Hi I just got a new grinder and I am having trouble finding a 4 1/2 and 5/8 arbour. If anyone has a website I would appreciate it

It is Metabo W7-115 Quick you can look at there website here (http://www.metabo.com/metabo/com/en/produkte/anglegrinders/w7115quick_6_00715_00.html) I hope the link works.

I think I got the piece you're needing at Lowe's for about 3.99

Be VERY careful about buying wheels from internet vendors, cheap wheels are rarely even worth mounting.

Metabo are some of the finest tools made, I use that size grinder daily at work and will buy one as a replacement, when my Dewalt dies!

I bought a 5" about 14 or 15 yrs ago. It's still kicking just as good as ever. They definitely take a beating and come out smiling. Well, mine sure has. You may pay a little more but it's worth it if it'll last that long,IMO.:blob3:
I've got a 7" Bosch that's older. They are pretty good too.

i have four metabos 2 4 1/2 a 6 and a 7 they all have a 5/8 11 thread and take disks with a 7/8 arbor, you cant find a grinder that beats them , they are the best period and if someone doesnt get good results and lif e out of them them there doin somthing wrong, the 6 is my overal favorite with a slice wheel its cut anything and everything i allso keep and a couple diamond wheels handy since i use them on the job to cut concrete over flow on slabs or cut alittle firther in the corner of egress windows that i cant reach or dont trust myself doing with a demo saw well thats my 2 cents
