Speaking of grinders....

Postby Dolores » Mon Dec 08, 2003 1:24 pm

Does anyone have/use/own an 8" disc mini-grinder (or any other for that matter) from His glass works? Are you satisfied with its performance and the customer service there? I'm looking to upgrade from my Inland disc unit (only 5", too small to do bracelet bars without falling off the edge!). I have been following the thread on Diamond Max, but do believe that a 6" disc is still not large enough to accommodate the bracelet problem. I mainly bevel and gem cut small jewelry pieces and the like and am quickly wearing out my Inland discs in the process. Any suggestions are appreciated. I need more grinder power...power...power :twisted:

S.W.Enterprises had a wonderful 12 inch machine with central water feed and magnetic disks. You could use the entire surface as there was no central post. Expensive. Kevin
