I got this grinder disc last week and it is the bomb! It does rough out almost as quickly as a chain saw disc but leaves a much smoother surface.

I have been looking at the angle grinder disc's. Glad to know of some one that is happy with a product. Would you like have the course disc too? Or do you think the Medium is enough?

I especially like the see through feature so you can see what you are doing. The medium is very quick to remove wood. I think the fine tooth one will be my next purchase. I also like the chain saw disc too but it is a beast. great for really quick removal though. But all in all I think this medium disc is my favorite, I wish I had bought one ages ago.

I've thought about purchasing a grinder for years, but never have. What brand/model of grinder do you recommend for stick-making?

I use a Skil angle grinder that I had for other types of work. I would like a variable speed one but they are too expensive. I have also looked at the 2 inch grinders but they have poor ratings for durability Any cheap 41/2 inch grinder with one of these discs should be fine. they are that good. My grinder actually has way more power than I need for shaping wood..

I ordered the fine cut version so we can compare notes later.

Got the fine cut disc and it is every bit as good as the medium. It's cut also is very aggressive but does leave a smoother cut. I've had no problem with the teeth clogging but I've only used them on dry wood. I can see how they might if used on green wood.

Have looked at these type of disks but don't do any carving large enough to warrant this type of tool - one slip and my topper would be dust .

oftern considered getting one but think some of my work would require a more delicate tool to work with , would be good for larger pieces
