Grinders


What is everyone using these days. I am looking into one of the Makita grinders -9565cv with SJS Technology. Any thoughts CT?

Any recommendations as to what you guys use? I need it for masonry(CStone) and tile work..

Re: Grinders


That new Makita looks good. I have the older single speed Bosch 1348AE 5-inch grinder. It's held up pretty well for what I use it for, which is mostly metal grinding or rust and welding scale removal with wire cup brushes. The only problem I’ve had with it so far is replacing a damaged power cord, which was my fault.

That looks nice but I would be concerned using it for anything outside of bench work. Might make it hard use having limited ways to hold it
