FREE SHIPPING - Klutch Angle Grinder Holder
Not bad for the price
The main limitation with regards to cutting are the guides for clamping down the tubing. They are only about 3/4" tall, so it makes it tough to hold round tubing larger than about 1.25" OD, even if the cutting wheel is capable of a deeper cut. But other than this, it is great and holds the grinder perfectly and has plenty of adjustment so you can get nice and square cuts.

Very Useable and worth the money.
I bought this mainly to cut small (1/2") 304 stainless steel round stock. I didn't have room for a larger cutoff saw and thought I could get double duty out of my Harbor Freight (HF) grinder. Instead I bought a second 41/2" HF grinder since adjustment to true the abrasive blade take a little time. As people have said the cast iron base is a plus especially when clamping the aluminum arm and guides. These clamp very securely to the base and no movement is experienced. The attachment/clamping mechanism works fairly well and adapts to most grinders with 180 degree (opposing) threaded holes intended for left and right handle supports of your particular grinder. Truing the blade uses two other grinder supports pivoting the grinder on these two threaded hole supports. You need to go slow but the abrasive saw works very well. I'm happy with this purchase!

I can not believe the quality of this product for the cost of it. I am a toolmaker and could not build this for anywhere near what Northern charged for it. This is so well designed that there is a multitude of adjustments that will allow just about any grinder configuration to be used. Assembly time was quick. This works great, it is our go to cut off device for small rod, square stock , threaded rod is a breeze and cuttings bolts. This is a must for any fab or machine shop or home shop.

Works well with angle grinders but not Dualsaws
This is a really solid tool that for an angle grinder allows you to have a very cost effective chop saw that doesn't take up too much room. Arrived sooner than expected and is a bargain.
The base is heavy cast iron, high quality, and has threaded holes for a quality fit. The paint is a nice powder coat durable finish. I was really surprised by the quality and weight of the unit.
** Does not work with Dual saw Destroyer type saws. The geometry and size of the destroyer just does not work with this unit...(I tried and tried...)
Otherwise a great tool, very affordable and allows precise solid cuts as advertised.

Klutch Angle Grinder Holder
The Klutch Angle Grinder Holder works very well and is easy to use. You just need to make sure the cutting disk is lined up straight with what you're cutting, otherwise you will cut too short or long.

the tool holder was shiped in a timely fashon I found the tool easy to asemble although the grinder switch was on the top which made the grinder hard to turn on & off but the holder worked fine

Great for straight cuts
Great and safe tool. Assembly is pretty simple.
However using it for angle cuts is tricky since the disk is not going all the way down and the rod has to be rotated but then the angle has to would have to be adjusted to opposite angle which is not possible. Long in short - great for straight cuts.

Klutch Angle Grinder Holder
I would certainly call this a cool tool. At the time I purchased it i need to make some fairly straight cuts in metal. I didn't have the space for a full size saw nor the budget. My past experience with standard abrasive blade chop saws is they are only so accurate so I figured with it on sale I couldn't go wrong. It did quite well. I would have given this tool 5 stars but one aspect left me wanting more. Due to the design of the base there is not sufficient room to square the saw to the base using a standard triangle square. The other downfall is that the bushings to change bolt sizes are plastic and do offer some give. I would have easily paid a little more more if they had been made of metal. I could have used a speed square or other device, but I didn't have those available. I've used my DeWalt grinder and the economy grinder from another vendor. both work excellent. Once the setup is done it is easy to use, easy to store. If you only cut metal once in a great while it is a great way to save a lot of money over a larger chop saw. However for my need a larger chop saw is still on my soon to purchase list.

OK for limited use
If you need to occasionally cut smaller stock and don't want to invest in a cutoff saw, and already have a grinder, this works pretty well. It takes a few minutes to get it set up but will cut straight and square. If you need to cut a miter the clamp doesn't work too well and supplementary clamping may be needed. I recommend using a 5 1/2 inch cutting blade, and don't try to force the cut too fast.
