Common Uses of Angle Grinders
Angle grinders are versatile since they can handle a variety of wheels and accessories. When you put wire wheels and cups onto the threaded spindle, the angle grinder comes with a spindle washer and spindle nut, which you may install in various configurations to accommodate thicker or thinner wheels or remove entirely. Instructions for attaching wheels and accessories can be found in your handbook.
Metal Cleaning and Paint Removal
Wire wheels easily remove corrosion and flaking paint. Angle grinder attachments with wire wheels and brushes are designed for different types of stripping, cleaning, and deburring jobs. Stripping paint or rust from broad, flat areas is best done with wire cup brushes. Wire wheels are easier to fit into nooks and corners. Wheel and brush attachments are available in a range of designs. Look through the package to discover one that will work for your needs. Also, ensure sure the threads on your grinder match the spindle threads.
Cutting Bars, Bolts and Rods
In your angle grinder, install a metal cutoff wheel. The long side of the rebar should be propped up and held tightly. Drop the cutoff wheel through the metal and let the tool's weight perform most of the work. Allow the short end of the blade to fall freely to avoid binding it. Most metal can be cut with a hacksaw if you're patient. On the other hand, a grinder is hard to beat for rapid, harsh cuts. Rebar, angle iron, rusty fasteners, and welded wire fencing can all be cut using an angle grinder. For this and other metal-cutting jobs, use a low-cost cutoff wheel.
Cutting Tile, Concrete and Stone
On both the front and back of the tile, draw a precise outline of the cut. Clamp the tile to your workstation and make a 1/8-inch score around the perimeter. With the diamond blade, go deep in the front. With ordinary tile cutters, notching and cutting ceramic or stone tile to fit around outlets and other obstructions are difficult, if not impossible. An angle grinder with a dry-cut diamond wheel, on the other hand, makes quick work of these challenging cuts.
