Re: OT--- Dewalt D28402 Grinder for $59.00 at Low
One beauty of the cheap HF ones - you can have several for the same investment as one "good one." And when they do wear out, it's not a big loss.
Very true - the 4.5" is much much better than the 4".
I hate having to keep changing the wheel, from aggressive cutters, to flap sanders, to wire wheels.
I keep several HF 4.5's loaded with different cutting media, then just grab the one I want.
Usually I keep a solid cutter wheel, a 120 flap disc, another with a new 30 flap, another with 30 flap disc that's pretty well worn (not quite as aggressive as a new one,) and a wire wheel.
I find the flap discs are the most useful. A good source of them is HF.
I also have "big Bertha" a 7" HF grinder - powerful, aggressive - and downright scarey! One slip and it would take your leg off without even slowing down. It's so heavy and powerful it's not easy to keep it under good control.
And - a good quality Dremmel grinder always seems to come in handy.
