Top Angle Grinder Uses?
Angle grinders spin at magnificent speeds, so with the correct cutting disc fitted, it can be used for cutting through different types of materials, such as metal, bricks, aluminum, steel, wood, stone and concrete. They can also be used for making plunge cuts in tiles if you need to remove a section.
Grinding Discs are used for grinding down metal or stone to shape it or smooth down a freshly made cut. They will also smooth out fresh welds as well as remove grout and mortar, providing a fast material removal in many situations. Depressed center grinding wheels will handle tough right-angle grinding applications. Deburring is essential after cutting metal, as the angle grinder will often leave behind jagged edges.
Angle grinders can also be used for polishing metal thanks to their high RPM. The main tool for doing so is a flap disc or wire wheel. They provide rapid cleaning action on many materials. These versatile grinder attachments will clean, polish and deburr all-in-one. Whilst grinding discs are great, and often an essential after cutting through metal, they may cause some scratches to be left on your workpiece. This is where your flap disc will come in. Wire brushes are also great at removing stubborn paint from a variety of surfaces.

Fun Facts About Angle Grinder Size
ADo you know the size of angle grinder is not determined by the length of the tool itself but by the size of the disc? The most commonly-used grinder disc size is with a diameter of 12.5 cm, which is suitable for cutting wood or metal with a maximum thickness of 2-3 cm. But it is not recommended to use it for cutting stones or concrete. The 18cm discs can be used for small pieces of wood, thin metal and aluminum, which are 4-5cm thick. The 23 cm discs can cut larger pieces of any material that is 7-8cm thick. Normally, smaller discs can spin way faster and leave a clear cut.
Angle Grinder Dicks
Ordinary Abrasive Consolidated Abrasives are abrasives that are consolidated into a certain shape by a bonding agent and have a certain strength. Generally composed of abrasive, bonding agent and pores, these three parts are often referred to as the three elements of a consolidated abrasive.
According to the different abrasives used, it can be divided into ordinary abrasive consolidated abrasives and super-hard abrasive consolidated abrasives. The former is made of ordinary abrasives such as corundum and silicon carbide, and the latter is made of super-hard abrasives such as diamond and cubic boron nitride.
For grinding concrete and metal use grinding disk.
Ceramic or white aluminum oxide disks are available for cutting and grinding harder steels such as stainless steel.

When attaching your disc, check the specification. The max RPM on the disc should meet or exceed the max RPM of the angle grinder you plan to use. If the rated speed of the disc is lower than your grinder, chances are that the wheel would fly apart.
