TURBO Plane FAQs and Troubleshooting

The TURBO Plane Blade fits most 4″ (100mm) and 4 1/2″ (115mm) angle grinders. However, when choosing an angle grinder to suit the blade, you should look for the following features:

  • A metal guard that can be rotated and fixed to 45 degrees
  • An auxiliary handle
  • The on/off switch positioned on the top or side
  • At least 550 Watts power

Yes, as long as the grinder is powerful enough and runs at a speed of 9000RPM or higher.

YES! Using the blade on the flat, and working the machine with two hands ensures the best visibility for the operator and also means that hands are kept well away from the work area.

The TURBO Plan should run smooth and be easy to control. A lot of effort goes into makings sure it is balanced and all the tolerances are correct for the application.

If it feels unbalanced or does not perform smoothly, it is an indication that something is wrong.


Possible cause: Incorrect fitting which may cause it to be unbalanced.

Solution: Please see fitting instructions here.

Alternatively, try it on another angle grinder.

Sharpening the TURBO Plane is easy.

Use a small flat diamond file, such as a fine diamond EZE Lap file, and work ACROSS the face of the tooth. This does two things, cleans the front of the tooth, and re-dresses the cutting edge.

The amount of sharpening required will vary depending on the wear on the teeth, but the aim should be to have all teeth with the same degree of edge finish.

WARNING: Disconnect the power before attempting to sharpen the TURBO Plane’s teeth
