  • Anyone own this?

    I have an old surface grinder that I've babied along for many years but is finally dying and a painful death it is.

    I was wondering if anyone had one of these or another machine I could pick up in the states at a reasonable price.

    Thanks,
    Rob Dee

    Yep, I have one. Now what was the name on it? I forgot.

      Your query is pretty vague, to put it mildly.

      There is no shortage of used machinery dealers in the U.S. Some areas of the country are better-supplied in that regard than others, however.

      Here in the Northeast I'd probably try Plaza Machinery www.plazamachinery.com or Brothers Machinery www.brothersmachinery.com (usual disclaimers).

                  It's not a shrader valve. It's a balance staff sitting on a standard pencil eraser. You can't buy one. It's a one of a kind, not at all cheap.

                  And prolly or "prol'y" isn't a word regardless how many infants mumble it.

                    Oh-oh. Flame alert!

                    We try to tolerate some irregular english spelling, grammar and punctuation here. Some of us ain't completed our English majors yet. Others don't care.
                    Not defending IOWOLF, he can hold his own.

                      How does that work?

                      I asked a sincere question.

                      He made several posts here and contributed nothing and you’re approaching me?

                      “Prol’yâ€‌ isn’t misspelling or misuse of English grammar, it’s nothing. He deserved what he got. Had he given a sincere response I wouldn’t have mentioned it.

                      As little as I like the word �prol’y’ I like wise guys less.

                        It is a written colloquialism. The use of such has a long and rich history in the written form of the English language, especially when used in a conversational manner. I would hazard a guess that few of us, including RobDee, always speak with perfect diction and grammatical accuracy in casual conversation.

                            Correction: Thin skin alert.

                            RobDee:
                            By your join date and post count I see you've been here a while. Long enough know the personality and quirks of some of the regulars. Maybe long enough to remember an unpleasant thread where a poster's writing abilities were criticized.

                            Perhaps I'm the one with thin skin. I just would hate to have a lurker or newby be discouraged from posting because his writing abilities might not be up to snuff.

                            Allowances and tolerance.

                              So RobDee, you mentioned the surface grinder has worn out.

                              Did you buy it new or used? How well did you like it before it wore out?

                              I'd like to hear more about this model.

                              Best,

                              PS Don't let the trolls here get you down. They are a fixture. Unavoidable, probably. They seem to be on most board, but a bit stronger here for some reason. You should derive as much entertainment observing the trolls and those who come to their defense as consternation when they're heckling. Just take it all as fun to watch, and remember, it's all free.
