The stand for the drill and angle grinder with their own hands

The rack for a drill and angle grinder with my own hands

Stand for the angle grinder (angle grinder) with his hands or self-made cutting machine

As I said before, in the garage two problems. to cut off evenly and drill evenly. Drilling problem solved, the drill stand was well worth the time and money. The angular grinder has been sitting in the corner for a long time, waiting for its time. Exactly the angle grinder. made back in 1977. In Bulgaria, the “ELPROM LOVECH”, terribly heavy but, according to rumors, a very reliable angle grinder. I tried to work with it. I thought I was, if not a hard worker, then certainly an experienced one. Always worked a big Makita 9069, the thing is quite powerful and heavy. But the angle grinder in comparison with the Makita. a wild beast. With similar power to the Makita 1.9 kW it is noticeably heavier, in addition, specifically mine under 180 mm disks and output speed 8500 rpm. In general I decided then, that in hands it any more will not take (pescotno) and a way to it only in a rack. And the rack wanted to make a very long time. And of course the rack should be as usual. “light, strong and reliable”. I’ll tell you right away, the only justification for the work done is “well, it’s for myself, for many years, a good tool can’t be simple”.

I started like everyone else. welded a rectangle for the base.

For the joint I took the rear hub, I think it was Chery Tiggo. Cut off the center ledge, scraped off the ABS sensor.

It is fastened to the channel in which is cut out a hole for fastening. Cut it with an angle grinder, pretty hard. I was fine-tuning it with a file.

The main bracket for the angle grinder began to do from the angle grinder. First fitted the angle bracket to the original mounting points of the handles, then welded a third angle bracket between them.

Then I have bent a bracket. clamp on the body of an angle grinder from 2 mm of steel.

I welded a bolt to this clamp and connected it with an angle to the fixing part. To all the resulting structure welded pipe 50X50 with mounting holes to the hub.

Using a bolt I adjust the position of the angle grinder relative to the table. Next, I weld a 60th angle to the base. it will be used for fixing the channel. I estimate positioning and I drill a channel and a corner under it. Mounting bolts will be different. M10 and M12, this is associated with the second adjustment, the channel should rotate a little due to the larger holes for bolts.

Then I welded two more pipes. guides for the clamping mechanism, and also reinforced the construction with two pieces of 50th angle.

Then on top of it all I am welding plates with thickness of 4 mm. No matter how I tried I didn’t manage to make a perfectly even surface, there are 1-1,5 mm differences, but in practice it doesn’t influence the accuracy of cut.

Now it is possible to collect installation. I additionally reinforce the channel and the main bracket with angles. The total weight of the installation is not critical, but already quite interesting.

Then there was a long and painstaking. rigging for work. This is the stop and the workpiece clamp, this is the return spring, this is the table expander. Let’s start with the workpiece stop. We take a piece of 50 angle piece, weld a small rectangle to it.

Now we need to cut an arch in it, so we can cut the workpieces at any angle. With the help of a template I drill the holes along the arc first. Then I mill the arc completely.

Now the clamping device. The screw is from an old and bent eighth jack. I justifiably thought it would be better than a normal Chinese stud. I ground the end of the screw to 6mm and cut the thread.

For the moving part the hardest part is making the axle. I made them from a part of that Chinese bar, I’ll tell you right away. I didn’t use lathe, I ground to necessary diameter with angle grinder, even with some tools.

Now we have to fasten the nut. The clamping device was planned to be removable, so it’s bolted on, with threads cut right into the work table. The jack nut was welded with 4mm pieces of steel.

Since the clamp was ready, I decided to cut the pipe for the legs of the table, to see how it all worked. As a result I made a cutout on the stop of the workpiece. the gear case of the angle grinder rested in it. Also later I trimmed the width of the decoy.

By the way, you can see the wing-nuts in the photo. I worked with them for one cut. Never use wing nuts in those places, the manual force is not good enough to make the stop work. It’s a priceless experience. the nuts got loose, the disk shattered to pieces. Now there’s the usual nuts, I always tighten very tightly.

And then the return spring. Well as a spring I thought it would be a spring, but it turned out something cooler. I realize that I have complicated everything myself, but the result was worth it. Here I imagined what a powerful spring is needed to hold the angle grinder, and that the effort at the end of the cut should not be small. Besides, after the cut it is necessary to smoothly take the angle grinder upwards. And I wanted to cut and release it, and it just SAILED back into position by itself. What is needed for this? The gas strut, of course, is from a nines, lying on the shelf for a long time. And another thing. the return system should be hidden, that is work from below. This means that we will need additional rods and levers. It’s actually quite easy to do, I’d even say fast. First, I made a cut in the table for the lever. The lever itself is made from angle piece, I gave it the necessary shape by a lot of testing. It is attached to the hub by the stud bolt.

You will need some more details. the gas pipe, long rod, bent clamp from the bolt M6. The stop is as it was. It worked the first time. At first it seemed that it lifts a little sharply, but when the angle grinder got all sorts of handles and the hood, it turned out just right.

Parts of the return mechanism. Mechanism in compressed and uncompressed positions.

That’s pretty much it. Also was made sparks catcher. just a tin screwed on the way of sparks. Also put a separate handle for the drive. the tube bolted to the main bracket, and the pipe. the standard side handle of the angle grinder. Of course I made an extension of the table, tube-in-tube principle. Here was the problem, inside the pipe 50X50 is a pipe 45X45. It exists in principle, but in fact it is nowhere to be found. I had to weld a 4mm strip onto a 40X40 pipe. On the expansion will be constantly two of the device. an additional stop blank. is needed to cut the part was not picked up by the disc and did not fly away, and an additional stop for “cloning” parts. if you need two or more parts of the same length do not need to measure the length of each cut.

Table extension and the fixture on it.

Yes, I forgot about the guard. The original cover was lost a long time ago and was already under the 230th disc. I built it up where possible to the maximum and made a hinged part to it, as on the factory assembly saws.

Advantages and disadvantages of a homemade rack

Homemade drill stand has a number of advantages, the most significant of which should include the following:

  • Making such a drill stand is much cheaper than buying a serial model of such a device;
  • To make such a stand for a drill can be made from improvised means, using components from old and unused equipment, which can always be found in any garage or home workshop;
  • Drawings of such devices of various designs and even video instructions on their manufacture are in the public domain, it is not very difficult to find them;
  • if desired, it is always possible to create a machine from a drill of your own design, which by its characteristics and ease of use will be superior to all available models.

The simplest factory-made Chinese rack can be bought quite inexpensively

The simplest factory rack made in China can be bought quite inexpensively (from 1200), but its functionality and quality will not satisfy all masters. too often there are complaints of a significant backlash in budget models

But, of course, the self-made device for fixing the drill has its own disadvantages, which should include the following:

  • In order to make some parts of such racks, you need to use lathes, welding and other equipment, which, of course, increases their cost;
  • due to the fact that the structural elements of such devices for drilling are not adjusted too qualitatively, they often have a backlash, and this negatively affects the accuracy and quality of processing performed with their help;
  • self-made stand for the drill quite limited in its functionality, it can not perform, for example, holes located at an angle.

Wooden drill stand: a variant

Rack variant with fairly detailed assembly instructions in a photo set format that illustrates the manufacturing steps. To build this model you will need two pieces of wood (at least 20mm thick), a small box with furniture rails and a threaded rod for the prop’s moving part, a couple dozen short and about three long screws, glue, plus the usual tools such as a saw, a screwdriver, a clamp, a drill bit and sandpaper for the finish.

A stand variant with rather detailed assembly instructions in a photo set format illustrating the manufacturing steps. To build this model you will need a board thickness of at least 20 mm, a small box with furniture rails and a rod with a thread for the movable part of the rack, a couple dozen short and a dozen three long screws, joinery glue plus the standard tools in such cases, such as a saw, a clamp, a screwdriver, a drill and sandpaper for finishing.

Drill stand made of metal: Option

If you don’t have time to study the drawings and different variants of stand construction we suggest you to watch an informative video about how to create a very functional mechanism that can meet the needs of most home masters.

The result of the work is such a stand with the original cable drive carriage

Fixing the stand on the platform

Your construction must be stable on the workbench. This stability is provided by a wide platform, which is better to make from solid wood. Keep in mind: together with the drill the stand will weigh a lot, so the platform should be no less than 20×30 cm.

Rack control mechanism

As mentioned above, the author suggested two ways to control the rack. Both of them are quite effective, but in practice they have shown themselves differently.

What the practice has shown: this mechanism is convenient to operate, but does not give the necessary pressure on the drill, the rack moves jerkily. This is not the best of all the existing options, although you can get used to it. In practice, the second option turned out to be much more convenient.

Where to buy

Stands and tripods for such machines are sold in specialized stores, as well as on the relevant Internet portals. Look for this product under auxiliary tools or additional devices for electrical equipment. Average price per unit.

To buy a product, you first need to select the necessary device, select it in the shopping cart. Go there and place your order. Provide all necessary details, including contact information, payment and shipping methods. The seller will contact you for details on the item and its delivery time.

In addition, these stands are available in large quantities at construction markets. The advantage of buying in these places is that there is an opportunity to buy a quality and inexpensive stand, which has a high degree of reliability and will bring the appropriate benefit. Also, when buying a rack in the market, you can ask the seller in great detail about the characteristics of the product and how to use it.

Necessary tool and material

In order to make homemade stands for angle grinder with your own hands you will need the appropriate tool. It includes:

With this tool it is possible to create a metal construction of high strength. Metal angles and profiles are used as material.

The necessary tools and material

In order to make homemade stands for angle grinder with your own hands, you will need the appropriate tools. It includes:

With this tool it is possible to create a metal construction of high strength. Metal corners and profile are used as material.


You should always remember that the rack must be firmly fixed to the bed. To protect yourself from injury and accidents, you need to adhere to the basic recommendations:

  • The power cord is best secured with plastic clips, so it will not get tangled under your feet and accidentally fall under the cutting tool during its active use.
  • The cable from the angle grinder must be attached securely to the moving part of the stand.
  • During work, it is advisable to use special goggles, so that microscopic particles of metal do not get into the eyes.
  • Before you start the machine, you should carefully inspect the cutting wheel of the angle grinder for chips and damage.

Today there are many protective elements that can be made even at home. As for the optimal size of the tripod, it is better to give preference to those models that fit the diameter of the disc used. All parts of the frame must match the brand of the angle grinder used.

Experts say that it is good to work behind a pendulum stand, which simplifies the very process of sawing metal workpieces. In addition, the pendulum system is arranged in such a way that with its help you can quickly and efficiently implement tasks of any complexity. To make such a device at home is simple enough. To do this, you need to take: a quality metal profile, a spring, a welding machine, a pendulum and angles.

Special attention should be paid to the iron table, on which most often masters install the construction they have created. It must be checked for stability, reliability and wobbling

In addition, in the process of making even the smallest parts of the stand, you should not forget about safety measures.

Stand for the angle grinder with their own hands, drawings of the frame

A very simple stand for an angle grinder can be made from just a few pieces of rectangular profile in a couple of dozens of minutes. And in the end you get an excellent cutting machine with which you can cut metal workpieces smoothly and quickly.

Materials and tools

The first question a home handyman encounters when constructing a stand for an angle grinder is what to make it out of. The answer is elementary: we make it out of what we have. If you have water pipes on hand, they will be useful for making joints and guides. If you have a metal angle piece, use it to assemble the frame.

The pivoting pendulum saw is the main and most complex component. It carries the most weight, and the pendulum arm should not swing to the left or right at will. Give the knot the greatest attention to design. It is ideal to use roller bearings. Select a couple of suitable sizes. and then build the rest of the design around them.

It is best to make the mounting of the pendulum arm on ball or roller bearings. This will provide the best accuracy and rigidity. But if there are no suitable ready-made articles, one can look up variants of selfmade constructions of this unit.

If there are no prefabricated bearings, choose pairs of metal tubes and steel pins of suitable diameters. This will allow you to make not too high quality, but homemade bearings. For the “plywood” machine as the pendulum lever suspension good hinges, used for fixing doors and wicket doors, will do quite well.

In any case, it is better to make the pendulum arm itself from metal angle or metal profile. But the holder, in which the angle grinder will be fixed, will probably be made of a wooden bar.

For reliable and tight fixation of the angle grinder in the holder, it is better to glue the bed with soft and durable material. For example, with leatherette. And it is more convenient to clamp the angle grinder to the holder with flexible metal ties with a screw knot. These are widely used in plumbing and auto service.

The bed is best made of thick sheet metal. Compromises are possible up to thick plywood fastened to a wooden bar frame. It is a good idea to provide the work table with a possibility to fix stop angles at some standard angles to the axis of the cut. That’s how we get a “crosscut saw”.

Do not forget that now you can not control the angle grinder on the machine in the usual way. We can replace the operator’s hand on the control keys with the same screw ties for pipes. But the keyboard control post (which we will fasten to the base), the socket for inclusion in the chain of a fixed angle grinder and wire with a plug long enough to include the entire machine into the network should be pripasti.

If we have metal workpieces, it is best to connect them by welding. If you do not have such an opportunity, it is better to turn to the familiar craftsmen of this business. Bolt joints will come undone over time and undo all the advantages of a metal frame.

Of course, in the manufacture of the machine is useful and the angle grinder. Cutting blanks for the rack with it, you can feel like Munchausen, pulling himself out of the swamp by the pigtail.

Hi Algidras, I’ve seen so many videos about the rack, it’s the easiest, most reliable thing I’ve ever seen.You got it just right.Only I do not understand, the rack has grooves for the bearing?

Everything is simple, and most importantly it works. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR VIDEOS. Happy to subscribe so as not to miss anything.

All very interesting and correct. But watching your videos really want to ask :. Do you ever wink your eyes, it’s unusual to look at a face that doesn’t move, almost without emotion? Thanks for the answer.

Cool roller. Bro in place of a lever make a chain from a bike or motor car sprocket
