  1. Hi guys, I own a 125mm Makita grinder (GA5030R) . Got it 2 or 3 months ago. I was using it with a wire brush, it heated up and stopped working. It works but slowly and makes weird noises, smells a bit like burnt something. What happened? Is this supposed to happen? I got a Makita thinking I was buying something better than the cheap stuff you buy in supermarkets. Thanks for any help
  2. Thanks guys, How can I tell if the Milwaukee has anti-jamming protection?
  3. Hi guys, I own 2 large angle grinders (230mm / 9' disks): one is a Milwaukee 2000w 9.2A, and I guess it's 2003 (it says G2003), and it says made in germany. It's in perfect working order, it has 3 screws for the handle, and the protection is quick adjust. I don't know which model it is. the other one is an AEG (orange) ws-22-230, it's 2019 (current) model, here are the specs: https://www.aeg-powertools.eu/en-eu/products/metalworking/grinders/ws-22-230 This one has a rubber grip, I guess the start process is slower (clutch?), only 2 screws for the handle and the protection needs a hex key to move around. Unfortunately it says "Made in PRC", which does not give me a lot of confidence. Both of them look and function great (even though one is 15 years older than the other. So, my question is: If I have to keep just one, which should I keep and why? Thanks for any input.
  4. Hi guys, I'm working a bit on construction, and I'm getting a bit obsessed with quality gear. Used but good. Hope to learn a bit here.
