Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Sander and Grinder Reviews

We do reviews of corded grinders and sanders, including belt and orbital models and also portable and bench top tools. Our grinder reviews include corded tools from 4.5″ cut off models to larger products with 9-inch wheels. For sanders, we cover products from the small Festool Rotex sander to larger belt and orbital sanders. We turned our Pros on the Makita GA5042C 5 in. grinder and also the Bosch OS50VC 1/2-sheet orbital finishing sander. The results gave us good impressions of what these tools could do in the field. Sanders and Grinder Reviews In comparing various sanders we attempt to level the playing field by using the same consumables. For grinder reviews we use the same grinding and cutting wheels. Random orbital patterns vary, and grinders have various features like active and passive braking for better safety. We test our grinders using proven methods and time cutting and grinding tasks to see which models excel. Even drywall sanders make for interesting testing.
