    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've had 2 of these for a number of years and they are great. They were a common brand in automotive machine shops that did custom head porting. Not sure if they are still heavy in that area.

    I have a single speed, corded, Makita and a variable speed, 20v, cordless, DeWalt in addition to my pneumatic ones. I prefer the Makita when I need lots of power, otherwise I grab the DeWalt for the variable speed and portability. Kinda wish the Makita was variable speed too.

    The Bosch I was initially interested in has a top speed of 9000 rpm.
    Do you gentlemen use the full 20k+ rpm's I'm seeing on other brands and find those speeds a requirement?

    I use a Dremel foot pedal with my single speed Makita, works great. There used to be more of a foot pedal selection a few years ago, now Dremel may be one of the last.
