I'm heading toward the purchase of Harbor Frieght's tool grinder -- my
first ever contact with HF took place on the past Saturday in their
Portland, Oregon store. The bench grinder appears to be just what I
want for shaping HSS lathe tools. The stock number is 46727. Has
anyone purchased this product and would also be willing to offer an
opinion with respect to whether this is a good or bad idea? I'm a
little bit concerned with the availabilty of replacement grinding
wheels -- I'm new to the concept of grinding implements that are
cylinders attached to a steel backing plate.
This is my first post to a news group since about 1999. I have been
"re-lurking" this news group for about 3- weeks -- it looks like there
is stilll a semblance of what this group was like 5 or more years ago.
Political views seem to have ravaged many perfectly good news groups
while I was away.
