Metabo does have an 11,000 RPM variable speed 5" but I don't see the advantage of the extra 1/4" reach, plus I already have tons of 4.5" consumables.
One thing for certain is that I don't want a "rat tail". Too bulky.

The flat head could be really handy but a little pricey. Either way this is coming out of my CL fund. I'm one of those that keeps envelopes for various things.

Still have a paintball gun, low profile roller fairlead and an old metal dollhouse yet to make their contributions.

Thanks all for the input.
