Here's my issue. I'm about to paint my Brutus 10 and can't get into the top edges of the stand. It's 2" square steel and its a 2" gap. I want to clean the spatter off and smooth out the inner edge. Any tips or tools that would help would be awesome.

Do you have any pictures to show more specifically what you are talking about?

An angle grinder with a larger diameter grinding wheel (7 inches) might be able to get into the gap a little better. The problem is that you can't just put a 7 inch wheel on a standard angle grinder. You'd need to find one that could accommodate a larger diameter

Yeah picture would help a lot to explain your issue. My thoughts are rotate the guard (don't take it off though) so that the exposed edge is inline with the grip (if that makes sense )

Its a 4 1/2" grinder. Even without the guard it cant get in there.

I think I understand your issue now... maybe a drill with a flap disc?

HAHA I was going to suggest a file. The flap disc work great....I still would like to see pictures and then maybe suggest something different from that.

This type of flapper wheel on an angle grinder works quick and wont dig too deep by accident.
