Edited by: "worthinger" 8th Jun

Was just about to post this. My grinder is packing up and B&Q don't sell the replacement brushes (plus its discontinued now). Saw these for £25 quid a few days ago but this morning down to £15 so grabbed two. One for cutting and one for grinding!

Bargain...

Can this be used to trim the bottom of a wooden door?

Err - not recommended! oO

You probably need a 'vibrating multi-tool' thingy, or take the door off and use a plane.

These are great! I cut a car up with one of these and i still use it for other little jobs... im off to get another 2!

Nice! I was looking for a birthday gift for my dad

​You could use this without the guards.

Got one of these recently to do a couple of jobs around the house. It worked well although the guards tend to work themselves loose.

can this be used to cut a hardened steel padlock ?

its an amtech padlock if that helps

​Cutting discs supplied would be fine. If any dics are supplied, maybe return the product, they wouldn't do the job and are likely to get sore before any real cutting takes place

Are u saying the supplied dics are not hard enough for the grinding?

​While some dics are harder than others, on the hole they may not be suitable. Risk of injury may occur.

They are having a joke here about the misspelling of discs as dics there will be nothing wrong with the supplied grinding disc. I had to make an account to put this poor guy out of his misery.

Yes but issue could be stopping the padlock from moving violently whilst you are hacking through it. Might need to use some strong string or wire to anchor the lock to something solid.

If it's a brass bodied padlock, cut that straight down the middle... rather than the shackle, unless the shackle is more than 10mm the supplied disk will cut it, no need to buy another disk.

Thanks for the link. What's the picker called as it doesn't come in the standard picking tools set.

Thanks again

A grinder can kick up, even if you're an expert...

shim it, and save the cost of a grinder.... YouTube

I got one when they were on 2 for £30. Good little Grinder, I used it for chasing out walls for a re-wire.

Thanks. Seems there's a few sizes 7mm to 10mm.and has to be correct. Costs are around the same or little less. Plus i never tried these. Did pick my house door as a trial 5 years ago and was very easy

You could ask the guy in the you tube vid for the correct size?

dazza99

Yes



​yes

To cut metal use the thin cutting discs , usually labelled for stainless ~£1.
The old-style thicker discs are rubbish in comparison.

Handy for the collection of tools, never know when it will be needed. Heat added

I don't think I'm a pro with picking and no time lol. Do you have link for the grinder?

No, with these short handled ones the disc gets a little too close to your knuckles without a guard.

Anyone that knows what they are doing would leave the guard on.

It not only stops your hand coming into contact with a spinning blade but directs hot sparks away from your hand and in the case of breakage may direct blade fragments away from your face.

I use grinders daily, and it's easy to have a momentary loss in concentration or kick back. If your using a 1mm Knox disc then your fingers are gone.

If your doing it in your employment then good luck, seen people sacked for much less.
