When I did my bathroom remodel last summer I found that car tools made some great house tools. I ran an air hose over to the house and used my die grinder with a cut off disc a lot. My Matco hot rod die grinder with the swivel head on it was a life saver!

Then when I leveled my floor I used my 8" orbital ND 900. The friggin paint dept would have accepted that floor for primer it was so flat! LOL
