OK, so I was about to buy a Dremel 4300 with all the accessories line ups, and adapters, all Dremel branded stuff out of the Home Depot, but when I held that tiny 6" ish tool on my hand (demo unit), I really felt like an a-hole. It felt weak, and flaccid. I wish to buy a Makita cordless die grinder with a little more balls, and find a way to use some sort of adapter to use it with the tiny Dremel accesories, and also find a way to regulate the speed of the die grinder itself. Is this even possible? The Dremel doesn't look like it's gonna last, and I plan to re-mod my old Makita radio, and add more USB ports, tweeters, amps, and a higher range Bluetooth adapter using a die grinder to take care of all the molding around the plastic housing to mod it. Also, excuse my mannerism, as English is not my first language, and I still need to get used to all of these nomenclatures (Bolivian-American, please).
REQUIREMENT: needs to confine to NA electrical standards So I'm looking for a multipurpose grinder. I used a shop that had air and 99% of my regular work revolved around the grinders, torches and welders. Mainly I am missing 4.5" angle grinders and die grinders. Very easy to wield and utilize anywhere. Currently I have space and a budget for smaller things. It is hard to justify a mini air compressor I would really want a larger one (space does not permit the desired size). Thus I was poking around for a die grinder and liked the idea of an electric model. Issue seems that a right angle die grinder is rather impossible to produce? I see the inline models which are fine but seem rather cumbersome to use. Is there a reliable company that makes a 2 in 1 angle grinder that can work small with a 1/4" chuck and also support the sanding and cutting functions of 4.5" discs? I'm basically asking for a lightweight angle grinder that isnt really on market or do I really need 4 tools (1 air tank, 2 die grinders and 1 angle grinder)?
Shouldn't a die grinder with a 1/4" collet be able to grip 6mm bits? Gee whiz, the difference in diameter is only 0.014. Yet only the Dynabrade grinder advertises that it can take both (and I can't use that because it's pneumatic, not electric). I have an old 2nd hand DeWalt 887 with a pretty worn collet. I got out in the field today and ran into a wall because it wouldn't grip a 6mm bit. Surprised. I don't know whether it's because the collet is shot or that it never could even when new.
