Easy to make angle grinder with fixed miter gauge. Also has a stop block so
you can cut metal the same size.

Cool idea, have seen a few setups but have a ton of other cool stuff I want to build. LOL

Great idea and very useful when cutting off standard sizes of round stocks . . . have you considered how to securely holding the round stock in place while passing through the grinder blade? I use pre-made blocks (two halves) with standard size drilled holes (1/4”, 3/8”, 1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4”, etc) to hold down the round stocks . . . I’d be interested in your ideas . . .

Nice work, I like it.
I took a different approach here that might interest you as well.

This is a really good idea. The stand that come with my angle grinder is a piece of junk. This looks much easier to hold materials.

Charles, for myself I found the pliers would work better. They securely hold the piece and I never know what I will cut next.
