Power performance in a small, easily controlled package
I purchased this grinder on the recommendation of several websites dealing with wood carving and metal working. I have not been disppointed in the least. I make knives, and use the grinder mostly to grind soft steel billets to the proper shape for final finishing. The trickiest task is grinding the bevel on the billet for single and double edges blades, which requires finesse and precision. This little machine is easy to control which makes the resulting grinds accurate. The angle at which the grinder is held is critical to the proper bevel, of course, and the small size lends to being able to "feel" the grind. The power is far more than adaquate for the task and the resulting pieces I've done have been more than satisfactory. I've never had even the slightest problem with this grinder...very much like all the other Bosch tools I've used in the regard.

Great product and easy to use for extended periods
I got the Bosch 1375-03H 4-1/2-in 6 Amp Small Angle Grinder 2-Pack and haven't used one of them, it's on stand-by. This grinder is ergonomically friendly and just what I needed to clean up my weld jobs. So far, the grinder has performed flawlessly and has been a pleasure to use. The switch is easily operable with my thumb. Getting two in the deal was a real bonus!
