    I have a couple of Metabos and have never had them slip, Must be a different model than I have. Or I haven't pushed hard enough yet
    I also like the tape with the lever lock, craftsman makes them too and will replace it if I break it. Same here with guards, I keep them on most except an air cut off tool with 2" disc.

      Finaly got pics. of my metabo. I'd have to say that out of all the grinders I've used it has the best guard of all. It never comes lose and in order to adust it you just turn it, no tools no levers required to adjust the guard.

          grinder in the kitchen

          I never thought of keeping a grinder in the kitchen..... it might have helped with some of my wife's earlier cooking experiments.

            kitchen grinders

            I thought I was the only one who had tools that migrated into the kitchen You know how it goes, you're working on something, get called for supper,phone,etc. and suddenly a week later you're cursing the shop goblins and stray neighbor children because you (I) can't find sh#t. Luckily for me, my wife gets peeved and stacks my cr#p on the deck. I learned early not to come in whining cuz I got told EXACTLY where my gloves, tapes, and "dirty junk" was.

                    Last week my dad, age 90, showed me a terrific tool I never knew he had, one of those pistol shaped temperature detectors, by Raytek. You point it at the part, trigger it, and get a digital readout of temperature in your choice of F or C degrees. People who do energy audits, checking heat loss in houses, use these a lot, but they sure are the deal-shenielle for welders! I'd been working on a project with some T-1 that needed preheating, so I borrowed the temp-gun. What a cool tool! Not only is it a lot handier than Tempil sticks, it lets you see the progress of the heat-up and cool-down. I was surprised how fast a big hunk of steel can cool off. I'm going to keep borrowing this temp-gun until pop gives up and lets me keep it

                          I'm pretty stoked on my 350-P, but this thread isn't about that.... so.... I would have to say my grinders and my hammers would be things I couldn't do without.
                          Far from original, but true nonetheless.

                              Hey Seattle, I was playing with some Galvalloy (Gal-Viz at Gaspro). My friend turned me on to it, was $30/per pound, which came out to 1-1/3 sticks. He said to use the acetelyne to make the metal black, then use the neutral flame to make it dissappear, that should be hot enough for the galv stick. Apparently not, but wasn't too much longer before it spread well. Used a wire brush to spread the rest of it, came out pretty cool...I use a wire wheel on a grinder, and after 5 hard passes, the galv still stayed on pretty tight...Gaspro doesn't keep temp sticks over 200 F over here, so I checked out the temp guns...under $80 (49 bucks) they only go up to 500 F. Over $85 they go up to 1,000 F......Home Depot has the General Brand for over $119, but they don't ship to Hawaii...
                              What do you guys have? and are you happy with it???
                              thanks
