Default HArbour Freight Angle Grinder

Ive had such good use out of this tool I MUST pass it on! I completed a GE Apprentice Machinist stint in the 70s so when my neighbor bulged the barrel of his shotgun he came to me for advice rather than take it to a gunsmith. We went to HF and picked up this angle grinder for $15 with some cut off wheels. In a jiffy we cut the bulged section off and finished cleaning up the end of the barrel with a bench belt sander. Now...the on /off switch didnt stay on and it took a lot of force to hold it in the ON position to use it. He said "You can have it." which was fine with me.

Ive since used it to sharpen about a dozen lawn mower blades and cut off the bars on my basement window so they dont block the dryer vent. I saw them on sale for $5 on the 4th of July this past week and you can get 20% off with a coupon anytime. I got mine for free but for $5 if you dont have one theyre pretty handy to have.

I fixed the defective switch by taking it apart and hardwiring it on when you plug it it. I should have taken it back right away and got another one but didnt think of it.
