Re: Using A Grinder on Wood
the speed of the grinder is normally to fast for sanding wood efficiently,
If you look at the speed of the "7" grinder" and a "sander/buffer" the speed of the wheel is much different, I bought a "sander polisher a few years ago to do some wood sanding and it does a good job sanding but if I would put that same disk on the grinder all I would get is burnt wood.
and if using a 4' grinder it would be worst, I have a flap sander disk for metal and I was doing some thing in the metal shop and figured the flap sander disk would work for the little job I had in the shop, and I guess it did, but was burnt and the sander disk was loaded,
