Default Angle grinder storage

Do any of you guys hang or have some special way to store all of your angle grinders?

Default Re: Angle grinder storage

i keep mine in a hanging wall cab, along with seldom used air tools that dont fit into tool boxes.
the cab is large enough to keep welding gloves, couple pair of overalls, welding beanies, and powertool cases that i dont use.

I just kept the boxes they came in. I toss them back in their boxes on the shelf under my workbench. That way, you have the extra brushes, wrenches for changing wheels, and instructions with the grinder always.

I have been meaning to make something similar to this for a while now, I think it's one of the better ways to store them if you have the wall space. Or if you have a welding table or cart you can make something similar under the table to store them.

I would use up a whole toolbox if I started putting power tool in them. Hand tools only for right now.

Ammo boxes for them (and palm sanders, etc.) which store nicely on the power tools shelf. I keep a pair or two of safety glasses on top of the boxes, and ear muffs.

I bought some trays and keep all the accessories in the tray with the grinder. I have three different trays as one is a dedicated disc sander, another is set up mostly for cutting and the third is a grinder. Saves changing the discs frequently. Kinda like Jack's selection above.

Trays are similar:
