    Hello everyone. I'm in the market for a new rotary and have narrowed it down to two.
    The "Rupes LH18ENS" or " Festool Shinex RAP 150"
    Does anyone out there have any input or suggestions on either one of these machines.

    I from the states. I've heard a lot of good things about flex and I know they are the most common here. But I feel in love with Rupees equipment the first time I tried it and I have replaced my line up with Rupes. It's time for me to upgrade my rotary, so I figured I'd see what was out there. Flex could be a possibility for me. I really just wanted some feedback or people's opinions on which one they like better

    For the record our rotary tools are not available in the US. They haven't been converted to our voltage, haven't been subject to UL approval, and can't currently be imported. Its a great tool - I've had my hands on one when over at the HQ in Milan, but just not available for US distribution yet, but maybe at some point in the future.

    I was told they would work with a plug converter. The adapter is what I was basing my decision on. I have a friend that will send me one if it'll work
