You can use perforated steel plumber's tape but it's about 20 gauge. You can try Peakes for perforated steel straps and angles. I have bought 3 foot lengths there. They cut with shears.

It might be time to take X_Factor's recommendation and start fabricating.

Use a scrap piece of purlin or get a flat bracket from the hardware. Either way, you will probably need to drill some holes.

I've use galvanized steel sheets for relay brackets, stand-off brackets and heat shields for years. It takes a little work. Use a piece of card stock to approximate what you need and use that to guide you.

Where can i get a portable air compressor for car tyres? Ideally for the car cigarette lighter but AC power is fine.

Preferably in south.

Channellock makes excellent tools. In fact, the Klein strippers shown above are probably made by Channellock. I have had a couple pairs of them for years.

Also Peakes, MEPCO, SSL, Anands, Ramlagans, and Modern. They all carry them depending on terminal size and type.

If you aren't sure, walk in with a terminal so that you can match a tool to it.

Locally I've seen 4-1/2" DeWalt with a paddle switch and Stanley with a trigger.

I can't speak for tool-less adjustment. I typically tighten the guard collar to the point that it's snug and spin it around as necessary.

I have 5 4.5" angle grinders, 1 cordless dewalt, 2 dewalts and 2 mexican makitas($350/pillai tools) which also work good.

None of these have tool-less guard adjustment.
The cordless dewalt does but it is not very secure.

the dewalt dw402 is a very good grinder with paddle switch whilst the makitas have the thumb push switch which often sticks locked so I only have those on grinding discs.

My Milwaukee and Dewalt 4.5 paddle are beasts, almost lost a toe with one. Both bought from Baghwansingh, the Milwaukee is from when they had good heavy duty stuff. The Dewalt was the 2 from $1000 bought with a friend, works ok for my needs.

But side note Ted, don't you have cordless tools already?, since you have the batteries and charger why not buy a bare cordless grinder.

There is a lot of info online about WEN. The first soldering gun that I ever used was an old WEN.

Like other zombie brands, I read that some company bought the name and starting selling entry level tools. They're supposed to be good for the price that you pay.

general opinions online from ppl who use/own WEN say they make products with a much lower price point that appear similar to well know brands but its more for home/hobby/light duty use , kinda like skil\black&decker\harbor freight etc econo level ...

It’s a rebrand of Chinese stuff
Some of them highly rated
I bought an oscillating drum sander from them
Still in the box though but half the price and similar internals to the big names

I have a wen drill press, a wen 1” belt sander and an oscillating spindle sander. Both sanders work fine. Drill Press has a bit of runout. The prices are good compared to same specs of other brands.

With regards to control of the grinder, a high powered grinder will kick with a lot of force compared to a cheaper less powerful one especially when using a cutting disc. A low power unit will slow and stall if pressed on, a high power will kick violently and that's where the danger is.

just the other day i pulled out a piece of metal from my eye.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

the thought of the Milwaukee grinder never occurred to me rly, i played around with one of the DeWalt cordless and its a weaksauce, okay for the one or two cuts, not for any major fab work. the Milwaukee good? saw like 100USD

Plenty people (mihself included) does "take a chance" running equipment without guards, not wearing safety equipment etc. because it is usually more convenient...until something happens that is.

As they say, yuh does have to "burn to learn".
