1. you lost me with the battery operated switch. If you mean a switch from a battery drill in a 120 volt corded drill, probably not. Check the amp and volt rating on the side of the switches.

2. If the angle grinder is a 12 volt grinder then you should be able to use it. I suspect it is a 120 volt grinder and you can not use it.

You cannot use a switch from a battery powered drill on a 120 volt ac one and 12 volts will not run a 120 volt 5 amp angle grinder.
