Angle grinder with flap disc

    I had terrible luck grinding my blades with a bench grinder the past two years.

    I did some research on this site, and have heard good things about using a 4" or 4.5" angle grinder with a "flap" sanding disc (see this link).

    So, I'm planning to order an angle grinder and a flap disc. Is there anything else I would need or should know about?

    Thanks very much.

    I just use regular grinding discs.

    I started using the flap disk last year and they are great. Its quick and easy, also provides a good edge. I think it is the only way to go unless you can afford a Magna system.
