Not really. That 5-way manifold is fed air from a 50ft ½" Flexzilla on a reel. I can just grab more slack by dragging the manifold around to where ever I am, which is not far considering my garage...

What can I say, I'm a sucker for these awesome 3M 1.5HP air grinders. Air hogs, but the power-to-weight-ratio and the power-to-size ratio is perfect for me. I fabricated custom pig-tails since I...

On the contrary, I never remove wheel guards, so they'd just as far with a steel guard in between the wheels and my hands. I feel it's a stupid thing to do [to remove guards]. But I do need to...

Thanks again for the pertinent replies. Just like clamps, I feel one can not have too many grinders with each suited for a different job.

Thanks. The actual flatness could be worse or better, because the cheapie straight edge I ordered from Amazon, as nice as it looks, is flat to ± 0.003" over it's 50" length. In any event, I'm happy...
