The smallest collet I have for the Foredom is a 1/4" so I don't use it too much.

Some serious die-grinders ya' have there Patch. I'd need a MUCH bigger compressor and probably a surge tank too.

You do wear hearing protection don't you?...those air motors are screamers.

But they run cool.  There are electric tools like that but they are heavier and run much hotter requiring stopping to let them cool.

Never thought about the sound being too much. I bought an oil less compressor to keep in the motor home in 2000 and it will drown out a freight train. So it never comes out of the basement storage in the camper.

  I don't think I ever run the air tools wide open. A used compressor with the motor and pump separate with a belt in between with about a 20 gallon tank is always the best bargain. Even with a hole in the tank for those can be welded up...

   Also if a person has a tank compressor he needs to have a water trap in the line as close to the tools being used as possible. All the nail guns and grinders will last longer with one in line.
