9 inch angle grinder

Recommended Posts

I have a Makita 9 inch angle grinder which I don’t like using because of the risk. 

I am using a smaller grinder with electronic braking, deadman switch and speed control for cutting and grinding and I have a bench stand for a smaller (100mm) grinder and wondered if there is a way of repurposing the 9 inch grinder.

suggestions?

I think the 9" grinder is one of the most usefull metal working tools...they need guards  and apropriat PPE and need to be used carefully but I use mine on a daily basis I have one set up for cutting and one for grinding and one with a cup wheel for hogging. like a power hammer they are potentially dangerous but also like a power hammer they can do a lot of work and be used with precision.

Not much else it can do but grind. And if it's that large and you feel the need to repurpose it then sell it for what you need. Personally I'd keep it and use it as the metal moving monster that it is.

Keep the 9 inch for the appropriate size Jobs. They were made that size for a reason. When you try to re-purpose the 9 inch, you are getting into areas it was not designed to do.  Purchase a smaller grinder for the small stuff. Each has its place.
