    The new Speed- Cut Grinder is built to stand up to any kind of grinding or buffing job. If you’re into making your own parts or working with metal, you’ll appreciate the importance of a sturdy, rugged grinder like the Speed-Cut. It’s built stronger than it has to be; its base assembly utilizes two heavy-duty pillow blocks with sealed, high-speed ball bearings and lube fittings supporting a large, 1-inch-diameter main shaft. Key features include positive tension and tracking controls, which eliminate the possibility of belt movement, plus an adjustable work rest that can be removed for freehand grinding.
