Q:I am looking for an angle grinder for cutting house numbers in stone, and am considering model w1080rt5. Does this angle grinder have soft start, adjustable side handle and anti-vibration, and would you recommend this model for what I want to use it for? If not, could you please recommend several that would? I want to stay with a 5" and want a variable speed, and think that 0 - 5,000 rpms would be best, but possibly the 5 - 10,000 rpms would work as well. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
A:Model w1080rt5 has a "moderate" start mode with no anti vibration. The handle is not adjustable. With the correct grinding wheels, yes, this could be used to cut stone.
Q:This grinder is made in Germany.??
