Diy Video Tutorial: Learn Angle Grinder Basics!

There aren't many tools more "grunt-worthy" than a powerful Angle Grinder. With a myriad of cutting, sanding and grinding discs available, you can use it to rough-cut wood, sand cement, carve, grind, and cut metal! It's a workhorse in your power tool box. But, with the high speeds, torque, and risk of injury from flying bits as well as damaged discs, it is a valuable tool to use appropriately and safely.

Learn the basics of working with an Angle Grinder and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!

Before you even take the angle grinder out of that new, shiny box, be sure you have the proper safety equipment. You'll need the following:
