I’d buy the Astro Pneumatic APT-218 again, and recommend it to anyone I know. It's always something I look forward to using. Cuts like butter, very easy and accurate control. Good quality pDie Grinder and has worked well so far. It's an excellent Die Grinder for a great price.

The Dewalt DCG426B Die Grinder B076S9YBMH was our preferred Variable Speed Die Grinders. Even so, there were a few other very premium Variable Speed Die Grinders we wanted to show you here that barely missed first place.

Astro Pneumatic is an additional major maker of Die Grinders. They produce the tool next up on our lineup. Astro Pneumatic's Die Grinders are also top quality. I was ready to try the model APT-218 and I was not let down!

This Die Grinder is merely $37.99. That is a terrific deal for a quality Die Grinder like the APT-218 by Astro Pneumatic. The Astro Pneumatic APT-218 is really a solid alternative. Of you are unsure about our number one selection, I would go with this Die Grinder.

Besides the option we reviewed already, I would have a look at the Makita GD0800C and the GE 710 PLUS by Metabo. Both these tool manufactures are considered two of the leading suppliers of quality Die Grinders. Both of these two options are rated highly as well. The GD0800C received a score of 4.5/5 when compared to 4.0/5 star rating for the GE 710 PLUS by Metabo.

The GD0800C by Makita comes with several features you wont find on competing Die Grinders. For example Powerful 6. 6 AMP motor delivers 7, 000-28, 000 RPM for faster material removal. The Metabo GE 710 PLUS however, is very competitive offering Made in Germany and even World Class production facilities and techniques.

Either of these two choices make a great option if you're shopping for Variable Speed Die Grinders
