So, I was watching YouTube (YEA, I know,,, dangerous!! )
The guy was refinishing paint on a car, and using a 7 inch variable speed polisher
He had the item # for the polisher listed,, DEWALT DWP849 7-Inch/9-Inch Variable Speed Polisher - Power Polishing Tools - Amazon.com
Then, just for grins,, I looked up the 7 inch grinder,, both are about the same amps,, the grinder seems to turn a higher speed.
So, is a polisher simply a grinder with variable speed?
Would the grinder have more rugged bearings? DEWALT D28499X 7-Inch/9-Inch 5.3-Horsepower Large Angle Grinder - Power Angle Grinders - Amazon.com
I have never owned either,, it would be nice if one tool could do both,,
Maybe the top speed of the polisher (3,500 RPM's ) is too slow to grind?
I tried comparing watts of each,, that does not make any sense,, I think the grinder watts are off by 2X,,,
Oh well,, any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated!!
