    So I bought a Makita 18v grinder, and it could be a game changer. I'm using a Marcrist akkumax blade after being recommended one on here. So far so good. The only drawback is I'm coming home dustier, even though it's cut outdoors, but the blade as supplied is on the left, throwing the dust...

    Bosch grinder died

    So my Bosch variable grinder died yesterday, I think the switch has gone as there is power going to the switch ( I used a electrical pen ). So I phoned Bosch and they are picking it up today to have a look weather they can repair or send a new one out, only problem it’s a 10/12 day back log.

    What's your daily grinder

    What's your everyday grinder for cutting ? I have a bosch but the cord is driving me mad it's so rigid, not sure if it's getting more rigid as time goes on! I have a variable which has a lovely supple cord, so I bought the same model but none variable from PTT and that's got a normal cord on it.
