Post by: DavidLaver on 17 May, 2020, 01:10:54 PM

Stumbled on these today.

Any good?

Yesterday I spent an hour or two trying to make a thin spanner to hold the back of the disc mount whilst turning with the 2 pegged tool on the topside and still have 1/2hr+ filing to do I am sorely tempted. Anybody used it?

Hello Brian

I'm assuming your angle grinder doesn't have a spindle lock button on the top?
Anyway, us tradesmen use these regularly with no issues. A standard two pin angle grinder spanner will also fit in it to loosen it off if it becomes too tight after use to undo with your fingers.
The listing David links to seems suspiciously cheap as these things are around 12 inc. VAT from trade suppliers so please beware of counterfeit copies. Stay safe.
