Angle Grinder Adaptors and Drill Bits
Adapters allow you to mount your bit onto an angle grinder and use it as a modified high-speed drill. Angle grinders generally run at 10,000 rpm and will make drilling your logs much faster and easier. Angle grinders are moderately priced and easily available. Adaptors fit a 5/8″ diameter spindle — generally 41/2″ long and 11 threads per inch. They have been designed to fit most makes and models of angle grinders currently available in North America.
The adapters will fit onto your grinder ‘spindle’ (tighten with appropriate size ‘allen key’) and will take a drill bit on the other end. both a 12.5 mm and a 13.5 mm bit can be used with the adapter.
FYI: 12mm = .4724 inches and 13.5 mm = .5118 inches
A drill bit with a depth stop (such as shown in the picture) is recommended. It is made specifically for log mushroom cultivation. It augers out the sawdust from the hole and throws it out as it is drilling, leaving a clean hole. A normal wood drill bit can work but is a secondary choice. Bits without a depth stop can be fitted with a collar to provide the depth stop, however collars can be difficult to attach and tighten onto the bit.
