Question : Why does that 3600 rpm benchgrinder come with a bucket of water on the front ,      Answer: its the wrong speed  (DUH)

Induction motors are super cheap ,  this is why grinder manufacturers use them.

The mission in creating the Tradesman machinist was to make a bench grinder available with Precision plated Superabrasive  wheels.  Grinding Lathe tools and carbide inserts (without a bucket of slimey water on the front to cool the tool)   Stone (or silicon darbide) wheels just dont grind carbide worth a darn.Wood turners have been using our 8 inch Tradesman for years, thought it was time to build one for machine shops.

Our Superabrasive wheels are balanced , always flat, essentially,  no grinding dust.
You know what shape you’re getting because the wheel does not wear down or change shape.    When you use the grinder with a DC motor you can grind heavy cuts in most anything at below 1000 rpm, Its is cooler and  it’s quiet.

if you want to put a .005 radius/chamfer on something you can hear when the tool contacts the wheel the wheel

We have a patent on low speed high feed grinding,  it is not like using other grinders.  With the Tradesman DC  grinder you can grand carbide tools or teflon  or do your nails on the same wheel. At 500 RPM with no run out its quiet and smooth and non threatening.   You can grind anything and that’s why the Tradesman was created.

We realize that the Tradesman is more expensive than traditional benchgrinders so we created a bunch of options for machine shops that make it take the place of a tool grinder for some common everyday tasks.
