your model of an angle grinder, since this way you can assemble a very comfortable, ergonomic bed.
  • Explore the factory models of the angle grinder stand. They can be designed to fit a specific angle grinder or be versatile. This is an important point in the acquisition of an auxiliary structure for an angle grinder.
  • Check the current condition of the angle grinder. It is not advisable to use an old, poorly functioning angle grinder in the construction of the bed. It is better to leave it for rough manual processing of workpieces, and install the latest, efficient and productive angle grinder on the bed.
  • To assemble a simple bed for an angle grinder, you will need two frames and a holder.
  • Cut pieces of suitable length from the iron pipe according to the drawings of the rack, and make holes at the required points.
  • Use a welding machine to make frames. upper and lower. Welding can be interchanged with bolted connections, although under these circumstances, reliable welding will be better.
  • Cut a work surface out of an iron sheet or chipboard. For massive grinders, preference is given to iron tables, for light angle grinders, a sheet of chipboard will be enough.
  • Install the lower frame on the platform (desktop), after which the upper frame is welded or bolted to it.
  • The holder is fixed to the vertical frame with bolts. Make sure that the grip can rotate freely, observing the principle of a pendulum.
  • Install a strong spring. This element will allow you to return the angle grinder to its original position. Fix it with one end of the spring on the upper end of the vertical frame, and the other end is installed on the holder. Over time, the spring can stretch and wear, which is a natural phenomenon. Therefore, with active use, it will be necessary to change the spring from time to time.
  • To increase the level of comfort while working on the angle grinder with bed, use a 12V relay to connect the switch button. Through this element, power will be supplied to the device. So you don’t have to reach for the button on the angle grinder every time.
  • Make sure the wiring is in good condition, allocate a separate outlet for the machine. The machine is not required to have its weight characteristics here, alas, you should not work on the machine through an extension cord to which other consumers are connected.
  • Use metal primers, varnishes and paints to complete your angle grinder frame. This will protect the structure from rust, will allow you to get aesthetic pleasure from the completed rack.
  • Add a movable ruler and stopper to the structure. By using them, you will increase the accuracy of processing workpieces.

Make your own large angle grinder stand

Inspect the operation of the angle grinder bed only at idle speed at the end of assembly work.

Pendulum frame

A device for a pendulum angle grinder can be easily created with your own hands. Main structural elements:

  • Support or bed. the part from which the vertical stand departs and where the workpiece is laid for cutting. The supporting part also performs the main function of keeping the entire machine in a stable position.
  • A vertical fixed stand, or a tripod for an angle grinder. this structural element is part of the pendulum mechanism and a support for a movable arm.
  • Movable bar or console. a part to which the angle grinder is directly attached.

The support is mainly made of sheet metal. It can be a factory bed, for example, from a drilling machine or any other where there is a flat platform. On the bed for an angle grinder, there must be a guide, where the pipe is abutted during cutting. The guide does not allow the workpiece to move during the operation. In addition, for greater convenience, you can equip the support with a clamping mechanism that will motionlessly fix the pipe to the guide during operation.

A stand, or tripod, is a vertically going up element. It can be made from a shaped or round pipe. In the upper part, a bearing unit is attached for the movable connection of the rack with the pendulum arm of the angle grinder. The height of the tripod depends on the size of the angle grinder and the pendulum device. The type of pipe (its geometric parameters and wall thickness) is selected depending on the power and weight of the power tool.

The pendulum bar of the angle grinder has two functions. Firstly, it rigidly holds the angle grinder, thereby preventing the disc from moving in the axial direction. Secondly, with the help of it, the tool is fed into the processing area, that is, the angle grinder can be lowered into the working position, cut and returned to the starting position again. It also has a special handle to control the console.

Option 3

This version of the device is the easiest to make with your own hands. It is made without the traditional pivot stand. All you need is one door canopy, a metal strip and a rubber band (you can use a rubber band from a hand expander).

Making Angle stand For Grinder DIY

The construction is done as follows:

  • in the metal strip, on one side, drill holes for the door shed, and on the other, for the bolt, with which the strip will be attached to the angle grinder;
  • screw an angle grinder and a canopy to the strip;
  • screw the canopy to the table;
  • attach one end of the elastic to the edge of the table and the other to the holder (handle) of the angle grinder.

In just a few minutes you will receive a quality cutting machine. This device is also mobile, because it can be carried with you in a suitcase with tools, and, if necessary, can be mounted on any flat surface.

When installing this device, do not forget to fix the corner on the table to rest the workpiece on it.

DIY cutting machine

For sawing small-sized parts, channels, elbows, pipes, fittings, a self-made pendulum cutting machine is used. If you use the appropriate stones, then they can grind things, cut off tiles, ceramics.

The cutting machine is made by hand from the parts described below:

  • bed. made of thick metal and four squares:
  • racks for the rolling unit, made of the same metal;
  • a swinging mechanism on which the angle grinder is reinforced;
  • a guide made from a cut of a square;
  • handles (for convenience) and a limiter for lowering the swing unit.

Bed. plate (metal not less than 5 mm) with slots. Ordinary elbows are welded or screwed on as legs. If you don’t have a matching piece, take a few strips of thick metal and attach them to the corner legs. Then you don’t have to make slits.

The uprights are made of shaped pipes, but it is easier to screw in rectangular metal plates of 10 mm or more, drill holes in them from the side and insert the swinging unit on the axle. A long bolt with a nut and a locknut is used as it.

The swing unit is made of strips screwed together, or a blank is cut out of a sheet. At a distance of one third of the length, a 10 mm axle or a long bolt is fixed. In the rear, a smaller axle or a ring for a return spring is reinforced. The handle and attachment point of the angle grinder are connected in front

Tip: In order not to accidentally get injured, securely weld this knot with your own hands /

The stop and guide stop are regular squares. The first is welded from below to the swing unit. The stop is installed on the bed. A ring for a return spring is welded to it at the back.

But a cutting machine like this is a little dangerous. The part in it has to be held with one hand, and the other to press the handle. For safe work, either two people are needed (one holds the product, the second presses the handle) or the installation of an ordinary vise on the bed.

Option 2

Another version of the device for an angle grinder, with which it will be possible to cut metal workpieces, is done as follows.

  • Take 2 sections of profile pipe of the same height and weld them to the rectangle pre-cut from sheet metal.
  • Drill holes in 2 racks and in the lever (the length is selected experimentally), then fix the latter with a bolt, as shown in the photo below.
  • Attach a spring to the back of the lever.
  • At the intended attachment point of the angle grinder on the rod, drill a through hole.
  • You can now attach the angle grinder to the table.

Thus, a simple cut-off machine has turned out. To give additional rigidity to the attachment of the device to the lever, you can use clamps, having previously laid between the body of the angle grinder and the pipe, for example, a wooden block.

For accurate cutting, so that the workpiece does not move, you will need to screw the corner to the table.

For a small angle grinder, a similar version of the device is also suitable, only the angle grinder will be attached to a metal strip: on the one hand, with a bolt to the angle grinder itself, and on the other, with a clamp.

For a powerful angle grinder, the adaptation is made according to the same principle, but from larger profiles than in the figures above.

It is not necessary to use dumbbells as a counterweight. It is enough to find a suitable spring.
