    Re: Saw Blades for Angle Grinders

    I want to repeat what others have said > If you put a 4 1/2" carbide tip blade on a grinder running at 10,000 RPM, you have just created a very dangerous tool. A kick back could take an arm off, or dig in nicely to a leg!
    I wouldn't do it!

      I agree.... I tried it once and about lost my ring finger! The good Lord above had to be watching over me that day as all I got was 7 stitches and a nice bill from the doctor! A multi-tool like the Ridgid Multi-Max or other competitors would be a better option if you ask me!

        Unless you want your finger to look like this or worse.... I dont recommend it...

          Sounds like yet another absolutely perfect application for a Fein Multimaster or one of the (much, much) lower priced clones such as is available from Dremel, Rockwell, Craftsman or Harbor Freight.

          It took me a long time to pull the trigger... now I will NOT be without this tool. It finds use on nearly every project.

            How about one of those cheap electric chainsaws? How precise does this cutting need to be?

              A saw blade on a grinder is just a bad idea. I did a lot of bolt cutoffs this summer and nicked myself a few times, nothing major but a tipped blade, good luck keeping your fingers and skin! I'd suggest one of those Japanese saws if you don't want to spend the money on a multi too
