It's just to see all the grinder madness, not to imply lying. No need to get defensive.

I don't think of it so much an ability as a duty. Jack does good!

Understandable, first you would have to build a table capable of holding them

I’m sure I am a contender in this game. I really have no idea how many grinders I have. I get them from the scrap yard regularly. (3 Makita’s and 1 Milwaukee last week). The majority are stashed away in boxes for someone else to use, probably after I die.

From memory I count 17 grinders that are ready to use in the shop. None are cordless.

I use the pneumatic grinders when I want a delicate touch. A quality pneumatic tool will start up with low air flow and have a nice feather control on the throttle. I like my Dotco grinders.
