    1/ 4" trimmer router question

    Workshop cleaning.

    Bought an "toolzone Ash Vac" the other day for my small workshop and well pleased with it so far. Its not to large (mines 15 litres), its bagless, easy to empty, and has good suction; ideal for sawdust, wood shavings and small offcuts from mitre saw ect.

    Angle grinder stand to make radial arm (horizontal) cuts

    Eventually ended up buying a 750w wet tile cutter and its cutting like a knife through butter, well pleased. Angle grinders can be too noisy and dusty, it was either buy a 9" angle grinder or the tile cutter.

    Bench grinder reccomendation

    Thanks for the responses, the only issues with making one or buying one is that I dont want to cut a hole in my bench to mount it on, there are ways round that I know. Long story short a grinder with one already attached would be ideal. Im mostly gonna be sharpening mower blades, spade bits...
