Wolfcraft 5019000 Angle Grinder Stand : Does what it’s supposed to do

Well made only one minor let down is that it has not got any vee groves for holding pipe. Maybe this can be a future addition.

Once set up this is a very handy piece of equipment, can be bolted down and gives a more precise cut.

Fantastic bit of kit now i can grind things without slipping and damaging the item i am working on.

Wolfcraft 5019000 Angle Grinder Stand

  • For angle grinders Ø 115 and 125 mm
  • Metal Cutting
  • Solid construction with cast aluminum plate
  • Integrated clamping device
  • Robust construction with a metal bar

Spanners and allen keys required. Item appears well designed and holds my wickes angle grinder without a problem. Cast base makes the product very stable. Easy to set up providing you have allen keys to hand as some parts come assembled for easy packaging and they must be dis-assembled to follow the exploded diagram instructions which are themselves ok.

Needs to be fine tuned for it to be accurate at cutting. Instructions a bit hit and miss,needs to be fine tuned for it to be accurate at cutting. Would probably limit the stock thickness to 12mm owing to size limit of the disc.

Only the out edge of the cutting disc is useful because the machine bottoms out before the useful area. I cut a lot of bar to use in my lathe. I thought that this would give me a squarer cut, it does but. . Only the out edge of the cutting disc is useful because the machine bottoms out before the useful area is used. Given that; the disc soon becomes too small to be of any use. I mad two cuts of one inch mild steel, (round). The second cut didn’t make it through. When cutting some five eighth inch angle i got through two discs for six cuts. It works but if you want to do a lot of cuts think before you buy.

Good product, bit fiddlely to set up accurately but patience gets you there.

Wolfcraft angle grinder stand. Assembly is awkward supplied as a flat pack.

A useful & affordable piece of kit. A well-made piece of equipment that accepts my bosch 115mm angle grinder without problems. It comes with adaptors for grinders with smaller threads on the side handle. Its a worthwhile and affordable addition to the workshop that extends the usefulness of a small angle grinder.

Only three stars because – it’s a great idea, but is a bit tricky to assemble. Only three stars because – it’s a great idea, but is a bit tricky to assemble with poor instructions, it probably fits quite a variety of small angle grinders, and when used for cutting mild steel bar and some steel handrails it did the job really well and accurately, but. There are a couple of potentially serious issues, probably depending on the model/make of grinder. What i didn’t notice at first was the lower stabilising bolt actually pushed against the spindle lock button of one of my grinders, i soon noticed when i started it up though.Luckily not too much damage done – but watch out for this. The other problem, with both my grinders, is that it makes the on/off switch extremely difficult to reach, so you need a separate power switch immediately close by for safety purposes. Otherwise this device would have been well worth five stars.

Good value but not especially accurate. This stand is pretty good value for the price, but quite understandably not as good as a proper metal chop saw. It seems there are only a few similar products to this on the market, all at a similar prices and with few subtle differences, so i was unsure which one to get. Having bought this one, here are my comments: this one does have a cast iron base, which is good and solid, doesn’t have a spark guard (bracket at the front) but then sparks fly backwards anyway. The assembly & mounting of the angle grinder took a little time to get right, but seems pretty solid. Instructions were pretty good, only a couple of moments of uncertainty. My makita angle grinder fitted fine – you get three sizes of attachment screw/bush which fix to the two mounting points for the free-hand handle grip (not used when angle grinder is fitted in this stand). The supplied spark guard seemed redundant to the one fitted to the grinder itself, so i left it off. The tricky part is getting the grinding disc vertical – you have two screws to adjust the angle of the grinder body – it took quite a few test cuts in some steel bar to get close to straight. The other issue to mention is that the pivot point isn’t especially solid – plastic ‘bearings’ on a short 10mm bar mean the arm that holds the grinder can pivot side-to-side by a good 5-10mm at the top (ie the axis in which you would like no movement).

This is ideal for the normal diyer. Care is required in lining it up for accurate cutting to size.

This item gives a genuine lower every single time either straight or angled it is quite simple to set collectively and is risk-free to use would reccomend this instrument.

Great product or service sent on time and was as marketed. Excellent productdelivered on time and was as advertised.

Slicing with an angle grinder can go away the metallic seeking a little bit butchered and worse for wear. Does particularly what you would want it to do. Guides an angle grinder straight and cuts with a square edge. Bought this as a fathers working day existing, as my father was was renovating his conservatory and needed to minimize some aluminium beams. Chopping with an angle grinder can go away the steel on the lookout a bit butchered and worse for have on. When an angle grinder is equipped into this machine it cuts straight and real.

As a essential slice off stand i am incredibly joyful with this. Components are substantial, a lot more than i anticipated for a little something in this price vary, together with a excellent cast steel base and excellent plated fittings. I’ve made use of it with two various angle grinders (a bosch and a black and decker) and the attachment setup worked effectively for both. I have only utilised this a handful of periods, and so can not remark on its sturdiness, but for an affordable accent for cutoff’s i would advise.

Excellent stand, nicely created but just a touch impractical. The stand is durable and seems tough. It will come in a number of parts that want assembly, which should really only just take five-ten minutes but i located the guidance extremely inadequate and the schematic diagrams ended up so terribly printed as to render them completely worthless. In the conclusion, i ignored the directions and assembled it by way of trial and mistake. At the time assembled, the unit holds the grinder incredibly nicely and the pull down motion is clean and (if aligned correctly – which is an art in by itself) precise. But this is in which my reservations kick in. For ninety diploma cuts, this device is alright, for 45 degree cuts, unless of course you are reducing one thing definitely small (i was unable to slash 20mm angle at forty five levels for illustration) the tiny slicing disks simply aren’t major sufficient to do it. This isn’t an challenge with the stand as these types of, but does then beg the question, why have a clamp that’ll angle alter if the only point it’s going to reduce is miniscule. I was cutting moderate metal angle and box segment – for other makes use of it may be fantastic. But in my feeling, if you happen to be a hobbyist/diyer carrying out the identical you’re better off hand slicing with a hacksaw or if accuracy just isn’t so significant then grinding by eye is high-quality and a damn sight fewer fideldy.

Wolfcraft angle grinder stand. Quite happy with this angle grinder stand. It is very durable and great value for income. Environment up proved to be a little bit fiddly but comprehensible since it has to mate up with diverse helps make of angle grinder, but when set up it is an ideal attachment for my jcb angle grinder. Just one particular slight criticism: for pretty small added value the inclusion of an allen key for modifying the angle of the clamps when using the stand would have been a bonus but apart from this i would have no hesitation in recommending this merchandise for any do it yourself enthusiast. Great value, excellent solution-thank you amazon.

    I am very pleased with my purchase and with its price. . I bought this unit to use a grinding disk to sharpen twist drills. I have a drill sharpener which requires the use of the side of a grinding wheel which would eventually cut a groove into the wheel which i think could be dangerous. This tool seemed to be a good compromise. The unit is good and surprising value, a solid cast aluminium base the mechanism that holds the grinder is robust and my dewalt grinder was secured by two substantial bolts that screwed into the threaded receptors for the angle grinder handles. There are plastic parts which people seem unhappy with, one is the handle to lower the grinder, and it is fine and after all the handle of my grinder is plastic. The other part is the spark guard, i cannot use it for my main application using the dewalt guard instead, but i do not see any problem. The other criticism is the instructions, i watched an unboxing and assembly youtube video first which of course helps, but i did not find the instructions a problem or confusing. Setting the blade square to the base and on-board vice took a moment’s thought as to where to measure from, but it’s not rocket science. There is a little play in the pivot of the main body part, but it does not affect my use and i suspect it could be overcome by using a couple of shims.

    1. Great product, just make time to set it up properly. This takes a bit of time to set up in the first instance but once you have it straight and plumb it worked great. I used a makita grinder so i needed the medium sized bolts. It saved me several hundred pounds on buying a cut off saw. I must recommend buying a small 90 degree square to get it set up.

    I have one of these for cutting very hard metals accurately, i cut high speed steel bits for a boring bar i have for the lathe, they are easily made to length after the initial sharpening process, can’t cut it with a normal saw.

    Works well but needs threadlock on the threads to stop everything shaking loose.
