RAS grinder guard from AGC 18-115 Angle Grinder?
« on: August 02, 2022, 06:55 PM »
I have a RAS 115 which i wouldn't part with for anything. I've just been monkeying around trying to get it to work for what i needed, namely to be able to use diamond abrasive discs because a regular grinder is way too fast. Just today, after opening it for maybe 7 years, I FINALLY discovered that the dust shroud can be removed, exposing a typical cylindrical area to mount a guard like a standard angle grinder. My question is this:
Do the parts for the new cordless Festool AGC 18-115 Angle Grinder fit the RAS? Like, does the grinder shield have the same diameter hole in the middle? Does the inner flange have a 14mm hole in it? The corresponding parts for the RAS were never sold in the US market, for whatever reason, and aren't available anymore anyway.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer.

Unfortunately no.  The angle grinder guard has a series of irregular indents that mate with a corresponding pattern on the body of the machine, which do not line up with the profile on the RAS.
