    Very happy with this setup (12v body shown but I have the 18v and also a corded body)

    Oooh, that looks very convenient.

    Well, I'm married to DeWalt and can't afford that divorce so I guess I'm out of luck.

    I find it best for doing fine plunge cuts to things. Like cutting a hole for an outlet or finishing cuts that the circular saw just couldn't quite reach like corners and stuff.
    It's pretty handy to just have around and small enough to stuff in a drawer. It's pretty good with a metal cutting blade but is only for thin stuff.

    I normally run $1,700 pneumatic grinders in my shop. On a whim we brought in the linked grinder. They are legit, and dirt cheap. Iíve since put a dozen of them in the shop with zero failures or issues. If youíre a weekend warrior fabricator (or pro) they might be worth your consideration.

    You should get HF grinding discs and fancy Home Depot discs and compare the performance. I wonder if that's where the money is better spent?

    DeWalt disks work way, way better than the hf stuff. Like way better. Same goes for saw blades.

    I have the harbor freight one (well 2 of them).
    I cut metal pipers, sharpen mower blades, grind down stuff.
    I think $14.99 when they go on sale. 8+ year on my old one.

    Edit: $10 with the coupon is a no brainer
