    I got this off the rewards list several months ago. I mainly got it for carving wood, but I have been using it lots lately for its intended purpose of grinding metal welds and working with steel. I have to say this tool is super smooth and virtually no vibration. Very pleased with its performance thus fas and highly recommended if anyone is looking for one. I need to get some more grinding attachments, but I was pleased to see my local HD started stocking some cones — not a huge selection, but at least it is something.

    I’ve never used a die grinder myself..not sure if I would use it if I had one! Have you thought of doing a full review and posting some videos? I’d be interested to see the tool in action.

    Is it just for tight welds for grinding . Thought a disc grinder would be faster .

    Always willing to learn .

    Think of a die grinder as a high speed heavy duty Dremel tool. What they really work good for is removing metal in tight places where a regular grinder would not fit. They are use mainly with different shape carbide bits to remove and shape cast metals.

    I guess that answers my question…I barely touch my Dremel and I also have a RotoZip, which is primarily for drywall use.

    I will try and post some pics and plan on doing a full review. I will certainly shoot some video of it when I carve my chairs…yes, that project has been on hold for the last year too. It is a pretty versatile tool – I look at it like a router but using burrs and other grinding attachments.

    Tight welds? I think this Metabo flat head angle grinder does a better job.

    Wow that’s awesome grinder for those situations . The time test was a no brainier in seeing how effective it is over the die grinder .

    Always willing to learn .

    Metabo makes a nice grinder. At one time they were the top of the heap as far as quality went.

    That is an amazing design. I could have used one of those a while back while working on the frame of my car.
