Hi all,

I'm looking for some recommendations on an electric grinder/cutoff, similar
to the 3"-4" air ones that are pretty common.  I have access to an air tool,
but the compressor is a bit small, and would need to run constantly.  Given
that I live in an apt, and will probably need to do much of this work late
in the evenings, my neighbors will probably not tolerate it.

I bought an used set of steel fender flares.  The work I need to do is to
cut/grind off the remmants of the original fender, and to cut back the
fenders that are presently on the car to match the flare.  In addition,
I plan on using the tool to cut back several rusted areas within the car
in preparation for some patch panels.

I'd like to keep the cost low, as I'll be relying more on the air tools
once I get into a house.  I'd appreciate any recommendations for brand
and model, and especially any stores (mail order is fine) that carry
them.  BTW, I am local to the Portland OR area.

Thanks in advance,
