Angle Grinder

What are Angle grinders?

Angle grinders are power tools that are typically used for removing excess material from a particular piece. Angle grinders can be used on various materials that need specialized attachments like cut-off discs (diamond blade), abrasive grinding discs, grinding stones, sanding discs, wire brush wheels and polishing pads. Angle grinders are versatile power tools that are a part of a tool brand range and offers specialized functionalities like grinding metal and cutting tile, stucco, and pavers, routing out the mortar, and can perform sanding, polishing and sharpening other tools.

These tools have large-scale use in metalworking and construction and are the instrument of choice during emergency rescues. They mostly adorn workshops, service garages and auto body repair shops and are an ideal companion in workmanship tasks.

Types of and Applications Angle Grinders

Angle grinders usually come in a huge variety created for the specific need. Every job function requires specialized grinder with the right disc size as well as the motor, power source (pneumatic or electric), rpm, and arbor size. The motor power is directly proportional to the disc size which is usually measured in inches or millimetres. Discs for pneumatic grinders are much smaller and are generally used for lighter duty jobs that need precision. Electric grinders are the heavy-duty tools, more commonly used for more extensive, heavy-duty jobs. However, it is not necessary that pneumatic grinders have to be small electric grinders have to be large, there are also small electric grinders and large pneumatic grinders.

Angle grinders are available in varied sizes and can come in very cheap to very expensive makes. Angle grinders’ ability to handle different wheels and accessories makes them very versatile. There are times when your angle grinders include a spindle washer and spindle nut such that it allows you to install different configurations to accommodate thicker or thinner wheels. It can also help cut structures like pillars and beams altogether.

Even though one can cut most metal with a hacksaw, but angle grinders are unbeatable when you have to cut into rebar, angle iron, rusted bolts, and welded wire fencing. An angle grinder is fitted with a dry-cut diamond wheel makes such difficult cuts easy.
