The following tool is for sale at the Harbor. Item No. 46727 (Sorry but I am failing at pasting a workable hyperlink to the item. When I try to click my own pasted hyperlink, it comes back "item not found". Advice appreciated).This is for sale at my local store for $ 134.99 and we pay no taxes in Oregon!!
Anyway, anybody have any scoop on this item? Mainly, will I be able to replace one or both wheels with a diamond wheel? Do diamond wheels come in a 'bolt-on' configuration with a 1-1/4 inch hole?
BTW, while I own a serious 3hp 3phase pedestal grinder, I have purchased (years ago) an inexpensive ($29) bench grinder from harbor freight and dedicated it (obviate contamination) to sharpening my tungsten tig welding tips. Very happy with this machine. No perceivable run-out. I can shut the grinder off, go take a 3 minute crap, and when I come back it still hasn't finished spinning. I'm sure quality varies sample to sample.
Any advice on the above would be appreciated. There are budget considerations, and, so far I haven't needed one of these tool grinders. Maybe I don't need one now, but tools ownership is fun!!
