Having recently spent a few hours cleaning the rust off some odd shaped
trailer parts (strap hinges, lock hasp, etc.) using a 6" inch wire wheel on
bench grinder, I can see that that set up would not have worked. I needed
to attack the parts from more angles than that set up would safely allow.
Therefore, while it's an interesting set up, and Saied is right in stating
that a bench grinder is weak(er), I won't be replacing my bench grinder
anytime soon. In fact, considering how close to the wire wheel my hands
sometimes got - even touching a few times - the weakness is probably a good
I don't have the welding skills, to make the jig.
Have to stick with my bench grinder, for now. I do
have angle grinder, but holding it hasn't been an

The guy who made said it was to replace his bench grinder, not that it
was a bench grinder. Although once it's clamped in the vise it's more
or less a bench grinder, just with more open space around the wheel.
You missed the point of the question or didn't listen to the speaker in the
video. The guy who built the tool said that he no longer uses his bench
grinder since he rigged up his angle grinder with extra handles.
Ashton was asking if anyone would do the same thing.
My answer was no. While that set-up has its uses, there are things I can do
with my bench grinder that I wouldn't try with the angle grinder in a vice.
