  9. Diamond Edge Cut Off Wheels

    Love the rigid but when it gets dull I might get the lenox . Ive probably made 65 ish cuts with the rigid fast cutting but with thicker stuff doesnt work the thickest ive cut is 1/4 .Here's a couple pictures of brass I cut did a lot better then I though . The brass is 1/2 thick for about half of it . Also a little late but loved the comparison video jimbo did a great job man 👍👍👍

  13. Sad Bosch

    I had to finally replace the cord on my baby 9 inch Bosch grinder that's around 40ish years old . with the old cord I am going to bend and cut spell out Bosch and hang it up. The reason why I changed it because the terminals plug part they were too short .

  25. Grizzly TrackSaw

    So this tool came into the repair shop I work at and all I can say is what the biggest piece of shit and stupid design . First of all the plastic its made out of feels cheap . We were replacing a cord that got Cut and that was a joke ya got to take the whole damn thing apart and screws in locations no screwdriver could get to 😑 . Lets just say 30mins later I still didnt get it off and set it to the side the screws on the side of the guard were cheap ass Chinese screws . Advise Do Not Buy its Chinese's Trash
