If you’re plan­ning a lot of DIY in­clud­ing metal work, an angle grinder is worth in­vest­ing in. Tradies from nearly ev­ery in­dus­try rely on these so it makes sense for a pas­sion­ate and ac­tive DIYer to make the in­vest­ment, too. Like cord­less drills, many at­tach­ments can be pur­chased for a range of jobs. They can be used for re­mov­ing paint and rust, clean­ing, pol­ish­ing and cut­ting metal. They can also be used to sand, shape and carve wood, and sharpen gar­den tools. Be aware that safe use of this tool re­quires di­rec­tion from an ex­pe­ri­enced op­er­a­tor, and full safety gear is essen­tial. •
