Unable to loosen flange to remove disc on angle grinder

I have been using my grinder to cut masonry. It is brand new. However now I can't seem to loosen the outer flange to take the disc off and put in another. I tried using a pipe on the spanner for more leverage but ended up snapping one of the pins off of the spanner. I have another spanner and hope someone has a solution.

What sort of disc do you have on there at the mo? If its just an abrasive disc the easiest way to remove it is to use a hacksaw to cut the disc sideways so that you are actually sawing it out between the lock nut and rear flange. This will release the pressure on the nut. If it is a diamond blade and you have already snapped a pin spanner then I would suggest securing the blade in a vice and using a set of stiltsons/pipe wrench. While in the vice you could also try using a punch in the pin holes to shock it round a bit, then the pin spanner (and leverage if needed).

I had the same problem with 9" Hitachi, worn holes and worn cutting disc.
With a 5" I cut two parallel faces on opposite sides of the nut, just a few mm in and clamped the nut in a vice on these faces, pressed the button and swung the grinder, easy! We use the grinder again.

I agree with the previous solution but would try a couple of drops or Kroil penetrant, K&N knok-r-loose, maybe some heat then try the wrench and the hacksaw last.

Misplaced my angle grinder's inner disc flange


If you use a nut, the arbor nut will not hold your grinding/cutting wheel properly and you'll use up threade the arbor nut needs to tighten. What you need is the clamping flange, Bosch part number 3603340501. If you have a tool repair center near you they may have one or can order you one. If not, you can get one on sites like www.ereplacementparts.com.

  • 1 Check the grinder before you begin. The newer discs on rotary grinders have patented buttons that allow you to remove the disc without any tools. You may have one like that. In models like this, there's usually a spot to depress and then remove the disc.

  • 2 Turn off the grinder before you attempt to remove and change the disc on your rotary grinder. If it's battery powered, put the grinder in lock position so you can't accidentally turn it on. If it's electric, unplug the grinder from the wall.
  • 3 Look for a nut in the center of the disc. This is a give away that you need to use your special wrench. Sometimes the grinder comes with a tool necessary to loosen and remove the nut. Other times you need to use a wrench.
  • 4 Lock the wheel into place before you begin. You can find a button or switch at the side or back that allows you to do that. When you lock the wheel in place, the disc remains still as you loosen the nut in the center.
  • 5 Remove the nut in the center with either the tool provided with the grinder or a shop tool and lift the disc off your rotary grinder.
  • 6Lift the disc off the rotary grinder. If you have different discs, remember to check for the best fit. Put the nut back on a different way for different discs. Check for a rim and indentation on one side of the nut and a flat side on the other. A visual inspection of the disc for the rotary grinder gives you information about the side to use.

    I own a metabo 9-125 quick but can't don't know how to place the blade


    On the silver part on top of the grinder is a button , press this button and hold it down. now turn the blade until it stops moving, this locks the blade, keep holding the button down and turn grinder over ,and turn the nut counter clockwise, and remove it , take old blade off ,put on new one .it should go over the shaft and at the bottom on a "fit" Make sure it is on the "fit". replace the nut and tighten. If you dont get the nut tight enough it will loosen while in use and the disc you are cutting/grinding with will wobble and may even come off causing possible injury .

    Try turning it the opposite way. Instead of loosening it, you may be tightening it. Reverse threads on these machines are necessary to keep the flange from flying off by itself. Joe

    Yes you need an angle grinder spanner/wrench. It is like a tool with two pins that fit in the holes of the grinder disc securing nut. You can see a picture of one here: http://images.toolspot.co.uk/Angle%20Grinder%20Accessories/Angle%20Grinder%20Spanner%20For%20412in.jpg

    They do come in different sizes, but you can also buy adjustable ones. Your best bet is to take the grinder to the local hardware store, big box outlet or anywhere power tools are sold and they should have a grinder spanner to suit your grinder.
