7 Amp 5 in. Straight Grinder is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are using this for polishing artwork, with layered cloth wheels. It should be a bit faster rpm... We are using this for polishing artwork, with layered cloth wheels. It should be a bit faster rpm, and more power, but perfect for smaller applications. It has the Makita quality that one expects, sturdy well built and also not too heavy for a frail hand to use. Good over all product, very pleased to own.
