The home lab can be enriched a little more with specialized tools but that give you great possibilities. One of them is the angle grinder, which allows you to work easily if shaping metals.

The grinder is potentially dangerous and should be handled with care while the router needs a certain skill to be properly utilized.

The disc can be grinding (most often) or cutting (thinner). Other types of discs allow you to work and also cut stone and brick.

In the market there are grinders of two different sizes: 115 mm disc and 230 mm disc. The first is easier to use, while the second is more difficult and heavy but has a higher power and allows you to perform bigger works.
