So, first things first. You need some material to make your new platform out of. This is a piece of 1/4″ stainless steel. The platform by no means need to be made of stainless steel. If you are unsure of where to pickup such material and don’t want to pay McMaster, check around with your local machine shop for scraps. I’ve laid out my cut lines (3″ X 5″) with a sharpie and will be using an angle grinder with a cut off wheel to cut out my piece. I find that I get a much better cut if I take multiple passes instead of hogging all the material away at once.
I hope this quick tutorial was helpful and that you no longer fuss when you need to change around the grinder for sharpening a different tool.
As always, let me know if you have any questions or found this tutorial helpful. Also, if you modified your grinder, let me know!
