    I like any quality tools but my favorite is my Bluepoint scribe. It scratches, marks, checks magnetism, and picks slivers. Also good for practical jokes. I love my Makita 5in grinders except they have cheesy cords.

    Funny I have had the same experience with grinders as you two. I have an old makita that is tough but the cord sucks and I have 2 metabos that I think are the best.

    I'll try to get some pics of my grinder on here as soon as I can. It's been beat on like no tomorow and it shows. But it still works just like they day I got it.

    you will like the metabo except for the $$$.
    but as we all know you gotta spend a bit to get a decent tool. the portacabels i got off e-bay at $50 were about the best deal on a great grinder, i have beat the poo out of them and they are still running strong.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    My father is a comercial concrete finnisher (has been for over 30 years) and he says concrete finishers love Matobo's. They are notorius for handling the dust realy well and concrete finishers beat on grinders more than anyone else I've seen.

    Default favorite tool

    Seems to me the overwhelming choice for favorite tool is the 4 1/2" grinder

    Thanks. I work on heavy equipment and alu. oil tankers so dust resistance is a must and stanger things have happened than dropping one inside a tanker so tough is good.
