The Fein Paddle Switch Angle Grinder…Cut Tile Like Butter

Cutting tile with wet saws can be tiresome. So we always have an angle grinder on hand for small or irregular cuts.

This makes setting tile much faster and easier.

Fein’s paddle switch angle grinder is a great option.

You’ll see why.

Let’s dive in!


The Fein Paddle Switch Angle Grinder

Paddle switch grinders are great because they allow the user to firmly grip the tool – which is super important when the blade spins at 12,500 RPM!!

Such high RPM literally makes the grinder rotate your hand if not careful.

But this high speed is totally necessary to cut tile and metal.

Fein’s WSG7 grinder has served us well, we haven’t broken one yet.

The two complaints we had were making it have a paddle switch and electronic brake.

Fein came out with the paddle switch option and we like this along with the capacity to rotate the gear box in 90 degree increments. Thus, you can customize the angle grinder to your needs.
