Angle grinders, also known as handheld, side, or disc grinders, are power tools that are used for cutting, grinding, shaping, and polishing, all types of materials. Electric Angle grinders are most often used for large, heavy duty jobs. These electric angle grinders allow you to bring the abrasive (the cutting, grinding, or polishing disc) to the material, making less work for you when shaping large slabs of marble, granite, or other natural stones. Although the angle grinders in this category are powered by electric motors, angle grinders are also available in styles that are powered by gas motors and compressed air.
No matter what motor your angle grinder has, they all drive a geared head at a right-angle that you attaché an abrasive disc or cut off wheel to in order to make your cuts with. These discs can be changed as needed, either because they wear out or you need to use the angle grinder for a different application. Different applications will require using different abrasive discs, here at DeFusco we carry a wide selection of grinding and cut off discs for use in angle grinders for numerous stone fabrication applications.
The two most important factors when choosing an angle grinder for your application are the size of the grinding discs it supports and the power of the motor. Additional factors include the power source, arbor size, and rpm. The majority of angle grinders will include a side-handle to allow for two-handed operation, which allows for easier and more accurate work. In addition, some angle grinders come with adjustable guards, so keep these in mind when selecting your angle grinder.
