Wouldn't it be nice to have a variable trigger angle grinder? I think Ryobi makes one, or at least one with differing speeds. Sometimes they're a little too fast.
My Rodac grinder is so old I cant remember being without it or where I got it.it doesnt have a lot of torque any more and it does suck up some air but I have more than enough to keep it going and it still works so its still in my box and every once in a while I need it for something mostly grinding heavy paint... I'd compare it to a national detroit They last forever and can take a lot of abuse but suck a lot of air.
I bought a 4.5" air side grinder from HF that is pretty darn nice for the price and you can control the speed, its great for grinding welds,I like it a lot better than my electric side grinders.
