Introduction: Make a Wall Mount for Your Bench Grinder!
A detailed buid video is uploading and will be added ASAP!
This wall mount is really simple and can be adapted for any kind of tool. Just change the size to mount anything to a wall, weather it is a bench grinder, a bandsaw or a lathe!
Tools you need:
Materials you need:
- any kind of plywood roughly 20mm or 3/4″ thick
- wood glue
- wood screws about 50mm or 2″ long
- any wood primer
- any wood paint
- long machine screws to mount your tool
Step 1: Measure Your Tool
Measure the base of your tool. I made the wall mount just as big as the base of the tool. That way there are no potruding corners where you could get caught when you walk by. Make sure you account for the extra depth of the tool higher up
Step 2: Cut the Top and Backside.
I used 3/4″ or 20mm plywood. The thickness does not matter at all. Here I only cut the top and the back side of the wall mount. I wanted them to form a triangle with equal side lengths. Since one piece gets butted up to the other one, I had to account for the thickness by tracing one piece on top of the other. A handy trick for other projects too, since this kind of joint comes up all the time.
You should use a table saw to cut the strip to width and a mitre saw, or a table saw sled to cut it to length.
Step 3: Clamp and Pre Drill Screw Holes.
I used these cheap corner clamps to position everything. That is really easy. The clamps are only on the sides wich allows you to acess the edge to drill holes for screws. I used 4.5mm screws and pre drilled them to 3mm. It is best to mount the whole assembly into a vise using soft jaws. Working on workpieces that are not fixed in place is never a good idea.
Step 4: Glue and Screw!
You can open up one side of the clamp to remove the top board. This allows you to add glue in between. Then you can clamp the other board right back into place. The allignment should be perfect. Add some pressure with the screws and you have a perfect joint. A countersink bit is needed to make the screws flush.
Step 5: Cut the Side Supports.
You can clamp the 90° angle of a piece of plywood into the corner of the angle that we just build. Then you can trace a line that makes it into a triangle and cut it out with a jigsaw, handsaw, or a bandsaw.
Step 6: Add the Side Supports.
The side supports should be glued and screwed into place. I used a scrap piece of plywood clamped to the angle we build before to provide a flat surface to clamp the support to. Otherwise it would be very difficult to hold it in place. The glue does not do a whole lot here since it is end grain. 2 screws are enough to secure everything.
Step 7: Take a Step Back and Admire Your Work.
Well done! It should look like a tool post now! Give yourself a pat on the back, or ask a friend to do it for you! Whooop Whoop!
Step 8: Drill Mounting Holes for Your Tool Base.
Of course you should actually mount your tool to the wall holder you are making. I traced the hole pattern with a cut off pencil. When drilling very deep holes, it is best to pre-drill with a smaller diameter and to work yourself higher up. I also addded a chamfer at the top to make it easyer to insert the screws. This turned out to be unnecessary, since I could not add any bolts from that side anyway.
I also cut a little relief angle to allow the bolt heads to sit on a flat surface. This can be done with any kind of saw. You are only removing a little bit of material, so it is easy.
Step 9: Paint!
Add some primer, then give it a light sanding with 120 grit. Then add any paint of your choice. It doesn´t matter, it is just a tool post. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Step 10: Mount It Where You Like To.
Before you drill. Check out what hight is compfortable for you!
I placed this outside since there was a lot of unused space. I also don´t use this bench grinder that often that I need it inside my shop. You should fix it to brick or concrete walls with plastic dowels. Always drill in the joints, not the bricks!
Step 11: Add Your Tool and Admire Your Work!
Well done. You successfully organized your workshop. Well, at least a little bit. It is a start!

Loved all the knowledge tid-bits in the video. I’m a big Adam Savage fan, but had never heard of “first-order retrievablity”.
You are welcome. There are one or two videos on YouTube where he talks about it.
Como se diz aqui no Brasil: Da hora!, very cool. I like too much and I wi
The build looks good, but is the grinder weather-proof? Seems like an odd place to place a workshop electrical tool.
Thanks. There is a roof over it. It cannot get wet.
Dewalt Angle grinder electrical fault finding
Why do you advise to mount the machine in the joints of the wall instead of the brick? Fixing it with holes in the brick is much stronger and more reliable.
Dowels are stronger in bricks, but for this application the stength is not critical. Brick walls can last hundereds of years and holes in the joints can be fixed up much easier than in the bricks.
“but for this application the strength is not critical.”
Right, so don’t say “alway mount in the joint” in your article then. Better advice would be “mount in the joint for this project since you probably won’t get hurt too bad if the mount fails”.
Concrete and masonry anchors are designed to be mounted in the solid wall surface (i.e. the brick or block) not in the mortar joint.

Angle grinders are versatile power tools that can handle a variety of projects, such as cutting iron pipe to replace a faulty valve, carving wood to craft furniture, cutting tile for a backsplash, and removing grout from between tiles.
Interchangeable rotating discs—some made for cutting and others with an abrasive edge for grinding—can be swapped out based on the application. For safety, a guard sits between the disc and the handle to protect the operator.
If you’re ready to add this tool to your collection, read on for more on its capabilities and what to look for in the best angle grinder. Each of the top picks below was selected after an in-depth review of the market and thorough product vetting.

What to Consider When Choosing the Best Angle Grinder
There are a few things to understand before clicking “add to cart” on just any old angle grinder. The best angle grinders may have unique features, different power sources, and some might simply be better suited to particulars. The following points are worth considering when shopping for a good quality grinder.
Angle grinders come in sizes, denoted by a number that refers to the maximum diameter of the grinding wheel or disc it will handle. For most DIY projects, a 4-, 4.5-, or 5-inch disc will suffice. In fact, these compact sizes and weights are ideal for DIYers, as larger discs can become unwieldy or tedious to work with.
Larger discs (up to 9 inches) are more commonly used in industrial situations by professionals cutting through thick pieces of material. As the disc gets larger, the grinder itself must be larger to handle the cutting strength. This translates to a heavier tool that’s likely to cause hand fatigue sooner than using a small angle grinder.
Angle grinders are available as corded models (which plug into an electrical outlet) and cordless (which use a battery).
- Corded grinders typically generate more power at a consistent level due to the direct connection to the outlet. But corded models restrict the user to a physical location, limiting range without an extension cord. The cords can also be a tripping hazard and, therefore, a nuisance while working on a project.
- Typically, cordless grinders lack the sheer power of their corded counterparts. And functionality depends on battery capacity, so a dead battery could mean downtime in the middle of the project. On the plus side, cordless angle grinders offer hassle-free mobility and are better for use in tight spaces.
Angle grinder speed is measured in revolutions per minute (rpm). Speeds typically range between 5,000 and 10,000 rpm, though some very robust grinders reach up to 12,000 rpm. Keep in mind, however, that the rpm rating is under “no-load” conditions, meaning that the disc isn’t cutting or grinding anything, just spinning in the air. Once the disc is cutting or grinding, that speed will lower considerably.
Obviously, the higher the rpm, the easier and more quickly the tool can cut through the target material. But the disc also becomes hotter at higher speeds and could be vulnerable to rupture—an injury risk. Be sure to use the correct disc for the task, and note the maximum supported speed marked on the disc. For example, a disc rated at 7,500 rpm that is running faster can break under the force, sending shards of the grinder wheel flying.
Angle grinders measure power output potential in volts (V) and amperes (amps). Cordless angle grinders use volts to measure the power available from their battery, with most cordless models using 18-volt or 20-volt batteries and outliers ranging from 7.5 volts to 24 volts. The “magic number” in most cordless power tools is 18 volts to 20 volts, offering the best mix of affordability and functionality.
Voltage readings on corded angle grinders only indicate whether they can be used with 120-volt or 220-volt power outlets. Shoppers can assess the power output potential of corded models by checking amperage, which ranges from 5 amps to 15 amps. Larger discs will require a larger output, so for a 7- or 9-inch grinder, expect it to have a higher power output potential.
The guard on an angle grinder is a crucial safety measure that covers half the disc. Its purpose is to protect the user’s hands, by preventing sparks and debris from flying toward the user, and to protect surfaces from damage when using the grinder in tight spaces.
Some angle grinders have a movable guard, and others have a fixed guard. The movable option is more popular as it allows for left-handed or right-handed use and can adjust to better protect the user from flying debris. If left untightened, however, a movable guard can fall off the unit. Fixed guards are more robust, and there’s no risk of them coming off a grinder.
Because angle grinders are fast, powerful tools, they can recoil a bit upon power-up. This is particularly true if the grinding wheel is large and heavy. The recoil from the motor can result in the angle grinder jumping in the user’s hands, potentially causing serious injury.
To combat recoil, soft-start technology reduces the power output to the motor at first, slowly increasing until the angle grinder is fully up to speed. This throttled control over the power output prevents an angle grinder from recoiling during start-up, increasing safety while also reducing the jolt to the user’s arms and wrists.
Tips for Buying and Using an Angle Grinder
Keep these tips in mind when choosing and using an angle grinder.
- The most common DIY projects where an angle grinder will be of use—such as cutting tile or pipe, metalworking, or removing grout and mortar—rarely require more than a 4.5-inch grinder.
- The ongoing vibration of an angle grinder can cause what is known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), with symptoms including pain and cold sensations in the user’s fingers, loss of grip strength, and a loss of sensation in the fingers and hands. An angle grinder with cushioned or vibration absorbent material on the grip can protect hands from ongoing vibration.
- Always wear personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety glasses/goggles, hearing protection, and respiratory protection when grinding.
- Check the grinder before use to ensure the disc and guard are properly attached and tightened. Discs and guards can become loose between uses. Tighten them before connecting the power to the angle grinder.
Our Top Picks
While all that information on the best angle grinders ought to be helpful when shopping, there’s really no substitute for hands-on testing. Tom had the pleasure of personally putting all the following angle grinders through their paces during a recent metalworking project.
Each of the models reviewed passed our tests and met our standards (see “How We Tested,” below), though Tom found some models better for specific tasks than others. Note that all of the following models feature movable guards and screw-in handles.
Makita XAG04Z 18V LXT Cordless Cut-Off/Angle Grinder
The Makita XAG04Z is worth checking out by anyone looking for the best cordless angle grinder performance. This top-rated angle grinder features an 8,500 rpm top speed thanks to its brushless motor and the 18-volt lithium-ion battery. It can handle 4.5- and 5-inch discs.
We found the XAG04Z excellent to work with. While it doesn’t boast the highest top speed, the automatic speed adjustment enabled it to maintain speed during tough cuts and grinds. We noticed very little vibration thanks to the rubber over-molded grip and handle, and the lock-on switch proved to be a huge plus.
The only downsides I see: Assembling the two-piece handguard was a little awkward, and it would be nice if the tool came with a battery and a charger.
- Automatically adjusts speed and torque settings
- Slow start keeps the tool from jumping
- Lock-on switch
- Very little noticeable vibration
Get the Makita angle grinder at Amazon, Walmart, The Home Depot, and Ace Hardware.
Metabo HPT 4.5-in 6.2-Amp Angle Grinder
When it comes to DIY projects and budgets, not everyone can afford top-of-the-line tools every time. So those hoping to save cash and still get a quality grinder may want to give this corded model from Metabo HPT a look. It uses 4.5-inch discs, has a 6.2-amp motor, and spins at up to 10,000 rpm.
This is one of the best 4.5 inch angle grinder options for the money, and the Metabo HPT’s usefulness was somewhat of a surprise. I enjoyed how compact and lightweight it was in my hand. The location of the power switch is very convenient, especially during cutting.
The lock-on feature allowed me to kick it on and leave it on—very helpful in my project. My only complaint is that the Metabo HPT lacks the power of other corded models, and the 6.2-amp motor seemed like it could overheat during all-day use.
- Lock-on switch for long use
- Lightweight angle grinder (only 4 pounds)
- The most compact of all the grinders tested
- A little lacking in power compared to other corded models
- The 6.2-amp motor isn’t ideal for all-day use
Get the Metabo angle grinder on Amazon and at Lowe’s.
DeWALT 20V MAX XR Brushless Cut Off/Grinder
DeWALT’s 20V Max XR Brushless Cut-Off/Grinder cordless angle grinder could be the ultimate upgrade for pros and DIYers who take their tools seriously. This cordless model utilizes the brand’s 20-volt Max XR lineup, and its brushless motor spins 4.5-inch discs up to 9,000 rpm.
My experience with this DeWALT model was just as I expected: great portability and truly outstanding power. It made short work of cutting and grinding, without a cord to get in the way. The grip and handle both feature thick rubber, keeping vibration and fatigue to a minimum.
The safety features are certainly a plus: The electronic brake stopped the disc within 2 seconds (other models can take up to 10 seconds), and simply knowing that there is a kickback brake instilled confidence.

Porter-Cable Angle Grinder Tool, 4-1/2-Inch (PC750AG)
This Porter-Cable product is one of the top corded angle grinder options for dependable power. This model features a heavy-duty 7.5-amp motor that spins a 4.5-inch disc at speeds up to 10,000 rpm, providing plenty of speed and power for workshop use.
The Porter-Cable grinder felt truly in its element on my metalworking project, handling cuts and grinds nicely. While it doesn’t have the most power compared to others on our list, it’s pretty close. It’s also one of the only grinders to feature a traditional trigger switch, which I felt was easy to use and more intuitive than most. I also really liked the top-mount position for the handle attachment, as it can make cutting much more manageable.
The one negative worth mentioning is that vibration control isn’t top-tier, so although it can take all-day use, the user’s hands and wrists might tire.
- Top-mounted handle position
- Comfortable trigger switch
- The 7.5-amp motor has plenty of power

Black Decker Angle Grinder Tool, 4-1/2-Inch
If you’re searching for the best angle grinder for wood carving, sanding, grout removal, and other light-duty projects, Black Decker’s Angle Grinder Tool might be a wise choice. This affordable model features a 6-amp motor that produces up to 10,000 rpm of speed, and it’s compatible with 4.5-inch grinding and cutting wheels.
Black Decker markets this model at light-duty, DIY-type users, and that’s where it excels. This very affordable model is easy to use, thanks in part to its lock-on trigger. The three-position handle mounting system works for plenty of scenarios, such as cutting and grinding at unusual angles. Just don’t expect the Black Decker to handle heavy-duty jobs like large metalworking projects for any length of time, as it only has a 6-amp motor.
- Plenty of capability for the price
- Three-position handle, including top-mount
- Trigger locks into position
Get the Black Decker angle grinder at Amazon, Walmart, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Ace Hardware. Check for a refurbished Black Decker on Amazon.
DeWALT Angle Grinder Tool, 4-1/2-Inch (DWE402)
Heavy-duty projects like production welding and cutting require a grinder that can keep up, and DeWALT’s DWE402 can handle the job. This burly machine features an 11-amp motor and spins 4.5-inch grinding and cutting wheels at speeds up to 11,000 rpm.
I found the DWE402 to be the ideal grinder for my work, though not everyone will need its power and high-speed capabilities. It cut through angle iron faster than any other grinder, and it made short work of my large, lumpy, amateur-grade welds (though it’s definitely a pro-grade tool, and the speed-boosting button on the handle base helped a lot).
While this is one of the best variable speed angle grinders, neither the DWE402’s vibration control nor its grip got much attention on the drawing board.
- Pro-grade capability
- Very fast and powerful
- High amperage motor for heavy-duty work
Get the DeWALT angle grinder at Amazon, Walmart, and Lowe’s.
With portability and power in mind, the Makita XAG04Z is a great choice for almost any home workshop, though pros may also appreciate this model. And for those who need the best angle grinder for cutting metal and other heavy-duty weld materials, the DeWALT DWE402 has the power and speed to match.
How We Tested the Best Angle Grinders
Sometimes, I have the best job in the world. I’ve had a project on my plate for months now (building a welding cart), and it just so happened to be the ideal project to test these top angle grinders. I used the same set of cutting and grinding wheels for each model to make apples-to-apples comparisons.
I used each grinder to cut through angle iron, switching grinders between each cut until I felt comfortable with the strengths and weaknesses of each model. I recorded myself cutting all the pieces for the welding cart in order to determine how long each cut took and how easy it was to use. After cutting all the pieces, I welded the cart together (rather heavy-handedly, I admit, as it’s been a few years since I last welded).
With those big, burly welds to address, I used each grinder to knock them down to flush. Again, I noted ease of use and handling. In the end, I had all I needed for these honest angle grinder reviews—as well as a cart for my new welder.
Shopping for a Used or Refurbished Angle Grinder
Historically, most people would baulk at the idea of spending good money on a used or second hand tool, but today’s refurbished models are not the dubious equipment found at a neighborhood yard sale. For some time, reputable manufacturers and retailers have been offering refurbished or renewed products like angle grinders alongside new models.
The idea is that when a commercially viable fix is possible, it cuts down on waste—which is always a good thing. It may also offer buyers the opportunity to acquire products that might otherwise be outside their budget.
These should not be tools that have been beaten to death for 364 days and returned on the day the warranty expires. It’s true that often they have been tried by another buyer but will have been returned within a relatively short return window. Other times, they might be tools damaged in transit or in the warehouse.
So are refurbished angle grinders any good? In our opinion, yes. There’s every chance they could represent a real bargain. There are some interesting offers on refurbished or renewed angle grinders at Amazon and Walmart among others. However, care and common sense is needed.
- Specify the type of angle grinder you want first. Look at new models. Then see what you can get on the refurbished market that comes close to those specifications.
- Keep a tight rein on your budget. It’s easy to get carried away. The idea here is to save money, or get better value.
- You should be looking for a substantial cost reduction. If the saving is only saving 10 percent or 15 percent, it might be better to buy new. Make sure you know exactly what is included. Cordless tools often won’t include battery or charger, for example.
- Be sure to check warranty and return periods before you order. Don’t make assumptions, even if you bought from the retailer before.
While refurbished, reconditioned, or renewed tools are often excellent, there’s always a chance it could be a dud. Buy from a reputable source. Check the angle grinder as soon as it arrives so you can get your money back if there’s a problem.
Even with ample background on the best angle grinders, you might have some additional questions. Here, we answer some of the most common queries about angle grinders, so check for the info you need below.
Q: What kind of tasks can I use an angle grinder for?
The most common uses for angle grinders are metal grinding and cutting, such as steel for welding or metal piping. However, they’re also useful for wood carving, refinishing, and other projects. Some farriers even use them to trim hooves.
Q: How does an angle grinder operate?
After attaching the correct disc for the job, hold the angle grinder in two hands for safety and security (the tool’s initial torque will cause it to jump). Push the trigger down or hit the power switch, and the disc will start rotating. Move the grinder until the rotating disc contacts the material you want to cut or grind.
When finished, release the trigger or switch off the power button and wait for the disc to stop rotating completely before placing it in a safe location, keeping in mind that the disc is still hot due to the friction caused during operation. Unplug the power cord or detach the battery and allow the tool to cool down.
Q: How much does an angle grinder cost?
An angle grinder can range in price from just 30 to over 200, though it’s more common for these tools to cost about 80 to 100.
Q: How do you cut metal with an angle grinder?
Use a metal cutting disc on an angle grinder to cut through lead, iron, copper, and other metals without a problem. The rotating blade slices easily through metal, but it’s important to wear safety glasses and gloves because a significant amount of sparks are produced during the grinding process.
Q: How do you cut pavers with an angle grinder?
Angle grinder equipped with masonry discs can be used to cut through paving stones without much difficulty. Measure and mark where you want to cut the paver, then position it on a workbench. Turn the grinder on and start to slowly cut into the paving stone. Once you have started the cut it will be easier to accurately finish cutting through the paver.
Q: How are the discs on an angle grinder changed?
First, unplug the grinder or remove the battery. Then remove the nut that holds the disc in place, using the factory spanner included with the angle grinder. Replace the disc and tighten the nut bolt using the factory spanner.
Q: How can I remove the disc with vise grips?
Grinder discs are secured with a specialized nut that is usually tightened or removed with an included spanner. However, if you lose the spanner the nut can still be removed with a set of vise grips. Simply tighten the vice on the grinder blade, locking it in position, then use your hand or a screwdriver to turn and remove the locking nut.
Q: How do you properly recycle an old angle grinder?
Instead of tossing your old angle grinder in the trash, take it to a local electronics recycling location. Typically, the municipality or town will have a program for recycling electronic tools and other devices, though some home improvement stores, like Home Depot, also offer tool recycling programs.
