You can support me via: Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CosmasBauer Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cosmasbauer/ Filing is not a lot of fun. Power filing is. So I made a belt sander attachment for my angle grinder. Commercially sold power files are either cheap pieces of crap or very expensive. All it takes is a grinder a couple of files, a drill, a welding machine and a bit of time. The hole saw I used is a bi-metal hole saw.

It's a pity that you didn't have the power file that you made to help make the power file pieces if you know what i mean ha ha

You are a true craftsman, however you should definitely get a tig welder for your intricate welds. Don’t get me wrong your stick welds are great but your work deserves better.

For those that don't have access to making the clamp section, the guards meant for larger grinders usually have a deeper wall, at @1 2 dollars, one can be bought, cut, and repurposed. Most hardware stores carry a small selection of aftermarket parts for tools. IF one is lucky, one could find a flat wall guard, that's perfect since you can just drill in to the face and make a support directly from that without even modifying a thing. Bosch guards usually are build that way, and out of quite thick material.

Great video, thanks for sharing! Some food for thought, when making a video for people to watch, might want to edit out the welding......just sayin'.......Thanks Again!

Shevill Mathers (1 year ago)
Very impressed, love your versatile use of the angle grinder and that neat trick making the lock pin/screw with the bench drill and angle grinder. The ingenuity of the DIY enthusiast never fails to amaze me.

i use a little work sharp belt sharpener a great deal for little shaping and deburring tasks. never knew it could be used as such but use it for this more than for sharpening by far. light and handy too, but not heavy duty like this sweet ass build
MrTad99 (1 year ago)
Cosmas, have you found any problems with those belts running at angle grinder speeds? I can't remember but I feel like our little pneumatic finger file at work is in the 3000 - 4000 rpm range only ... Quite amazing work though! Thanks for the great builds.

Really enjoyed this video, I am impressed by how you improvised with some fairly basic equipment WELL DONE
Молодец, весьма отменно, круто изготовлено, процесс впечатляет. Итог полная ЖОПА для выбивания глаз, травмирования (серьёзного) рук и пальцев, это в наилучшем случае (без очи). Мастер неплохой, инженер хреновый.

Great job. I bought about 60 new belts for a grinder like that at a yard sale, I'll have to try your project to see if I can get some use out of my new belts.

What were the measurements that you came up with for this build? Does the program you used to draw it up have a way to scale it to the size of belt?

Chris Barth (1 year ago)
You really did an awesome job on this! It takes a smart creative mind, combined with mechanical skills to fabricate tools like this. Not many people possess this ability. People who sit in an office all day are usually are the ones with the highly coveted, "well respected", overpaid professions. But, without people like this, our world would grind to a halt. In the school system where I live I recently found out that shop class was no longer offered because it was felt more time should be focused on computers. What a misguided tragedy that is! It just shows the lack of respect society has for anyone who works with their hands for a living.
