Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jim49 Difficult Switch
Overall, the grinder works well for the price. I cannot understand why you made the switch so difficult to use. My thumb hurts ! Unacceptable component

My old grinder quit in the middle of a job. When I went to replace it, the sales person tried to sell me a more costly model, so I left that store and went to another. I have never owned a skil product before, but I am happy with this one. I like the idea of carrying the tool in the handle, but I wonder if it will still be a tight fit after a few years. The switch should be on the top of the machine, not on the side. It would be easier to control as I do not lock it on.
I think it was a good choice to get this Skil grinder.

I can't loosen the lock nut to replace the grinding wheel. It won't budge. Based on what I see it should loosen if I apply pressure while pulling to the left. Is this right or does it loosen by pulling to the right?

Bought this to do some concrete work a couple years ago. Since then, I retired and started taking welding classes and use this little grinder on all my projects. Looking at buying another so I don't have to swap accessories so often. Highly recommend this grinder.Great value for a good price.

I bought this to grind off broken screw and bolt stubs in a vintage travel trailer. It works just fine for that, has adequate power to handle bolts and smoothing welds down. I like the handle having three positions, and being able to move the blade guard around so it doesn't block the work. I have no complaints so far and I hope I can still like the tool a year from now!

This tool is perfect for me. It does exactly what I need it to. I was worried about how cheap it was and if it would last. Not anymore, skil is now a brand I trust and am actually saving to buy more tools from.

I have had 2 of these and they both were junk. Will never buy any more skill tools.
