Makita GrinderWhen my old grinder decided to go ''pht...bang!" half way through a slab slaying project, I had no option but to get hold of a new one. Trawling through Axminster's selection, this little Makita looked appealing, especially as it comes with a decent diamond blade and carrying case. Although the motor is only 720w it has the all important 'i' word in the technical description...industrial! The switch is a little stiff, but there's a definite knack to it's use. The machine arrived with the usual impressive Axminster delivery speed so that instead of a relaxing day off, I'm back gnawing through 25mm paving slabs, which this little grinder does with ease. No rest for the wicked....
