small screw - but i know that cannot be helped

Love this grinder, September 1, 2022 5 stars
Pros
Easy to change the head out....super super quiet compared to other grinders....great light.
Cons
not sure i like the brush water supply - getting used to it
Other Thoughts
I have heard good and bad about this grinder. Personally I love it. If you are just starting out and can afford it - then go for it. Other less expensive grinders will do the job. It's sort of like the difference in driving a Ford Escort vs A Cadillac.

Only ARCO, September 1, 2022 5 stars
Pros
I only use ARCO wire for my work. It is by far the easiest to use. It is well tinned and keeps shiny after polishing. I use all the gauges from 14g thickest to 22g the thinnest.
Cons
No cons
Other Thoughts
I suggest buying 16 to start if you only want to buy one to try it. It can be used for most any application and can also be twisted if you need stronger wire. 14 g is good to use for hangers and 18 - 22 are best for trim. Use 24g only if you want very thin wire. (I have them all)
