Grinder Buying Guide

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.

By removing excess surface material, grinders can be used to shape, sharpen, grind, and polish materials. With the appropriate attachment or wheel, grinders can be used on many types of materials including stone, metal, wood, plastic, and other materials.

  • How large of a grinder to you need?

  • What attachments and wheels might add extra versatility that would be useful?
