    ive had em all, but the best is from a yard sale

    i picked up a ryobi, dont know much about it cuz it was used but it really works great, seems to have higher rpm (seems to,) and it also feels to have more power, i was dissapointed with a milwakee i bought a few yrs. back, cord broke inside housing, warranty repair, nightmare,

      Sounds like a deal, butnot one in my area that I know of. Looked at a 10 amp today, maybe for Christmas.

          3 1/2 months out of back surgery. Just starting to get back. The drill press at the shop still has rust on the table. The up side is I can work in it now.

            Buy a Dewalt 4 1/2" 11 Amp grinder with a paddle switch if you want quality. Mine ahs been heavily abused and it still works perfect. I paid $85 for mine from Northern States Supply.
            I dont know about everybody else, but I like having a paddle switch on mine grinders

              Ditto! I used to have a B&D, then I really liked my Milwaukee. The new DeWalt's have a rubber like pad on the spindle which makes even the hardest jammed up disc easy to remove. I'll stick with it.
