    Bob I think it would be interesting if you started a thread on your burnishing tool and how you used it on some of your projects.

    If you go New Milwaukee, I'd get the this one with more metal body, old-style.
    I am guessing 40+ years old on mine. It will outlast me that's for sure..

    Looks like the arbor is quite recessed??? will it take bigger than a 6 inch? or is that about it.. I like my dewalts because you can put 7's on em' and bigger if you want and can keep the fingers out of the way works real good for putting up faux stone with a 7 inch thin diamond blade

    I don't use those for everything I mainly use a 60volt Dewalt cordless grinder when out of the shop and one of several Metabo's in the shop. That grinder is designed for getting into tight spots that you can't reach with a regular grinder. Not sure if a 7 will work I'll have to check.

    You better have the handle attached and hold on when you squeeze the trigger.

    I have onea those old Milwaukee... your not kidding bout the startup torque! I have several of the plastic junk ones.. all are dead that old aluminum one only has a plastic handle and the huge 12 or 10 gauge cord (its thicker than my 12 gauge cords on my HD77 Skil saws etc..) that grinder disappeared 12 years ago.. I replaced it with a Hitachi and 2 Makitas they are o.k but no match for the ol Milwaukee I found it again 2 years ago.. it had somehow ended up on my moms back porch buried under boxes of crap she collected up rodents peed on it and the big cord dried out.... cleaned it up and its back working today... can't find that big heavy cord the replacement cords I've ordered all are alot smaller so the places where it cracked are wrapped with silicone tape..... with a 9" disk it will take down metal about 3 times faster than any of my 4.5s BUT ya gotta be awake cause when she fires up it tries to jump outa your hands...

    My favorite side grinders are Hitachi, I think Metabo bought them out.

    The first right angle grinder I ever bought was a Hitachi back in 1983. It has been maintenance free and performed flawlessly all these years...



    It does have a Makita side handle on it theses days. I can’t remember, but the OEM may have been wooden. Definitely not stone though...

    I use Pearl discs for 1/8" grinding wheels, and they do work really nice for the price. Nothing compared to the performance of 3M Cubitron II grinding discs though.

    Here's my beast. Inherited it from my dad. Probably 40 to 50 years old. Weighs in at 15 lbs. If you hold it over your head and stand on one foot when you hit the switch, it will spin you like an ice skater
