Comments about 4-1/2 in. 7.5 Amp Small Angle Grinder:

I am a finish carpenter and use this with a flap wheel sanding disc when materials are scribed to fit. I really appreciate the thin body of this grinder, as it makes it very easy to grasp and control one-handed. However, the grinder leaves my hand a bit tingly whenever I use it for long scribes (approximately 3-5 minutes). My Metabo grinder—which is a heavier 5" model—has much less buzziness and vibration. It's still easy to control, and removes material accurately, but it's definitely buzzy. Aside from the noise level (all grinders are noisy—nature of the beast), it sounds like a good, tight grinder; it doesn't spin down with a rattling caucophony like it's about to fall apart or blow up! But watch your hands on the gear housing: it runs hot. VERY hot. I'm a bit concerned about durability in that regard, but—hey—I've got a little P-C belt sander (2-1/2x14, IIRC) that will flat out blister you in short order!

Bosch really skimped on the cord. This cord would be expected on a homeowner-level tool, but is out of place on a professional's tool. It is plasticky and stiff, with a thin pronged plug that comes unplugged too easily. This is not the quality, rubber cords that are on Milwaukee, Fein,...even DeWalt tools have decent cords. For that matter, depending on the tool, Bosch tools generally have decent cords, although they do deteriorate faster than Milwaukee's. And the cord's length is too short; it's listed as 8' in the specs, and maybe it is, but with its stiffness and inability to remain plugged into an extension cord, expect a lot of power interruptions. I'll be replacing this with at least a 10' rubber sheathed cord immediately.

Minor complaints, really, but Bosch could really have a killer grinder here if they upgraded a few details...

    Comments about 4-1/2 in. 7.5 Amp Small Angle Grinder:

    We purchased this angle grinder specifically to grind down a concrete countertop that we poured ourselves. The grinder worked great - exactly as we had hoped and was the right tool for the job. Not too heavy and easy to control. Also powerful enough to do the job quickly. Much lighter and more comfortable to hold than some of the others in the same price range.

    Great Grinder but no Spanner Wrench!!

    By Papermillman16

    from Athens, GA, United States

    Comments about Bosch 4-1/2 in. 7.5 Amp Small Angle Grinder:

    I bought this grinder to replace an old worn out grinder to work inside dryer cans on paper machines. Got it at a big blue box store and when I got it to the jobsite surprise, NO SPANNER WRENCH!! Had to improvise to get a disc attached by using a pair of needle nose pliers. After that the grinder performed flawlessly and still does. Have had the tool for about four months and works great. Really like the smaller size as I am working in some tight spaces at times. All in all great grinder but Bosch, please make sure the spanner wrenches are in the box!

    Bosch 1380 Slim

    By JBK_

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bosch 4-1/2 in. 7.5 Amp Small Angle Grinder:

    Bought yesterday, eager to do some wire brush buffing with it. Has terrible hand vibration. My hands were numb from the vibration within 2 minutes. Couldn't believe how bad it was. I am not highly sensitive to hand vibration. I use power mowers and power tools daily without any hand vibration issues. This Bosch 1380 Slim is extremely bad for hand vibration. I fortunately didn't toss the packaging so I should be able to return it.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
