Angle-grinder maintenance question

joel_bcMay 3, 2006

Hi. I'm in a semi-isolated situation and don't know who to ask about this, locally.

I just opened up my Bosch angle grinder the other day to check the brushes. While doing that, I noticed there was grease around the bearing on the power shaft, but no grease (and no trace of any) on the gears that send the torque through the 90-degree bend. Should I grease these gears?

I gather you guys don't service your own grinders?

Do you just burn 'em out (LOL), or take them to somebody every so often??

I'd grease the gears. Why not?

I've never considered taking one apart and greasing it.
I guess it couldn't hurt.
Mite want to use high temperature wheel bearing grease.

Look in the owners manual.
