Ideal for toenails, when you get the wrong side of 50!

Don't joke, my wife used to be able to count to 20, but now she can only add to 16 and a half.:p

Looks like Boba Fetts ship

Looking to cut the bases off some plant pots. (youtube.com/watch?v=mfXXamj8lV4).

Will this do this or is it overkill?

Good price although doing some perusing I noticed that a while back this was on a clearance for £25!

Will this be a 3 year warranty like all other Bosch blue? Gone for it either way as my previous Bosch just died.

Honestly thought I was the only one thinking this!

Great deal for Bosch pro series kit.

Good find, might go that a go, you'll need to buy the diamond blade that was on offer at B&Q a couple of weeks back for £5.67 diy.com/dep…prd

What the video that plays after so funny when it falls apart.

Yes I know it's probably a daft question but I have no idea where to start. Can this cut paving slabs?

...Need a saw apparently

You don't need a saw, a 9" grinder with a diamond disc will be fine for a one off job.

Well, it's sort of overkill (especially if you never use it again for anything else), yet it's still one of the cheapest hardcore tools out there that can actually do the job!
And provided you don't get frightened off (they can be vicious) or forget that you own this tool, you can do a heck of a lot of other useful stuff with it (example: I have an aluminium ladder that got deformed around the base, so I'm going to be repurposing it, and I'll be cutting off the damaged part with a grinder (using a cutting disc). I also have a big, heavy cast-iron Creuset-type pot that has a crack in the side, so I'm cutting around the base, making it into a sort of griddle-plate (for roasting peppers, aubergines, courgettes and toast). There's more ways to skin a cat though, and both of those jobs could be done, for example, with a jigsaw, using the appropriate blade, but the grinder will be faster, and cheaper (but somewhat noisier and scarier).
You can also buy a heavy-duty steel brush and do some real hardcore paint-stripping/de-scaling/de-rusting of any big bits of iron (gates and what-have-you) - beats a drill hands down for power and speed - just do NOT use it on any decent bike frames, the good ones are almost paper-thin, so a grinder would bend them to sh**.

Trusting you on this one! Great! Thank you!!

Just to let you all know, the main thing you should be looking for in a 115 mm angle grinder (besides a decent make) is the slimness of the body, because they tend to be quite fat, and if you can't grab them properly, it's not only tiring, so you can't keep working for any extended periods of time, but it's obviously also potentially much more dangerous.

I have the Bosch pro GWS 7 (Screwfix has it for 65, but I paid just 48 from Toolstop) and it is awesome precisely because its body has such an incredibly small circumference - the slimmest body in its class (possibly the slimmest ever?).

Yep, like he said, you need the bigger grinders, not this one, unless your paving stones are only 1 to 1.5 inches thick.

You can do a few, cut a slice one side, score the other and snap over a bit of wood. Obviously not as good as a single slice but when needs must.

Hi guys, could anyone confirm if it is a M10 or M14 spindle? The attachment I would like to use requires M14. The website states M10 but am I right in thinking this is unusual?

indeed. I've been using power tools for 14 years and most times I remember safely stuff.

I went for a hearing test few years back and guy said to me "do you use power tools? " I said yes. He said " I can tell".
