Morning folks, a question out there for experienced angle grinder users, especially those that use one for carving out chair seats or other wood items -
I have been looking at the new Ridgid Slim Grip angle grinder and considering a purchase next month. I have it in my head that I will start making some chairs for my kitchen table and have been looking at grinders for carving out the seats.
I have used angle grinders before, but find them somewhat bulky to hold at times. I like the handle on this one and it feels comfortable in the hands but am curious if there are any shortcomings in the design I should be aware of. It has a 7 amp motor, which should be more than enough for wood carving, and the design seems like it would be much easier to control, but would like some perspective out there from folks who routinely use a grinder.
Any input would be greatly appreciated,
