HA! You're a funny guy. If there is something wrong with the blade you're gonna have to talk to whomever had it before me. I took that one off and used mine the entire time.

Whattsa matter with it? Is it bent in half or something?

from the pic Jeff sent me it's definitely bent.
looks like it was dropped tip down on the blade.
he said it was in the "on" position too.

Was not like that when it went onna Brown Truck, guys. We can fault the packaging or the packager (moi), but it woulda needed some serious abuse for that to happen.

We do know ol' Brown Truck is quite well equipped for some of that there serious abuse, though, eh?

I'm sure Jeffy got hisownself a blade for to pewt on there, though.

Can't say, Jeff. Don't believe I left it on, but wouldn't be the first dumb thing I've ever done.

But I don't never plug in such a tools without I look at the switch, anyway. Them and belt sanders, eh?

Can say for sure the blade was not bent when I got it from Roger, nor when it went inna box. Looks like it's gonna be your responsibility to kill your Brown Truck man, eh?

Well, Jeff, now that you've had that grinder for a couple years, and we've heard no report from you at all, you ready to let someone else have a turn?

Not that anyone else has axed lately.

But a report would still be in order, don'tcha reckon? How else is Makita Mark gonna know what do people think about his tools, eh?

I recieved one of the cordless grinders CX is talking about for christmas (along with a Makita cordless sawzall) , only been used cutting rusted 3/8 bolts/nuts so far, very nice tool though. I have been looking for a hard case for it. Looking around online I cannot find one single website in the U.S that sells the case (tons of em in the U.K and such). I am open to suggestions on where I might be able to get a case to fit the grinder.
