    So I don’t know if my grinder is flawed or it is the nature of the tool but my Bosch grinder with the paddle switch is terrible to operate. The paddle locks and won’t release. I literally have to pull the plug.

    This was a tool I redeemed here it started with a missing button and which Jim had to send me a replacement part so it could just be a flawed tool butt a shame it’s not more user-friendly.

    Today I hooked up a shroud cutting Guide to the Grindr so I can hook up my dust extractor and cut plaster inside a house. To increase efficiency I taped close the side opening of the shroud. I would say 95% of the Dust was consumed. Unfortunately the design of the Shroud you cannot see what you’re cutting there’s no indication markers or anything visible to see the blade once you start cutting.

    I was excited to use it and ended up disappointed.

    As most tools with full shrouds you can’t see what you are cutting so what I do make a offset line and fallow that with the shoe of the tool. It works great.

    The hilti I have allows for the dust shroud to open up on one side so you can see the line, but the dust collection is affected where it loses some dust. I wonder if bosch has a shroud with this feature on it as well.

    Maybe if someone made them for such a purpose with a laser line that emits from the grinder shrpud before and after where the cut line is it would help with this issue.

    Well thats a problem…but here’s a potential solution.

    Mark the blade location on the front edge of the grinder with a sharpie, then remove the shroud and cut a notch in that location. If you marked the blade location properly, you’ll now have a reference mark much like the front shoe of a circular saw.

    This was exactly my own solution but in the meantime did a visual spot of the shroud I felt was close. I was so turned off by it……I stopped trying to make it work and grabbed my old one that is reliable as the day I bought it.

    Yeah that’s the one. 4 1/2″ right?
    The paddle would be safer if it didn’t lock.
