Re: Surface Grinder at Auction

I have the same grinder and the weight is about 700#s plus, the top is not fastened to the base so when you go to pick it up be careful, I was lucky and paid $300 for mine with extra wheels and about 400# of scrap metal flat and round, steel and stainless, various sizes.

Re: Beginners LE 4-4-0 American

Re: Surface Grinder, Is this for real?

Yes, its for real, and if you have the 20% discount coupon, and can get to a store and pick up, you'll save even more, it does not come with a chuck. For what it's worth, that's what I paid for my Harig 6X12.
