A coated spindle housing make this heavy duty, Milwaukee® Straight Grinder comfortable to hold on to while delivering a full 12 A of power and 7000 rpm. This tool can accept up to 5 in resinoid bond wheels. Wire brushes can also be attached for cleaning rust from work surfaces as well as buffing wheels for polishing surfaces. An impact absorbing tool rest is provided so that the tool can be set down safely as the wheel coasts to a stop. The spindle is 5/8 in for use with industry standard accessories for the rated diameter capacity.
