    Some people are better to learn by looking, some by reading, but there are always that special someone to whom nothing you do is good enough.

    What never fails, the unhappy one is always belong to the third category when they have nothing to show for themselves.

    Nicely done. I'm a little wary of mounting my own grinder this way, due to the speed of it vs. a bench grinder... but regardless, this looks like a pretty solid set-up!

    Thanks for sharing this.

    As with any power tools safety is paramount. I always have a leather apron and a face shield on when I use this set up . The pluses as I see them are - controlled direction of spinning, rigid position of the angle grinder, precise control when cutting small pieces. The main thing for me is to work with a manageable length/size of the metal part, it is simply a matter of understanding when I need to bring the tool to the material and when material can be brought to a tool.
