Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay so far, not made in USA. The tool has worked well so far but it is made in China and not the United States as the Home Depot and Dewalt websites state. I am not a heavy user for this tool so it should be fine but the websites should be updated.

Specs state No Load Speed=25,000RPM and Use Wheels RPM Above=25,000. What does this mean "Use Wheels RPM Above"? Does this mean only wheels rated for > 25,000? I am new to grinding so I am unsure what this even means. Can someone explain? https://www.dewalt.com/products/power-tools/grinders/die-and-straight-grinders/112-40mm-die-grinder/dwe4887
Asked by: Jeff
All this means is that the grinder will run at 25,000 RPM's without a load or not touching any surface. Grinding wheels rated under 25,000 RPM's may shatter at that RPM. So for safety sake. only use the better grinding wheels.

are the grinding attachments included?
Asked by: Doyne
The attachments for this die grinder are NOT ! included with the purchase. But the attachments can be purchased fairly cheap online, just lookup die grinder- 1/4"shaft diameter mounted points & tips. you can also use 1/8" tips, but you will have to purchase a reducing collet.

Is this grinder electric or cordless? The description states both.

Asked by: Dredd
This particular version has a cord. The description may be too general.
