We are looking at purchasing a new Angle Grinder for the space. Pledge opened: 20 December 2013

Pledge leader: penguin

The item

  • A 230 volt 110mm angle grinder and a selection of cutting wheels, and suitable gloves

Pledge is fulfilled, grinder bought. All is right with the world.

Be careful with all power tools!


Consensus is this is a great grinder, based on this Angle grinder review here.
