    For those of you that use one of these QST-30/60 air compressors, can they actually be safely run from a 20-amp 220 VAC breaker? The specs claim a 4 HP motor that draws 17 amps - that seems like too...

    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.
