Many uses, great addition to the tool kit.
As the third WEN tool being added to my tool collection, I was expecting a solidly built and well performing tool that was pretty much ready to go right out of the box. WEN delivered again, and this 4.5” grinder is a good little tool. Requiring the same amount of ‘assembly’ as just about any other grinder: the guard has to be attached, the handle screwed on and (of course) some sort of cutting wheel or abrasion disc must be wrenched into place. All three of these tasks are easy to complete; all you’ll need is a screw driver and the included wrench to get a disc into place. Once these three items are in place, you’re ready to go. The on/off switch does have some fight in it, which most certainly will prevent an accidental power on. Considering how fast this spins (11,000rpm), avoiding an accident like that certainly is a good idea. I was able to successfully grind some rust off some tools with very little effort with the included grinding disc and even moderately sharpen up a very rounded chisel in no time at all. I do wish that a cut off wheel would have been included as that would have been a ‘nice to have’. The weight of the tool is a little heavy. It’s not overly heavy, but it does feel as if it’s just a little too much for a tool this size. Extended use could be a little wearing on the user and I feel that WEN could have shaved a few ounces here and there. Especially considering that this is a one speed machine (it’s either on full power or off) the weight and gyroscopic ability of the wheel do add up. My major complaint is the lack of good storage it comes with. The cardboard box it came in is very flimsy and I’ve managed to tear it once already. I prefer tools that come in hard plastic cases, as it keeps the dust off them and the spiders out of them. I will have to go through the effort of a finding a good method of storing this grinder, as its probably the first electric or pneumatic tool that I have that does not have a decent box, solid case or even a fabric bag to keep it in.

A GOOD INEXPENSIVE ANGLE GRINDER
This angle grinder is remarkable for a tool for this price range. You can spend a lot more on an angle grinder but it won't be a whole lot better. There's really not many features to a grinder and this one has most of the ones the more expensive ones have. It has an adjustable wheel guard, a spindle lock button to prevent rotation of the wheel, a right angle handle, there's a grinding wheel included, a wheel nut and wheel nut tool, they even throw in an extra set of brushes for the electric motor. About the only thing it doesn't have is variable speed. The switch is on/off only. I have used it quite a bit since receiving it and I'm very impressed. It's light, but not too light. The wheel is well balanced so there's no extra vibration. The tool itself is well balanced and feels good in your hand. The only thing I can't know about it at this time is longevity, but otherwise it's a very nice tool. And finally, I know when you buy a new tool, you just want to get it out and try it as soon as you get it home. Me too. Also, I know the last thing you want to do is consider safety. Me too. I've been lucky. I've never really had any safety concerns other than a few minor injuries (I drove a phillips head bit on a impact driver in one side of my thumb and out the other, I've had some "shocking" experiences, and some other incidents too boring to mention). However, the older I get the more important safety issues become. When I got this angle grinder, I just wanted to fire it up and grind some stuff. I'm working on a project that required the use of the cutting disk (not included) and I really needed to get it done. Instead of jumping right into it though, I took time to review some online safety procedures associated with this grinder and ran across some videos of what not to do with a hand held grinder and why you shouldn't do them. Ew...they showed some gruesome images (one guys face was basically split in half, forehead to chin). They caused me to really pay attention while I was re-learning how to properly use a grinder. I know it sound preachy, but please be careful when using power tools. The damage is done, often in less than a second, before you've realized anything went wrong. Wow...Sorry for the lecture.

grinder works very well, has plenty of power, on/off switch...
grinder works very well, has plenty of power, on/off switch is a little tricky to get used too. but for the price you won't find any better. I used a 4" cutting disc for steel from my other grinder (4" Makita that I have had for years) since it only came with a 4.5" grinding disc, it will accept 4.5" and smaller discs. just needed an inexpensive one for home use and this one meets my needs, would recommend.
