I admit, I have a workshop tool addiction :-)

    I mentioned an electric die grinder recently.....

    I bought a Makita https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Makita-GD0...311421&hash=item58981ceb3c:g:IHIAAOSwbsBXnzG8 for a nice bit less than that but same model.

    Got to use it properly for the first time on Saturday, it lacks the drama of an air grinder, and I think lacks the outright balls, but I could do with a new burr to say for sure.

    But it never slows, you never have to wait for the tank to refill so you still get more done.

    Just a few minutes from a to b in 5mm box

    That's the tool I "need"!
    I have a cheapo air one and a little compressor which makes it painfull to use.
    Decent price that.

    It cuts out quite quickly when you push it, and also it's quite heavy. Maybe not compared to other brands but much heavier then a corded one (obviously).
    Only bought it to save on the extension cord hassle for small jobs, we'll see.

    Grab a few extra batteries @£11.99 well worth having a few as only 2 amp hour bought the sabre saw and impact driver as well and have 6 batteries . The 3 year warranty they come with what's not to like for your money .

    They also had a 4 amp battery. However I thought I'd try first. Maybe I'll go crazy and get the sawzall as well, would only be like €40 extra compared to a 2 amp battery alone

    Not a chain or lock in the land will be safe now if they’re flogging cheap battery grinders in the car boot isles at Lidl...!!

    I don't know if they are in the shops, bought my grinder online and the 4 amp battery was listed.
    I really didn't feel like fighting a granny for one.
