Yep That I can buy into.  1/4 for the vice grip, 1/4 for the work hardening bend.
The last time I did that it was 5/16" installing clutches. I threaded a die onto the machine screw instead of a nut, snapped and retreaded the burr backing it off.  They were buried so didn't need to finish them w/ an acorns.

You can't have too many angle grinders.  It's nice to have them set up with different cutting, grinding and wire wheels.
I don't understand the dremil fascination.

   Dremel...small, compact, fits in small places, but it is light duty. It has it's place.

Not to mention (but I will) that although their speeds are in the same ballpark, a 4" wire wheel or sliver stainless cutting blade can tear up an arm pretty quick.  For the inexperienced, slower and steadier may be better than the ease of cutting with an angle grinder.  Quantity also plays into it.  If i'm trimming off one 1/4" in the saloon, I'd grab my "rotary tool" (a Skill brand.)  But if I'm doing a dozen, then the angle grinder.  Same for cleaning up threads -- one -- a rotary tool,  but a dozen -- an angle grinder clamped onto a plank or my stepladder.
