Introduction: Rarely Used Bench Grinder Support

As you can see, not much of a bench, not much of a bench-space.

Thought someone in my situation will like this.

I got a decent vice, and a Bench Grinder I need to use rarely.

Making the Bench Grinder portable was my only choice, so here it is.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1:

I drilled 2 holes in the piece of an angle iron I had.

I am not giving measurements due to the different brands, sizes

of the Bench Grinders available.


Step 2:

Once bolted on the Grinder ( I used safety nuts to prevent becoming loose), İt is ready to put into the vice.

Now I have a very secure, safe to operate bench Grinder.

Step 3:

I do not have any vibration problem, just in case I will, I am going to use these

Rubber Mounting Grommets between the Grinder and Angle iron.

I got them from wreckers, off car exhaust.


Very simple, very cheap way not to clutter the bench.

Hope someone will benefit.

Regards,

    if you can find the old cloth and black rubber mouse pads I find they hold bench grinders in place pretty good. But the grinder I use on one of those is pretty heavy, so that might be a factor? The gray grinder in the middle on the bottom is just on a mouse pad

    WoW!

    All those grinders! You got one for every occassion!

    Yes I agree, a heavy grinder may stand still while used but in my case I need the space when I don't use it.
