bargain, bought one today, most decent cutting discs cost more!

I also bought one today and then bought a Silverline 633588 Turbo Wave Diamond Cutting Blade off Amazon. Heat added.

good find op, heat added

I nearly reserved one and then saw this hotukdeals.com/dea…926 and reserved this one instead.

Great for my toe nails.


Hot.

I see that Homebase have 3 models: 2000W (this one), 1050W and 750W. If I were just to buy one, would I be better off buying this one rather than either of the other 2? It would just be for home DIY stuff, although I guess it would come in handy if I ever needed to cut through my bike lock.

what size is this 4 inch or 9 inch

Can confirm that disc size is 230mm which equates to 9 inches. No discs included. Better to buy discs through Amazon.

Got one, thanks.


On an unrelated note, does anyone know what kind of license is required to open a tattoo removal business?

you don't need a licence, just peel it off.

oO

Tradesman here I bought one of these to replace my old burnt out one,wasn't expecting much but its totally surprised mr very good grinder that ive used cutting very thick concrete without issue and cut many paving slabs too.for this price its a bargain I paid £50 for mine

will I be able to get the grinding I always dreamed of with this one??

Definitely need 2KW for a 9" grinder, imagine the torque needed to drag a diamond blade embedded 4" deep in a brick wall.

These are heavy though (or should be); unless you've got arms like a Worlds Strongest Man contestant they're no good for de-rusting big bits of metal etc.

This one is a 9" grinder the one you bought is only 4.5" this one is twice as big.

If you do any significant amount of work, you want a 9" and a 4.5" angle grinder.

The main advantage of the 9" model is depth of cut. For example, if you want to cut a doorway through a brick wall, this is the one to have. They do need handling with respect though.

The smaller sizes are good for any small cleaning up jobs or cutting where a smaller depth of cut is required.

For the home user (such as myself), the small one gets regular use & the large one is occasional use only. But I still need it. Since it is not in regular use, a cheap one will probably do fine. My large one is a Wickes branded one.

​ well you've ordered two different sizes so not really a matter of which is best. you've ordered a Stanley 115mm and Guild 230mm. (although I'm guessing if they were the same size the Stanley one would be better. why not check Amazon reviews for both?

any good for car polishing? someone tried it ?

any good for car polishing? someone tried it ?



do not even attempt to do it with any fixed speed grinder, it will bounce as soon you touch the car, too fast. You need one with speed controller. LIDL does do one at less than £20 from time to time. It is very but very good as a grinder and polisher, also with a powerful 1200w motor and takes anything up to 125mm

No. Buy a proper buffer if you want an electric one. These are entirely unsuitable for car paintwork.

Just tried it on mine, a few minor scuffs but it's nothing a bit of T-Cut won't fix...

Will this take 9" and 4" discs or is it just for 9"???

Oos nearby closest 15 miles away, not worth it for me but heat added

​you wouldn't want to put a 4.5" disc in it. It's far to heavy for small work. At £13 for the smaller one grab one of those aswell.

Hi,
I need to remove bathroom wall tiles. Will this do?

dreamer181

Hi,I need to remove bathroom wall tiles. Will this do?



​no - you want a hammer and chisel

dreamer181

Hi,I need to remove bathroom wall tiles. Will this do?



​ I'm definitely no expert on the subject but reckon you'd need an sds drill with hammer only motion (3 settings - drill/hammer + drill/hammer) and get a sds chisel bit around 75mm wide. chisel the tiles off. you could, if you have one, use a multitool with grout removal bit in it to cut out some grout to get you started with the sds hammer. Lidl had some pretty powerful sds drills last week for £40 but they might be a bit heavy depends how much is tiled. if you did want to cut the grout out with an angle grinder then this one is overkill, get the Stanley one for same price. probably have dust everywhere that way though. or just use a hammer and bolster if you don't mind a bit of graft!
here's an sds with hammer only from homebase for £29.53 3.8kg, not too bad for continuous work click here NOTE if you get this drill it's an SDS plus, different fitting to SDS. so just make sure you get an SDS plus bit for it

reserved, awaiting my cancellation call lol

Nice spot - I got one of the three available at Bristol Longwell green yesterday.

Any reason why people are opting for the silverline discs on amazon over this:
toolstation blade

Looks identical, but 1/3 less the cost?

​same question, would be good to get some thoughts on blades.

haven't looked around so may be cheaper elsewhere... but i was just browsing the campbellmiller website and these (not diamond) genuine bosch metal grinding discs were in the clearance section £2.50 each free delivery maybe helps someone
Edited by: "reg66" 3rd Sep 2016

On the comments about blades, I've looked and looked over again for a blade that's good enough to cut the council street grade slabs (harder than the b&q tat they sell for like £1 a square foot) and found that this one cuts it like a hot knife through butter. I've got the 115mm for the smaller grinder which is like £4 and now going to go for the 230mm version as I know it works a treat.

toolstation.com/sho…187

Just a thought for anyone who finds a long track to get to a homebase that has stock.. Here's a thought, if I remember rightly Argos and homebase are both part of the same umbrella company. So if homebase sells it for cheaper then surely Argos could price match it ?

argos.co.uk/sta…htm?CMPID=GS001&_$ja=tsid:59156%7Ccid:596310901%7Cagid:28594123885%7Ctid:pla-182969921365%7Ccrid:95887239565%7Cnw:g%7Crnd:1657436230763635617%7Cdvc:t%7Cadp:1o1&gclid=CKTswPO98c4CFdXGGwodYEQJbw

Please update if I'm wrong or if anyone's tried this

fair enough if you've got some already for your 115mm grinder, but for future reference you might want to consider these £4.89 for 3 with free delivery if you choose the seller on the right (not the main seller on page), great reviews

Nice one for that price its worth a go. Cheers

Got one yesterday - seems a decent enough piece of kit.
only hic is when I read the instructions (well I sometimes do that -sad!)
the guard that comes with it is only for a cutting blade - you are supposed to buy a special guard for grinding!
Not quite sure as the guard supplied seems wide enough for a grinding disk & it seem a bit stupid selling an 'Angle Grinder' with a missing part!

picked up one from altrincham store (ordered online). Drove about 20 mile , only to be told they didn't have it. showed them confirmation email & eventually they did find one ( apparently very common for people to order online , then go to collect & find shop has no stock). I'm glad I went to the shop instead of ringing them to check I could collect. Now to find some metal cutting disks (cheapest so far is 10 for just under £15 on famous auction site ) not checked for grinding disks.

Theres still quite a few floating about in the west / north london areas. Finchley had about 6 on the shelf today
