    If you outgrow the Proxxon and have money to burn, take a look at the NSK Emax Evolution. Stefan Gotteswinter calls it "stupid expensive" in a recent IG post but seems to like it for deburring.

    McMaster-Carr will sometimes quote custom or specialty tools. In my experience, their voice and email support people are very good and easy to work with.

    Ditto - my tools don't get used much and the 251c has lasted well over a year in both a small mill and small lathe. The Hangsterfer S-500 that I used previously lasted just as well. No odor or rust...

    And 99+% of those responders never get back to you. I must have had 20 or more people contact me about a 1960's oak drafting table and accessories before someone actually bothered to look at it.
