The angle grinder for your own hands
Proceed to the procedure of preparing grooves in the room can be immediately after the manufacture of homemade. When penetrating the hole, it is necessary to take into account one important nuance. the work should be carried out in the room, where the location of electrical wiring is known in advance. If the tool encounters a live wire, then the result of such a meeting can lead to fatal consequences for the master.
Carry out the work of piercing as an ordinary piercing cutter, and the angle grinder should take into account the following tips and recommendations:
Carry out procedures can be in the vertical or horizontal directions Strobing under an inclination is possible in very rare cases when you want to bypass a decorative element or communications Horizontal drilling must be performed only at a distance of 15 cm from the floor slab Vertical grooves must be located at a minimum distance from doors and windows 10 cm During the work is important to consider the depth of the groove. Choose the depth depending on the type of communications, which are planned to be laid in a groove, as well as the thickness of the wall itself. If this wall is a load-bearing and external wall, the depth of the groove may not exceed 3 cm The groove width is also chosen depending on the technological task, but it is not recommended to exceed the permissible limit of 2.5-3 cm
If this wall is a load-bearing and external wall, the depth of the groove must not exceed 3 cm The groove width is also chosen depending on the technological task, but it is not recommended to exceed the permissible limit of 2.5-3 cm
After laying the utilities the groove should be sealed with cement mortar. The location of the groove should be aligned with the plaster of the wall. Masonry work is recommended to perform during the construction and repair phase, before plastering the walls.
It is not difficult to make a concrete reamer from an angle grinder, and if you set yourself the goal, everyone can achieve it. Drawing a conclusion about the work done, it should be noted that during shroveling you need to take breaks to let the power tool cool down. If the cover does not have a connector for connecting a vacuum cleaner, then the work must be carried out in a respirator. Goggles must be worn in any case, because various small particles can get into the eye.
Depending on the type of material that is being reamed, it is necessary to select the appropriate speed of the tool. If on the way there is an armature in the concrete wall, it is recommended to make it sawing with an abrasive wheel
It is necessary to use the wood screwdriver with special care, not forgetting about the reverse blow

Wall bracket for clamps
Wall clamps are often piled up or standing in the corner of the home workshop. Build a shelf support for them from scrap wood and a piece of sheet material.
Our handmade fixture holds up to six rail clamps. You can increase the size of the wall bolt carrier to hold more tools by approximately 30 mm each. Note that if the holder expands significantly, it will be necessary to reinforce the bar or put an additional support in the middle.
Milling dimensions for a wall clamp holder.
Cut the pieces to size and grind the visible surfaces. Align the pieces and drill the counterbores.
Screw the bar to the supports with 4.5x40mm screws.
Turn the workpieces over and mount the backboard.
Hang the holder on the wall through the drilled mounting holes.
There is a place to store the C-shaped clamps right under this fixture.
Wall-mounted prefabricated clamp holder.
The holders for them are very simple and are made separately for each set of clamps. The dimensions of the hanger are chosen on the basis that the width of the projecting shelf should be slightly less than the distance between the jaws.
The holder for C-shaped clamps storage.
Steel sheet cutting frame
We cut to size blanks from profiled pipes, and weld them to a frame with the approximate size of 350-500 mm. This will be the base for our stand.
Assemble the bracket for fixing the angle grinder. We mark and drill 10 mm holes. in the profile, and then saw it to size. We mount the obtained parts of the profiles on the angle grinder and weld them together.
Then we cut two pieces of profile from which the stand for the angle grinder itself will be assembled. Profile length of about 30 cm. In the center of the profile we drill a hole to fit hinged axle.
We assemble hinged axle from M10 bolt 150 mm long. Install it in the pre-drilled holes at the ends of the strut, ensuring free rotation with the extended nuts.
Weld the extended axle nuts together, and check that they can turn freely on the axle.
We cut two more pieces of the profile, whose length is chosen according to the size of angle grinder. This will be the arm of the pole.
On the cut profile pieces we mark out the contour of elongated nuts and saw out the contour on the profile ends. This is optional, but it will provide a tighter fit to the metal for welding.
Weld these profiles to the elongated nuts. To observe the parallelism and identity of installation, we fasten the profiles with a clamp.
The resulting rack with the lever on the axis is welded to our base.
Connect the lever of the rack with a bracket attached to the angle grinder with a specially prepared angle with longitudinally sawed holes. That’s how we will ensure the angle of the angle grinder disc to set the exact angle of cut.
Further we take out a standard bolt from the handle of the angle grinder and insert the extended bolt, which will pass through our bracket and fasten it securely to the angle grinder.
Weld two pieces of profile pipe to the stand base. Align them in one plane with the base. It will be a support for the cut parts.
Align the angle grinder on the disk and the base with the square. Bolt it to the frame.
Let’s weld two more pieces of the profile to the frame-base. They will be guides for the swivel angle bolt on the bed.
We saw a longitudinal hole in the bend angle, which will allow us to move the angle along the guide and fix it in the right place with the bolt.
We will make the legs for the frame from bolts with rounded heads. With them it will be convenient to adjust the horizontal level of the base frame, and expose it clearly.
Drill holes in the bracket attached to the angle grinder and the top of the stand. Fix steel hooks in it.
We measure the necessary length of the spring and hook it on the hooks so that it will return the angle grinder to the upper position.
Make a test cut. Check the cut off piece of the workpiece for the right angle.
The stand can be painted in any color you like, or simply primed with a metal primer.
You got a good quality stand for the angle grinder. With such a device there will be no difficulties in cutting metal workpieces at any angle.
Note: all welds, sharp corners of all parts of the rack must be deburred and rounded. Prepare the rack for painting and paint it in any color you like.
Connecting to the utilities
Connection to the general water supply network is carried out according to the following algorithm:
- On the blue spigot of the boiler (designed to connect the hose with cold water) we wrap the oakum, which is lubricated with unipak.
- A T-piece is screwed onto the branch pipe and a drain cock is then installed on the side of the branch pipe.
- A discharge valve is screwed onto the bottom of the tee with an arrow down.
- A shutoff valve and thread adapter are installed on the bottom.
- The second part of the hose connects to the cold water pipe.
After that we screw the cut-off valve and the adapter to which the hose is connected to the red hose fitting. The latter is then connected to the water mains.
A penny everyday stand for the angle grinder
Step One. Manufacturing the baseWe use a sheet of particleboard, plywood or other sheet material as a base. Screw a bar to the base, to which we will attach the joint. And then we attach our door hinge to the bar. At the end of the door hinge we drill a hole for the fastening bolt, which is screwed into the hole for the front handle of the angle grinder. Screw the hinge well with self-tapping screws to a bar. Don’t forget to attach legs to the base, that won’t slip on the table.
Step two. SpringFor the joint we fasten the angle grinder, it is screwed down with a bolt, and additionally with a steel clamp. To make the angle grinder return to initial position, we put a spring on the base plate. You can buy such a spring in a hardware store, they put them on the doors. The author shortened the spring by simply cutting off the excess.
One end of the spring clamped to the handle of the angle grinder, the author drilled a hole in the handle and the spring is attached by a screw with a nut. And the other end is fastened to the bar through the hook or other fasteners.
Step Three. AdjustmentTake the angle, put on the angle grinder new cutting disc and see if the disc is perpendicular to the plane. If there is a curvature, let go of the clamp and turn the angle grinder to the right angle.
Step four. Stands and testsThe author made the stakes from pieces of planks, the bulls material was cut with a ready-made homemade. On the angle grinder it is possible to put a disk from a circular saw, but be careful with it, never stand in front of the angle grinder that it at jamming has not flown in you. It’s safe to put a special three-toothed wood disc on an angle grinder.
Also the author puts petal discs on the angle grinder, it turns out a kind of sharpening machine. And, of course, the machine tool easily cuts steel pipes, plates, and other materials.
This completes the project, I hope you liked the project, and you have found useful ideas for yourself. Good luck and creative inspiration if you decide to repeat something like this. Do not forget to share with us your ideas and self-made!

Portable shelf for storage of the angle grinder and disks to it
In order to make this homemade shelf you will need the following tools:.Electric jigsaw,-electric screwdriver with drill bits,-milling machine for more convenient selection of slots for the disks (not crucial),-grinder, sandpaper, ruler and a pencil.
The shelf will be assembled from 12 mm plywood. Т.к. all the parts I will implement all the fasteners on the screws, then with the thinner material will not be very convenient to work. To begin with, on a sheet of plywood, I marked out the dimensions of the angle grinder, for which this product will be made. Next, I drew two parts of the side walls, which with the help of a jigsaw and sawed. The whole shelf will be from a material of the same thickness, so immediately on the sides noted where and how other parts of the homemade device will be located. I drilled holes for self-tapping screws. Without them I do not recommend assembling the parts. In those places where parts will be located close to the end of the plywood, it can break, and the ends, in which will enter the screw may under its influence move apart. The detail will have to redo or leave as is, but to the detriment of the strength of the connection.
Now you need to cut out the rest of the parts of the construction set. First of all I sawed a detail on which will be hung the angle grinder. This is the rectangle where I sawed the semicircular notch, a little tapered at the bottom. As the angle grinder will be suspended on it by a shaft, it will sit in this notch very tightly, avoiding displacement to the sides.
Next I made the bottom of the shelf, where I made longitudinal through notches for the disks. Their length depends on what diameter discs you plan to store there. I have it 125 mm, so the length of the notch I made less than this figure. That way they won’t fall out.
Now I’ll join the pieces together. Insert 30 mm self-tapping screws into the pre-drilled holes. I attached the parts and screwed. Do not apply great force so as not to damage the workpiece. I am making them “flush” with the sides of the shelf.
The next step, I drew on a piece of plywood detail to which will be winding cable from the angle grinder. I sawed and drilled holes in its legs. On the sidewall of the shelf I’m trying to figure out where this part will be set so it will be convenient for me to wind the cable. On the opposite side I also make holes, so that if in the future I need to re-hang a shelf or something else, whatever the situation may be, and the cable holder happens to be on the other side, it was convenient for me to move it to the other side. Fasten it.
Next step. Making the E-shaped piece. This shape is due to the fact that the middle part of the part, in addition to the fact that it will be possible to hang several additional discs, will also support the body of the angle grinder. I put the part itself with a slight upward slant. Also, it is another stiffener between the sides of the shelf.
Next, I make the back of the shelf. It will completely cover the back of the finished product. In the backrest I also make a handle to carry the shelf. In the same way it will play the role of a hanger, t.е. and use it to hang the shelf on the wall. In the original picture I got the idea from, it was attached to the surface with a French batten. I don’t need it. I do not plan to keep this thing in one place. After all, exactly for the convenience of transportation and was made back part with a handle for carrying.
At the bottom of the side wall on the handle side I make a notch. It is needed in order to wind the tool cable up without constantly having to throw it over the wall, which is quite inconvenient. And so we put the cable in the recess and easily wind it on the handle. Exactly the same notch can be made on the other side, as with the holes for the cable winding part. I did not, because I do not plan to change the location of the handle. But in case we need to do this, it’s a minute matter.
A simple and failsafe stand with a broach for an angle grinder
Step one. Blanks for the carriageWe cut blanks for the carriage, we will make it from a not too thick square tube. We will need 4 pieces of equal length. Drill holes in the sections so we can assemble the carriage with bolts afterwards. Of course, the holes must be drilled at equal intervals. Well, the author uses radial bearings as rollers.
Step Two. Bracket for angle grinderDo mount bracket for the angle grinder, as the material we use steel plates. the angle grinder has to clamp to the bracket with two bolts at the front, and in the back of the bracket there will be a stop in the form of a bolt, by which we can adjust the angle of the disc.
Step three. Assembling the carriageBefore assembling the carriage let’s prepare the “rail” that will move on the carriage, as such “rail” the author also used a piece of square tube. At the end of the pipe, we drill holes, and here we will attach the bracket, in which the angle grinder is mounted.
Angle Grinder Safety Chapter 6: Sanding and Wire Brushing
Assemble the carriage on bolts, nuts and washers. Put radial bearings as rollers. Select washers so that the rail moves in the carriage with minimal backlash. To adjust everything accurately, you can use nuts with a plastic lock.
Step four. Racks and axisFrom pieces of profile pipe and angles we make racks, to which the axis of the carriage will be attached. As an axis the author used a threaded rod, and the nuts the author set directly in the ends of struts, they are welded there. It looks like a kind of “threaded bearing”.
Step five. Assembly and testingAssemble the kit, put the stands on the base, the author used a sheet of plywood, but you can fasten the rack directly to the table. Before installing the struts, don’t forget to screw the struts to the carriage axle.
To the rail bolt bracket for the angle grinder, and already on the bracket to put the angle grinder itself. On the angle grinder the author has installed a clamp for attaching sewage pipes, in this clamp the adjusting bolt rests.
Everything is ready, adjust the disk with the square and you can cut. The author easily works on a steel machine, he used a steel angle as a stop, and cut a slot in the base for the disk with an angle grinder. If you put a disc for wood on the machine, you can easily cut boards, plywood and other materials. The author also cuts bricks by means of a machine tool, having set a disk on an angle grinder on concrete.
This concludes the project, I hope you liked the homemade, and you found useful ideas for yourself. Good luck and creative inspiration if you decide to do something like this again. Don’t forget to share with us your ideas and homemade!
Interesting ideas for organization
If you don’t know what a garage storage system should look like. you can get ideas for organization below.
The easiest system to store most tools. Tool board is a wooden or metal sheet with holes and pins. These are used to hold the tools, which is very convenient.
How to use it? Note the handles on your adjustable wrenches, hammers, angle bars, or brushes. They have a through hole, by which you can hang the equipment. For hammers, two pins are put beside the hammer, and it is hooked with the “head”. Pliers, pliers similar tool clings by the place of the arches of the handles.
To store drills, screwdrivers and other small things put shelves. Many commercially available panels have “out of the box” stands. If you make it yourself, you can screw it on with self-tapping screws.
The tool panel is easy to make: take plywood, mark out and screw in self-tapping screws. All that’s left is to hang it on a wall or make a frame.
This is what a homemade tool rack looks like.
Metalware storage system should be at hand, which means it needs to be compact. In stores they sell containers like these made of plastic. They can be easily placed on the workplace in the garage and do not interfere.
If you constantly have to work with a bunch of different fasteners, use these plastic containers. Such organizer for self-tapping screws is suitable as temporary storage.
By the way, in the sale there are such stands for tools, where there are mountings for such containers.
You can save a lot of money and make an organizer for drills and hardware with their own hands. To do this, cut the plastic canisters, as in the photo.
The storage boxes for tools are convenient if you need to keep a pile of supplies and small items somewhere. The following varieties are on sale:
- Organizer for wrenches. They are often sold in cloth packaging, which is inconvenient for storage. In this case it will be more correct to buy a stand, which is screwed to the wall.
. You can order these plastic holders from China. They are convenient, but they do not last long. All parts are made of plastic, so the tool storage system will not last long.
If you need a multifunctional tool organizer on the wall. get a shelf like this. It is multifunctional and can hold pliers, screwdrivers and drills.
Many people have old toolboxes that have nowhere to put them. To them you can make a tray with your own hands, so that nothing will fall out. In this video you will find Inst
Tool rack for garden tools
Not only working tools take up space in the garage. Do not forget about garden tools, which always take up a lot of space, and putting them in a storage box is not possible.
However, it is easy to solve this problem. to allocate one wall for garden tools. And here are ideas on how they can be placed:
- A purchased rack. They are not very expensive and are sold in all construction stores. Convenient in that you can place the tool nicely. The disadvantage of a purchased bar is its inflexibility. You can’t add new tool compartments, and you’ll have to buy another wall mount.
- Home-made rack of PVC pipes. Cheap and “cordial”. To make it, you need to install a bar near the floor. Screw the PVC pipe clippings to the wall at a certain height. The handle will rest on the bar, and the scraps will not let it fall.
- Hooks. The usual furniture hooks will help to beautifully place the inventory on the wall. Can be installed at any height. Hooks can be added as needed and do not take up much space.
If you want to have a tool for the garage always at hand. buy a magnetic strip. It’s cheap, available in all stores. Belts are available in different lengths.
Pay attention to the strength of the magnet. Some straps are only suitable for screwdrivers and other small items. Relatively expensive can withstand hammers over a kilogram, wrenches, etc.
