Angle Grinders £10

Post by pbar »

Aldi are selling angle grinders at just £10, worth getting even as a spare which is what I've just done. My current one which I use was from Aldi and I've had it years so they do last.

Good to know! Only last year did i replace a pair of £10 Focus DIY ones i bought when they close down, many years ago. Its a fatmax one which seems ok, again only paid £10 for it.

I have had my Ryobi 100mm grinders , one for 35 years from new the other 3 are made up of dead ones I bought on line for nix , just fitted new bearings and seals . But a grinder for 10 quid would be hard to pass up .

Dead right Hamish, I did walk past them a couple of times thinking I just don't need one, but the other voice, the devils one, and let's face it, the red guy is far more fun, he has the best tunes for a start, told me at that price you have to get it, if only to keep for a spare, although I know that a lot of people have more than one to a avoid changing disc types as much. Anyway I got one, thinking actually I should have got a couple.

You need at least 4 100mm grinders
Wire wheel , flap disc , cut off wheel , and grinding disc . If Im building a trailer ( as you do )I just got sick of swapping out discs ect . I usually fit longer heavy duty cords too .
My Dad just gave me a 150mm Hitachi grinder . WTF ? the guys a lawyer ,why does he need a big grinder ...." Oh , I had some fly buys about to expire and ......I never had a grinder before ...."

I wouldn’t buy one as I’d burn it out to quick. I’m happy with my makita cordless, dewalt corded one, 9” grinder and 12” stihl petrol saw. Thinking about it, I don’t need anymore :xd: :xd:
