Abstract

An angle grinder that is also known as a disc grinder or a side grinder is a hand-held power tool used for polishing, cutting, and grinding works. Workers often had difficulties in maintaining the right position in using the angle grinder to cut metal, which often resulted in minor position shifts. This often affected the results of the process as the size of the cut metal is often different from the required measurement. Hence, this project aims to fabricate a stand that can move forward and backward with portable and ergonomic features to attach the angle grinder. With these features, we hope to reduce the production time for a work price by 30%. The material that we used to fabricate this stand was a mild steel hollow bar, mild steel plate, and hollow pipe. The methods that we applied in this fabrication works were arc welding, grinding, drilling, and joint. The significant result of using this angle grinder stand was the time consumption when cutting the workpiece and the accuracy compared to using hand. In conclusion, this angle grinder stand is easy to operate and ergonomic.
