30 seconds is all this lasted
The second one lasted a minute before the smoke escaped
Third time lucky?
You will never spin the rollers with that
2 hands and 12 stone on it not surprised buy a 5 inch Makita one
trying to dyno the grinder
So the equivalent of a years usage out of that would set you back about the price of 10,000 Milwaukee units.
Cheap ain't always cheap lol.
Where in Rhodes???
Oh well its still got 364 days, 23hours 59 minutes and 30 seconds of warranty so it should not be a problem.
Been a while since i was 12 stone
Meanwhile, my £8 b&q special 4.5" grinder is still going strong - the same one I took apart on youtube and also used to demonstrate freehand drill bit sharpening.
Sometimes it's the operator and not the tool
Sometimes the failure isn't electrical......
This one lasted about an hour, I had already sent its predecessor back as it arrived with a broken switch. This one made a satisfying thud as it hit the workshop bin. Replaced it with a not too spendy Screwfix job which has a two year warranty -I made sure to keep the receipt.
I purchased 3.....2 blew up. Lol
To give the manufacture of that some credit, with a casting that thin i am amazed they managed to assemble it without it braking.
Were you standing on it to snap the casing and deform the cup brush like that?
A dab or two of Araldite'd soon fix that.........
I've had a £50 dewalt 4.5" out of screwfix for about 3 years and it's had some serious abuse, still going strong.
It's aren't it's money many times over. Buy a dewalt, Makita, metabo you can't go wrong. Even hitachi aren't too sad.
Fixed that for you
^ Have you tried JB-weld
I picked up a £8 grinder from Homebase when I was driving around a few years back, it never worked when I got it home but would have cost more than £8 petrol to take it back.
Not all cheap stuff is junk, both my Argos grinders (4.5" and 9") are still going strong after lots of years use/abuse...
I have a Dewalt at home & a Hitachi at work both have been used very hard with no problems at all
I have a 4 inch Makita that i have had 20 years and it was second hand then
Every time it gets a new flex i re grease the gear case
The 9 inch Woolf grinder is at least ten years old (not used much as i am afraid of it)
Big aluminium job that came out of the ship yards
