    Default Grizzley toolpost grinders any owners or opinions

    I have been looking at both of the Grizzley TP grinders rather seriously for a while, and keep coming back to them in their catalog.

    http://www.grizzly.com/products/Tool...Grinder/T27400

    http://www.grizzly.com/products/Tool-Post-Grinder/G0688

    I hove looked on youtube and searched this forum havent found anyone that has used one.

    Has any one used one or have thoughts?

    Thanks
    Dave Lawrence

    What are your plans for it?

    Been thinking myself but the cost I might build one.

    I was just at Grizzly a couple days ago. They had the display model for the Grizzly G0688 in the scratch and dent area. There wasn't anything wrong with it, and it was significantly cheaper. I don't remember the exact price, but I almost picked it up just because. If you could make the trip to the Springfield location, you could save some money.

    One of my pet peeves is grinders of any kind that have a wimpy motor. That will never be said about this one! That motor will handle any grinding job with authority!

    Is that the Grizzly? The scratch and dent one? Or something you are selling?

    Just posting a price says nothing.

    Probably the scratch and dent.
    That's the Grizzly G0688. They currently have it listed for $1095.00. That thing's pretty hefty. They list the shipping weight at 88 pounds.

    The more I look at these the more I think abut building one.

    A base to mount the motor and spindle, two pulleys, and a way to tighten the belt. The hard part is getting the height right.

    Is the center of the grinding wheel centered to the stock? above or below?

    The plans are on the Grizzly site. hahaha

    Out of those two, the choice is a no-brainer. Get the 0688.
    1- 3-phase = much better than single for precision grinding.
    2- Made in Taiwan = much better than mainland china. Much.

    No, the hard part is getting the bearings right and the vibration to a minimum.

    If you search you can find plans.
