"Site" 9" angle grinder, was £71 in the catalogue now less than £30.

"Site" is designed and made by Makita, it's their "budget" brand.

Decent price and decent quality (not De Walt but good enough for home/occasional use).

Looks very good for the price.

Anybody seen a decent jigsaw on a good deal? (doesn't have to be branded but want it too last)
#2
Just out of curiousity... if you had one of those convertors so you can plug somethig into the cigarette lighter, would this be powerful enough to remove a wheelclamp?

Just out of curiousity of course... ;)

(On a serious note, if this was plugged into the mains, would this be powerful enough to chop a chunk off a brick wall?)

Sorry, I've just asked my brother (he works at a screwfix branch) and the "Site" brand isn't exclusive to Screwfix.
They are definitely made by Makita though, I've edited my post to reflect this..

Just been and got one.Really good grinder bargain.

May well be a daft question, but could/should 4.5" disks be fitted to this for more intricate tasks? Are the fitted in the same way (I've never had a grinder before, although have used one but didn't have to fit the wheel) My immediate problem is to grind the heads off some seized bolts which are not terribly accessible, so I need a 4.5" grinding wheel for this realistically (and I need it tomorrow), but I'd prefer to buy a quality tool like this rather than a ~£20sh 4.5" grinder (thinking of the Silverline from Toolstation if needs be). I'd then have the 9" capacity and power if needs be in future.

Hot deal in any case, cheers.

Jamp,
Better to get decent 4.5" grinder, with a 4.5" disc suited to the task, ie cutting disc, that way the disc will be at the correct speed for effective cutting. Cutting discs are also designed for end of disc force, where grinding discs are designed for more of a side force and hence are significantly thicker. It is extremely important to use the right disc, on the right tool for the job. An incorrectly used or fitted grinding disc can cause serious injury. 9" grinders ar not for the faint hearted as the deliver some serious power, and can cause serious injury.

De Walt are crap these days anyways.
#10
Great. I need something to trim my nails.
#11
£5 for delivery, making it £34.99.

Argos do one at much higher power as this (2350 vs 2000 watts) for £30.99 in their clearance!!

This will very likely be able to use the smaller disks - most A/G's have them same spindle diameter, but in reality it will be almost be like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. These Grinders are big and heavy and not ideal for smaller more accurate tasks.
#13
I agree with the earlier remarks; better to use a small angle grinder for lighter or more intricate tasks. No reason, however, not to use small discs on a larger grinder if ncessary - but the guard or handle might well get in the way and prevent the small disc from touching the workpiece. When large discs are well worn, they can often be used further on a smaller grinder too.

The main problems with the larger tool is the weight and 'kick', especially on starting - they can be a danger to user or workpiece if not held properly. That is why the trigger cannot be locked 'on'. And do use an adequate (10A +) extension cable if necessary - the starting current is high and will easly blow a 5A fuse even though the grinder will draw less than that in normal use.

A cheap angle grinder will usually do the job well enough. But even the best models can suffer from worn-out bearings and broken trigger switches.

It's really not worth using an angle grinder for anything other than tasks they are designed for, they are extremely dangerous tools if used incorrectly and you run a real risk of the disk shattering if you use one not designed for the size of AG you are using - http://www.head-face-med.com/content/4/1/1 (viewer discretion advised)

Thanks Strawdog. A real eye opener, you just imagine that it will never happen to me, but it did to these guys. Ouch!!!!!!
Anyone buying a grinder should look at the site before even thinking about altering the intended design.

THis would match the grinder.. http://www.screwfix.com/prods/35257/Power-Tools/Jigsaws/Site-SMA400-1-720W-Jigsaw-110V#

Would these cut garden slabs, with stone cutting discs attached, or would you need a stihl saw?

Yes they will cut stone garden slabs with the appropriate type of cutting disc. Diamond discs are best but cost a bit initially, but they outlast dozens of normal discs therefore work out a lot cheaper and more convenient in the long run.

The one thing everyone has missed is that the effectiveness of a grinding tool is based very much on the speed of the cutting tool - at the point of cutting, ie a 4 1/2" grinder spindle speed is higher than a 9" grinder spindle speed to take account of the diameter of the cutting disc, and achieve the same m/s cutting speed at the point where the work is being done.

Very nasty! - think I'll invest in one of those full face masks (any recommendations?)

Performance wise I would suggest using a diamond wheel if cutting stone - these cut through concrete like cheese but produce a hell of a lot of dust - Does anyone know if a diamond wheel should be lubricated with water - the ones the guys on the roads use seem to have water feeds.
