Electric cutoff tool recommendation?

I grind my welds with a cutoff tool. I'm between compressors and want to get back on my project which involves grinding welds in tight places at times.
Anyone use an electric that uses 3 inch cutoff blade? Anything better than this?

Thanks,

Keith

I have a Craftsman Electric Die grinder. It works well with 1/4" shank carbide cutters or the cutoff wheel adapter. I'll use this most of the time to save wear and tear on the compressor...

I also use an air-powered die grinder alot, but, after watching one of the "American Chopper" show, I noticed Paulie using a 4 1/2" Dewalt with a cutoff blade. I tried it with my Milwaukee 4 1/2", and it actually works quite well-the blades last longer, and, if you have larger hands you can control the cuts.

die grinder with 3m disks-another option

I have used my die grinder with an adapter for 3m or rollock disks - similar to the ones everyone uses to remove gaskets with- just get lower grit ones for grinding in real tight places. It doesn't work as well as a grinder;the disks wear out faster; but it is an option.

Hey Thanks everybody. I noticed a die grinder at Harbor frieght..seems to have the revs(25000). Maybe I'll give that a try.

Window-I noticed the electrics on American Chopper also..I emailed the show..No response. When you say 4-1/2 DeWalt..what do you mean..Is that a die grinder?

Thanks,

Keith
