The Craftsman is probably decent. I went the cheep route. Go to
www.homier.com, figure out how to get to the tool section, and search for
grinder. Somewhere in there you will see their 4" angle grinder for $5.99.
Buy a half dozen of them for less than one Craftsman. At 6 bucks, I consider
them a disposable tool.
