From mechanics to plumbers, handymen have relied on cordless grinders to complete many tasks. The same can be said with DIY enthusiasts and homeowners. So, investing in a cordless grinder, whether you are a professional or an amateur handyman gets a lot of work done in half the time.
Whether you are cutting through metal or doing some carpentry work, you need to make sure that you are using a reliable handheld power tool. And our cordless grinders does not disappoint.
Grinders are among the most versatile power tools in your workshop. They’re great for smoothing edges, removing or trimming excess materials and sharpening your tool set.
Types of grinders
Grinders come in different styles.
These powerful and sturdy grinders are secured to a bench or stand for maximum control. They have two grinding wheels, one on either side of the motor.
Portable grinders are available as angle grinders and die grinders and are usually smaller and handier than bench grinders. Final shaping and touch-ups are often best done with a portable grinder.
Angle grinders are maneuverable and versatile. They're great for smoothing, sanding, sharpening and cutting.
Die grinders are designed for one-hand operation with smaller blades and higher speeds for fine detail work in tight spaces. A mini-grinder is ideal for precise jobs like shaping and engraving.
Types of grinding wheels
Different types of grinding wheels are effective on different surfaces.
This is a high-abrasive grinding wheel, great for working with materials like grey iron, brass, aluminum and stone. It is also recommended for sharpening and rounding metal tools and pipes.
Aluminum oxide and zirconia alumina are the best materials for grinding steel and steel alloys. Both are strong and durable. Aluminum oxide is built for superior precision and is also great for woodworking and materials that might otherwise crumble under pressure.
The classic wheel shape looks like a regular circle, with the grinding edge on the outside.
Others like cylinder and cup wheels are named for their shapes and built to reach and grind highly specific materials.
Eye shield: Some grinders, especially bench grinders, feature a guard above the wheels for protection from flying debris
Side handle: Many angle grinders have an adjustable handle for a safe and precise grip
Spindle lock: This button allows you to lock or release your grinder wheel
Soft start: This feature forces the grinder to start slowly, making it safer and easier to handle
Factors to consider when buying a grinder
Consider power output and durability when buying your next grinder.
Replacing parts: Certain types of grinder wheels, like aluminum oxide, require more frequent replacement. Consider the longevity of each material when making your purchase.
Pneumatic vs. electric: While electric grinders are generally powerful, pneumatic compressed air grinders are best when precision is necessary since they can be lighter and easier to handle.
Precision: Choose a grinder based on the kind of work you’ll be doing. A portable cordless grinder enables you to move about freely while a stationary bench grinder offers less flexibility.
Power isn’t everything when it comes to your new grinder. Consider the materials you’ll be working with and how much control you'll need to do the job right.
Grinders are useful and versatile power tools that can be found in a variety of different workshops. From auto garages and large fabrication shops to the DIY craftsman’s shop, having a grinder on hand can help with a bevy of applications.
