Default Great Deal on 4 1/2" angle grinders at Home Depot

My home depot had TWO Makita 4.5" angle grinders for 85 dollars as a "two pack" deal.

Yeah, Lowes has that one on clearance for ~$45 and the dewalt was $49. Just couldn't justify TWO grinders!

I was tempted too. I needed a grinder buddy to share the deal though.

You can get a really inexpensive Black & Decker 4-1/2" at WalMart for $20.00.

Thankfully, I was able to borrow my dad's, but when I went to menards to get some new cutting wheels, I saw an angle grinder for $15 with a $5 MIR, for a total of $10. Granted it was the menards store brand (Tool Shop I believe), but if you're only going to use it to cut 1-3 kegs, the price is definitely right.

In the end, I bought a cheaper Skil. It ain't like I use a grinder often enough to warrant having a good one. I'm kicking myself now though. If I had thought to ask this forum I would have been ok with that!

Don't cut yourself short on hand grinders be it 4" or 4 1/2" leaving 7-9" out of the picture for now.
What is handy is to have one grinder with a cutoff wheel, one or two hard wheels in different grits plus a couple different grit flexible disk flap wheels. One must add a grinder with a made for stainless only flap disk if your working with stainless materials. Like a bench grinder with one dedicated wheel for dressing tungsten Tig tips if your a Tig welder.
Nothing wastes more time than changing out wheels working off one grinder, this is worse than a full on nagging wife.
If you only have one grinder and it takes a dump your screwed right in the middle of a project. I use my grinders many times a week on projects if the back allows me to move around.

Check out Harbor Freight- I got a 4" angle grinder from them on a black Friday for $5, and a recip saw for $10. Harbor Freight is great for stuff that doesn't need to be top quality- clamps, roughing tools, etc. I wouldn't buy their router bits, but they do have some great deals on stuff.
