    Default Corded .25" straight die grinder recommendations

    Looking for something to use when the compressor is drained and I don't feel like lighting it off again.

    Leaning toward Bosch but open to reviews.

    What is the European grinder some guys use as high speed CNC spindles? Kress maybe?

    *** I always wanted a welding stinger that looked like the north end of a south bound chicken. Often my welds look like somebody pointed the wrong end of a chicken at the joint and squeezed until something came out. Might as well look the part.

    Yes, straight is definitely better than curved

    3 phase: Will that one do at least 10,000 RPM. If so, where can I get one?

    I have been suprised how good my 49 dollar 400watt die grinder has been.

    if money is not issue my totally unscientific pick out of Bosch/Metabo/Makita/Fein would be probably Metabo or Fein

    I have used the older Milwaukee models and they seem bulletproof. The one I used was a "long reach" model

    I like my Skil grinder. How is your upper body strength?

    I have one of these - medium size Milwaukee 5194. Not cheap but can take a beating. Many sources, some cheaper.

    Edit : actually mine is a 5192 -same thing without the stupid paddle switch.
