    Re: the best angle grinder

    I have 4 angle grinders ( Makita, Dewalt , Bosch and Maxsell ) . The best one among the lot is the Bosch Variable speed 4" Angle Grinder.

      Re: the best angle grinder

      on a woodworking side, i may have to agree with Jay..

      i only have a variable speed bosch i purchased in 2007.

      there is no other brand offering this feature and it really works for me all the time.

      i just screw in the commercial velcro lotus backing pad and attach an 80 grit to start with.

      for durability i cannot deny makita. it offers the professional line the price of which is almost double than the regular ones.

      it depends on the work you intend to do with them.

      if you will be using them for grinding steel forever then buy the most expensive makita.it will serve you well..but then again, running the motor for an hour is enough for them to bog down.

      and lastly, dont let someone else borrow your precious tools...buy a ryobi or ozito surplus for your friends..hehe..

      you can buy "makata" from the sidewalks of raon as well.

        I believe this is meant as one phrase. the makita kasi in the sidewalks are 99% fake and will not last long, but they are cheap...

          Re: the best angle grinder

          Thanks guys, so if the bosch angle grinder has variable speed, does that mean it can be used for bupping up to grinding metal? what model is that? do you have an idea how much it will cost and where to buy?

            oi sir beedigo dito kana rin..
            I was just thinkin a repeat study bout this time for angle grinder.but too much expensive to do it again... Last year-february- A friend and us made an endurance test study for jigsaw by simultaneously running 7 brands of jigsaw (makita,ryobi,bosch,ozito,skil,dewalt,and fake items from raon). It cost him a lot but he made a point..Continous running until it bogged down..results were obtained and it change my view regarding tools..although it was not necessarily to conclude what ever burnt last should the best best jigsaw..it was only durability test but most user emphasize handling advantage-aesthetic/vibration/etc..bottomline-you have to try it urself to fit your std and need-if not u may depend in branding issue or depend on others user`s advice..

                  Re: the best angle grinder

                  yup and do specify the model kung pwede. of course endurance doesn't necessitate performance, but it is a plus.

                      welcome Andrew to PHM, glad to have pros in this site. can you give us an idea of the Makita jigsaw model you use? I know that Bosch makes the best jigsaws worldwide and know that the newer model Makita (2009 models) seem to be catching up, have you tried the Bosch jigsaw model GST80 PBE or 80PB? if you haven't I'm sure I can ask a representative to visit your plant and give you a demo.
                      I really can't comment much on the angle grinder since I have little experience using them.

                        Re: the best angle grinder

                        Based on my experience,

                        800w Makita, all purpose, best for metal, tiles, and wood
                        2200w Ryobi, I use this to cut metal, kinda heavy but powerful
                        800w Bosch, all purpose, best of metal, and tile cutting
                        600w kawasaki, strong but light, I use this to clean metal
                        800w Mac master, strong, but its kinda heavy on the hand
                        400w china generic, I got 2 of this, I like it co'z its very light, I use it for sanding, minor metal buffing.. (cost only P600 sa Raon)

                        So far the best I recommend is Makita and Bosch..

                        I'm also eying on the sleek LG grinder. The one thats thin and long.. Hopefully it would reach those tight spaces..

                          Given a chance I would want to try a Metabo 4 or 4 1/2 angle grinder and see for myself why these are so expensive and if it's worth paying their price.

                            Re: the best angle grinder

                            I have accummalated a number of tools for my welding projects and can attest that angle grinders
                            are a must for these kind of metal project, I would use my grinders sparringly from 4" grinder up to the 9"grinder.

                            I think there is no need for one to be using the best angle grinder anybody can find unless it will be for heavy
                            industrial applications. Simply AVOID the fake ones being peddled around or the ones sold at the banketas
                            somewhere at raon. What if lets say you bought a famous known grider, may it be Makita, Bosch or Dewalt and
                            then uses it for your intended application and suddenly bogs down, what then and how would you feel not knowing
                            what you paid with your hard earned money is a lemon, well I guess this can also happen to not so branded
                            power tools.

                            My grinders are mostly BLACK & DECKER , just right for my DIY applications, and even bought a lotus brand
                            just to compare its motor quality with the B & Ds that I use and none has bogged down even ones. I would use them
                            heavily during metal projects, one for cutting, another two for grinding and another for wire brushing.

                            Lucky for me cause I was able to purchase a DEWALT 9" grinder for only 5K more than half less of the original
                            selling price of 12K. They were selling 2 units then and were giving it at a mark down price coz new batch
                            of stocks will be coming in.

                              I just bought a 710W KYK from binondo, It kinda powerful for the sleek design, and is backed up by a local warranty.. I like it cause it is easily gripped even if you only use one hand in grinding.. I also bought another 600w makita.. I really like light weighted grinder in fiberglass projects...
