Choosing Your Die Grinder
Questions to ask:
• How big is the object on which you are working? This varies from very small, e.g. jewellery items to large objects e.g. welded parts of a building construction. The smallest die grinder is the same length as a writing pen. The largest die grinder can be used as a light weight angle grinder. If you’re working on a smaller the item, you’ll need a smaller die grinder.
• How precise must your work be? Apart from your skill as workman a small machine will deliver more delicate precise results. Larger machines produce quick and rougher results on larger objects. For more precision, you’ll need a smaller die grinder with a higher free speed.
• Is the work just too small for an angle grinder? If so, use the HIT NG150 6” Heavy Duty
• Do you need an angled or straight head? If you need an angled head, then use the HIT 549W 1/4” Angle Die Grinder
