New Fillet Weld Grinder

August 2011, Vol. 238 No. 8

Metabo Corporation, a manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers the KNSE 12-150 Fillet Weld Grinder.

The new grinder is said by the company to be ideal for finishing various metals including stainless steel. The company said the new extended nose grinder is used for finishing and polishing hard to access fillet welds typically found on handrails or inside welds on enclosed areas.

The grinder is described as a special tool with an extremely flat design that enhances the tool’s overall operation and maneuverability. Weighing just 6.6 lbs and equipped with Metabo’s Marathon motor, this new tool is designed with double gear reduction for extreme power delivery.

Standard features include a winding protection grid, auto-stop carbon brushes and thumbwheel for speed reselect. The Vario Tacho Constamatic (VTC) full-wave electronic speed control feature keeps the tool’s speed nearly constant under any load.

Safety features of the new grinder include an electronic soft-start, a toolless adjustment for the grinder’s protective cover, overload protection and a power interruption protection.

According to the company, the grinder can take a weld from raw to mirror finish using the available accessories.
