A die grinder is a handheld power tool that runs spindle-mounted abrasives such as coated abrasives or nonwoven surface conditioning abrasives. Typical coated abrasive products that you can run on a die grinder include cartridge rolls for reaching tight corners and crevices, cross pads for sanding small internal diameters, and evenrun bands and flap wheels for sanding and polishing contours. Scotch-Brite™ surface conditioning products typically used include radial bristle discs, combination wheels, and cross buffs for removing rust and debris from internal diameters of small cylinders. These are just a few of a multitude of products that can be run on a die grinder.
