It's Possible to Use the Angle Grinder As a Belt Sander!





Introduction: It's Possible to Use the Angle Grinder As a Belt Sander!

The second angle grinder hack from the ‘make it extreme’ team is here and it aims to transform the angle grinder into a belt sander.

Step 1: Angle Grinder Hack 2

We needed a belt sander that would be able to rub wooden surfaces very quickly. However, we made this angle grinder hack instead as the belt sander would be costlier and also, because most of the manufacturers have and use at least one angle grinder hack in their work.

Step 2: Aluminum Wheels

We made two aluminum wheels with a ball bearing in their inside part so that the sandpaper tape will be able to spin on them. Also, we made a system that controls these two aluminum wheels to open and close with the help of a lever which was placed at the one side of our manufacture. For example, when we pull up the lever, the aluminum wheels come closer and then, we can put our sandpaper.

Step 3: Video

Therefore, we have in our hands an angle grinder which can be sat on its base and be linked with our structure. Finally, once we turn it on our belt starts moving and the belt sander starts working too.
