Ace has black & decker 4.5 angle grinders on sale for 20.00 if your a member picked up 1 going to test it out this weekend and buy a few more if it's good. I always have the wrong disk on the angle grinder when I pick it up to use it. Would like to have about 4 of them. I'm lazy.

I agree. I have about 5 angle grinders because I hate to change the wheels on them. And although I still have my original US-made Milwaukee (made with reserve smoke) I usually buy the cheap ones now. They get a lot lighter use, since I have so many.

One thing to watch for is if you have thread-on accessories, like a wire wheel, different models, like I have, may have different threads. But if your several grinders are all the same it won't matter, or, as long as you have one that fits the wire-wheel threads and you leave it on there, no problem either.

I really enjoy having 3 grinders makes projects go a lot faster not having to change disc. One to cut, One with flap disc to remove rust and paint and one with grinding wheel to grind down welds. The B&D are working great so far.
