    do they still send out the surprise boxes anymore ???

    Not in the same way. Now it’s more occasional new review things for appropriate people

    more likely the btp tool tester club, right?
    still pretty cool to review new products which are not on the market at that time.

    They have a lot of criteria to qualify. In a nutshell, you generally need to be a regular user of whatever you will receive and must submit a decent review of your use and findings.

    It’s a bit of a fringe item for me. Been on and off my list for a long time. Then I realized some uses coming up for it that my little 4 1/2 grinders would just not be the right tool to have.

    But deciding to redeem for it was also because it is a tool that I likely wouldn’t buy for its use when needed. Some redemptions boil down to that factor alone versus getting other items that I would gladly pay for or know that I could likely get a deal on at some point. How often does one catch a 7in grinder for sale at some ridiculous sale or clearance price? Not me. So I went for it finally.

    Since I have everybody’s attention possibly, one use is to use it to score break lines in a concrete pour. I hate using the sidewalk line break tool for this as to me, unless it’s for an actual sidewalk, it looks stupid for a pad. What’s the way to use this grinder for that purpose and get a straight line? Is it as simple as grinding along a piece of straight edge scrap ply? Or do you just mark out a chalk line and freehand it?

    Wow some good boxes! Haven’t been many lately.
    Congrats Doobie on your grinder. I think your idea of going along a plywood edge may work good. I can say hang on to it. It is going to have some power.

    Congrats 58Chev on your L-RACK-S . Do you have a good collection of the going?

    Cool tool. Are you going to practice some dentistry now?

    @doobie that looks like one heck of a grinder! I like your reasoning too – makes sense to use the points where you wouldn’t be inclined to throw down the cash. And now you’ve got another great tool!



    @58chev
    congrats! What do you use those shelves for? Do they slip into an L-boxx?

    Nope. But maybe I can speed up my finger nail filling needs with it. 😨

    Almost forgot….thanks Jim and BTP for another great redemption! ☺

    #630582

    Nice to see some new redemptions. Congrats guys. @Doobie, besides your nail filing, any special project for that grinder?

    As previously mentioned below.

    Since I have everybody’s attention possibly, one use is to use it to score break lines in a concrete pour. I hate using the sidewalk line break tool for this as to me, unless it’s for an actual sidewalk, it looks stupid for a pad. What’s the way to use this grinder for that purpose and get a straight line? Is it as simple as grinding along a piece of straight edge scrap ply? Or do you just mark out a chalk line and freehand it?

    I do also see it being useful for cutting rebar instead of dragging out my abrasive chop saw.

    I may also get the accessory cups and the cup shroud for concrete surface grinding although I do already have the dedicated 5in 1773AK concrete surface grinder.

    Congrats @doobie and @58chev

    Those are some real nice redemptions

    Congratulations Kevin, that’s a nice grinder, looks huge compare to the 4 1/2 I’m used to using.

    Just arrived, well packaged, undamaged, hand delivered by the nice Purolator man. Looking forward to trying out the new HDS-183 hammer drill/driver.

    Thanks to Jim, Bosch and the BTP crew.

    BE the change you want to see.
