How much to the black and decker ones cost? how do they compare to a dremmel?

I've been using a big ass makita 3 inch disc, but I'd like to use something a little more practical to use.

i use the cheapest black and decker that wal-mart had, i think it cost $15-$20 it works fine for grinding rims, and looks like this



ive had it for about a year now and it has held up fine. I think it would be much better than a dremel, in terms of being able to get a good grind. It has a standard 4.5" grinding disk and works fine, just pick up a couple extra discs

i would not reccomend the cheap grinders for heavy duty grinding but you should be fine when grinding a rim.

I rode 4 hours ago, when I called you. In fact you have a 1 in 20 answer to call ratio so far.

ah, i think my grinder was like $200 from Snap-On... luckily i didnt pay a dime for it. although my technique is lacking.
And the funny part of that is "Snap On"angle grinders are just a rebadge big company grinder like a Black N Decker. $200 for the name badge. Which sucks

uh....i lived in an apartement last year and just went out side to do it, as long as its light out side no one cared to much, maybe thats cause i live in a college town and a grinder is the least of the worry for people around here
