Anthony Bailey tries out this handy grinding and engraving tool from Einhell
The BT-MG 135/1 is for much more than just grinding and engraving work. It comes in a handy plastic case with a handle. The top has two clear flip-up lids, underneath which are no less than 189 attachments including: four collets, six drills, six 'frasers', wire cup brush, 12 abrasive wheels, 14 abrasive drums plus spare abrasive, abrasive discs, polishing heads - you get the idea - plenty of choices, including replacements. There is enough to keep you going for ages and Einhell sell them separately too!
In the base of the case is the power unit, which is hand-held but can be adapted to take the flexible drive and telescopic hanging stand that comes with the kit. The stand clamp will fit on a thick bench surface and can be screwed in place if you wish.
The power unit has variable speeds, a spindle lock for changing bits and a flick on-off switch. The power rating is 135W delivered at a maximum 32,000rpm and seems capable of doing whatever is asked of it.
