I have had really good luck with these. They have tons of power and seem really well built..and if you shop around they can be had for under $100. I have not tired their mini die grinders but I probably will soon. I did just kill the gears in the head of one of my mini IR angle die grinders so that does not make me happy with IR right now

I like newer IR tools as well, but I don't use them every day either. Are they as skookum as the old school tools? No, not quite, but they're a far cry from HF IMHO.
I have never killed a HF die grinder but I have killed an IR

I bought some St. Louis pneumatic grinders off Amazon, supposedly 95% parts sourced/made in USA. I bought a straight shaft and 90*, the straight is a pretty torquey sumbitch, 90* is about on par for everything I've used.

I dug an old rubber coated angle die grinder from the trash and stuck $5 HF guts in it. They're all interchangable inside.
Hand doesn't get froze to it, and it's got a better muffler. Stuck some scotch brite in the exhaust and it's even quieter.

Straight die grinders, I like the rear exhaust ones. Front exhaust just blows the needles everywhere, rear exhaust they follow their own momentum. Use a vacuum at the same time on the other end of what you're grindering inside and they stay pretty contained.
