Is this a mini angle grinder?



Yes... its a mini grinder. Only has a 5 inch blade.
Very versatile tool. I have used mine to cut thru slabs, wire fences, pipes and all sorts of other things. One of the best tools I have.
Hmm Aldi might get a visit for a couple of things.
Not recommended. I had one from last year (same model from the looks of it) and it turned into a firework show while i was using it. Thankfully all it did was blow and burn out the motor and i didn't get any shocks despite the blue haze of sparks. Hadn't used it often and was just cutting dusty mortar from really old brickwork (diy use, not trade).



Thought this was posted a couple of days ago?

I thought the default size for a small angle grinder was 115mm, and 230mm for the large one?
Nice

115mm is 4½ inch, 125mm is 5 inch. Both sizes are commonly available.

My guess is that the disc bore and diameter are slightly different to everything else on the planet. So that once the cheap discs they're also selling are broken and/or dull you won't be able to get a replacement for less than the cost of entirely new grinder with discs of a standard size....
1150 Watts?! My 115mm Bosch Grinder is only 550 W and that cuts anything.... either that figure is a total lie or these are so inefficient 500 Watts is being wasted as heat/noise/vibration.

Are the veg that tough
1150W seems a very high motor figure. Most of these smaller angle grinders are around 500-750 watts. Seems a pretty good deal if the wattage figure is geniune as grinders at getting on half the wattage are similar money. Looking at it, its longer than most of the budget grinders to allow for a more powerful motor. Voted hot.

Although 115mm is a more common size for a small grinder, 125mm is also readily available and the disc bore is usually standard at 22.2mm for both these and larger (230mm) grinders. The Aldi discs are good quality and keenly priced but there should be no problem in buying replacement discs elsewhere - Toolstation does them for all sizes. (And don't forget that a worn disc from a larger grinder (e.g. 230mm) can normally be re-used in a smaller one (125 or 115mm!)

I would really do your research on this, if it's a diamond blade it can't, carbon blades ..maybe but i wouldn't recommend it. anyway 115/125mm carbon blades are pretty cheap anyway.

You are of course quite right that a metal-backed disc cannot be used on a smaller grinder. I was referring to the carborundum types. It is common and sensible practice to reuse them on a smaller grinder when the diameter is reduced on a larger one to the point that they no longer meet the workpiece. Why throw them away when they have life left in them?

Do you chuck out your drill bits when the cutting edge wears? Perhaps you do - but sharpening (even by eye) is not difficult and gives a new lease of life. I sharpen pencils too when the lead breaks!

No...It takes 125mm or 5inch discs which is a common size. They also have on offer starting today 26/01/12 a pac of 4 assorted diamond discs for 3.99 which is a real bargain. The Angle Grinder is 17.99.

Wrong, bought one today and my 115mm disks from my pinched grinder to my surprise fit.
