Questions & Answers

does this makita die grinder have variable speed?

Asked by: steve
Yes
Answered by: Daniel
Date published: 2017-08-20

Can you use a 3 inch wheel with 3/8 arbor?

Asked by: Hangrin
The collet size on this die grinder is 1/4 inch.
Answered by: Daniel
Date published: 2017-09-22

is there a 1/8 collet available for this model?

Asked by: jeff
For a 1/8" bit, I would use a smaller tool like a Dremel. Die grinders are heavy and it can be challenging doing fine work with a 1/8" size shank and such a large tool..
Answered by: Daniel
Date published: 2017-09-22

Why do they make 1/4 inch to 3/8 adapter then? How many inches is 33mm

Asked by: Hangrin
The shaft size of burs and bits can change depending on the job and the 'load' placed on the tool. It's handy to be able to replace the collet so that the tool is more versatile and can use a wider variety of burs and bits.

Very quiet, pretty light . the long nout is perfect length. I don't know if I need a variable speed , never used one. I just lightly touch , & grind slowly, a little at a time I'm just about all bl;ue with my tools . I have three grinders that are all over two years old & are used at least 4 to five days a week. i have changed out the cords on them all twice , but that's a small price to pay , & I'm getting pretty fast at that

I have used this grinder to grind out welds and shorten bolts and it worked very well for both tasks. Nice simple toggle switch and very strong motor. Overall impression is well-made and durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makita 3.5 amp Die Grinder I bought it to grid places where a 4.5 disc grinder cannot reach when I'm welding .It works well for my application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from light weight and easy to use I purchased the Makita Die Grinder to use for detail work on my chain saw carving hobby. My hope was that the Makita Die Grinder would help with detailing the facial features on my carvings. The Makita Die Grinder did not disappoint me, works as advertised. Quiet operation, light weight, easy to handle and a really nice feature is the rubberized nose for gripping. I would definitely recommend the Makita brand to a friend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Might Be Hard to Beat This grinder surprised me for how smooth and quiet running it is,.....it is a dandy. It doesn't have the usual scream that most all DC brush type motors have. I would ask, "how'd they do that?" Using a new 3/8" dia carbide bit, this little grinder will hog metal like you wouldn't believe,......it did a 3 hr job in 1 hr. I'm not sure I like the feature of the air blowing out of the front of the grinder. I got a lot of messy blow back that I didn't get w/ my elcheepo $19 grinder that broke. This is the only thing that I can give a negative comment on.
