Just a simple question. Does the 90° aluminum housing on the end of your DeWalt grinder get way too hot to touch? As in, "use it for a steady 5-10 minutes, and it will burn your hand if you touch it for more than a second" hot?
The temp of the handle is fine, but sometimes I want to get a little more leverage holding the grinder with both hands without blocking the airflow to the motor.
Wondering if mine needs to be serviced, or if this is just the nature of the beast. Didn't seem to get THAT hot a couple years ago when it was new.
You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.
They get pretty warm but never had one get so hot it actualy burned my hand(but then again being a career weldor i can handle hot things more than most..lol)
Wouldn't hurt to break it down and regrease the bearings in the head

Also if it's getting too too hot your not letting the tool do the work I went through my first angle grinder by feeding it to hard and it burned up got really hot then cought fire both electrically and mechanically speaking. Just ease the grinder around don't push it too hard.
