I am starting to like the idea of getting mini bench grinder that has a flex shaft attachment. I currently do not have a grinder, so it might serve double duty for me. I wonder if it will be more noisy though. There are quite a variety of these out there. Here is one link on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Electr-Bench-Grinder-Polisher-Shaft/dp/B005ZUR1IO/ref=pd_sim_sbs_469_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=197GEXY1Y42Z9HJRTRPG
Harbor freight has one of these also. http://www.harborfreight.com/bench-grinder-with-flex-shaft-43533.html
The flex shaft length is 42″ for that one on Amazon & the harbor freight one is only 31″. Seems like I will loose at least 12″ in length with the bends of cable with the grinder at the side middle.
