4 1/2" Grinders

Which brands and models of 4 1/2" grinders fit the lazer-cut skate? Which do you recommend? I would like one with high amps. Thanks

Ok......i went ahead and ordered a set of two Dewalt grinders Model DW818, off Ebay, for $119.95 9 amps each. Someone on another thread said they fit his so, here's hoping.

While I'm waiting on my skate components to arrive I'm designing and cutting out the sheet metal for the controller on my Shopbot. It's going to be a 9'x8'x5' 5-axis hotwire foam cutter., framed out of 80/20 aluminum and powered by timing belts and 525 in/oz steppers.
