    Default curious: how many grinders do you have?

    I'm now up to 3 (pedestal) grinders -- thats 6 spinny wheels! -- and a belt
    grinder and I feel like I need more. how many "abrading" devices do you
    guys keep plugged in and ready to go?

    it seems crazier to change wheels than it does to add yet another grinder.

    I count five, and would happily make it six, but the lack of real estate says otherwise.

    Ummmm The belt drive bench grinder I made when I was a kid, a cheapo Enco grinder/buffer with a wire wheel, two cheapo Enco Baldor face wheel clones one with diamonds one with tw o AlO2 wheels for lathe tools finishing. I got a home made diamond lap. I got a 7" Milwaukee bayflex (a man killer) and a half dozen 4" or 5" angle grinders, each with a purpose.

    Outside of that I don't have no steenkin' grinders..

    Had 3 bench grinders, now down to two thanks to Craigs. One of mine has a buffer and wire wheel, the other has two grinding stones on it.

    Youre right, bench grinders are hard to pass up, especially when you can buy good ones for ~$10.

    15 but might have missed a couple although only 16 are in regular use.

    I have a hand-held belt sander that I turn upside down and grind stuff on.

    Also one that holds sandpaper and various stones, infinite axes of rotation, and runs on elbow grease.
