TM reader Kyle writes:
“After receiving a new angle grinder for Christmas, I looked through the owner’s manual and discovered that Craftsman recommends that the tool be relubricated from time to time. The manual says that this should be done by Sears technicians only. What’s being lubricated, and is it possible for me to do this myself without destroying the grinder?”
We’re hoping you can shed some light on this. We have a Metabo and a DeWalt in the TM shop, but neither has required any service to date. And — maybe badly — we’ve always thought of $60 angle grinders as throw-aways. Also, does your different-brand grinder require this type of lubrication as well?
Kyle reports his grinder is the Craftsman Professional 4-1/2″, model number 900.264370 (pictured above).
