    Re: the best angle grinder

    Talking about ANGLE GRINDER safety use, I have here some safety tips for new owners or other former owners/users that have taken the tool for granted ( I mean its safety use ). I have posted these links with other safety tips on another thread, " Let's Talk about Angle Grinders " post or reply # 50.

    Hope these links will help/remind us of the proper use of this tool, the blades or grinding discs we install or use may not be sharp but what makes it very dangerous is its spinning power that reaches up to 12000 RPM.


    CHEERS and always STAY SAFE with power tools !!!!!

      Re: the best angle grinder

      Angle grinders like most tools need some time to learn how to use well. If you are a newbie then I suggest you take it slowly in the beginning. Use the guard always and study how the different attachments ( grinding, cutting & flap discs , wire wheels, cup brushes ) behave. If the cord is tangled then stop and take time to untangle it. Position the guard accordingly too. The side handle will be a good way to control the grinder.

      That said and after several metal wips I now like to ram the grinding disc into the metal as hard as the grinder can take it to finish the job quickly ... LOL

      However for more safety purposes I find the paddle switch grinders to be a notch above. As soon as the paddle is released the grinder immediately begins to stop. This is good specially for out of position grinding like in overhead. There will be times when the WIP will be very heavy to move already and the operator has to position himself according to the WIP. Here the dangers start to multiply.

        Ok, I needed one now so I settled with gws7-100 from panda. No need for more power bec its just for fiberglass shaping cutting and trimming... This little dude is noisy as ****! I still need to get discs for my application. Panda doesn't have the grits I need.

              nice grinder, when will they be available locally? bosch also has the skinny 4" angle grinder, that one seems nice since its easier to handle specially if your wearing gloves, i have the bosch variable speed grinder too and 2 makita's with the switch on the side, a 9" bosch grinder and a ryobi professional grinder the small one with the metal housing, an old black and decker and several air angle grinders, among all of them, the ryobi runs the smoothest, the makita's are a bit noisy but the air angle grinders are the most durable....most pneumatic tools are, they just need cleaning and a few drops of oil once a day....

                thet are already out for a while now. Just check the 5" grinders with the "Kickback stop" sticker on the grinder. the 4" grinders still do not have that feature...

                  Nice grinders mentioned here. I've used B&D and Bosch, pero for me, it's my trusty, simple Makita 9553B. Got it for less than 4k 5 yrs ago. It has tiled houses that i've built and kanina lang po it's still helping us make a metal gate..=)

                      Well I've seen some of their lines of power tools and they are fairly cheap. Sa sulit may mga nag bebenta and there is a sticker in one of the case that says its Japan made. I just don't know why it is cheap, maybe because its for DIY applications only or just because its still a new brand, well just not so sure yet.

                      here is the seller ; Jombie/jomark, he got 2 shops or stores somewhere sa Evangelista st. and Raon, Quiapo,
                      a legit industrial shop owner that sells generators, air compressors, power tools, welding machines etc, etc.

                        Presently I have a Makita 9500nb but I want a 2nd one, that Bosch 4" with variable speed(I just don't know the model). It will surely serve me well in buffing and polishing aluminum.
