WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Wow……quick response……and late on a Friday.

Wow……quick response……and late on a Friday. Crazy. When does that ever happen? Have a good weekend.

Tom Williams, Utah

I’m writing to say how happy we are with our new grinder.

Hello, I’m writing to say how happy we are with our new grinder. The belt attachment alone gives us a terrific advantage with all of our small non-ferrous part deburring. The 6 inch plated cbn wheel alone is such a great advance for all of our off-hand sharpening needs. The tower arrangement as a replacement for our old Cuttermaster spindle is also a huge stop forward!

Ted Armen, MA

It works well for us on Ti6Al4V titanium to do rough detail match work during pistol finishing.

Jeff, Unit is working fine for us. We haven’t used it for tooling, just production occasionally. It works well for us on Ti6Al4V titanium to do rough detail match work during pistol finishing. Works well sharpening tungsten for TIG welding also…. Probably need to buy another unit for some soft diamond wheels (FLEXWHEEL – SEE PHOTO) we have.

Though you have never been in the golf club making business, you can’t say that now!

I am glad I could find you & your products by searching the web. Although I believe that your products are more precision orientated than required for my needs, I am sure the high integrity of your equipment will be much appreciated. Thank you for going the extra mile to think outside the box and relate to your customers needs. Though you have never been in the golf club making business, you can’t say that now! This unit will be part of the club making process for as long as I am building clubs. It was a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to receiving “Steve’s Cool Grinder” Thanks for making it a reality

Steve Persing , WA

The 10” wheel fit the shaft line-to –line (light press) runout less than .0005.wow thanks

Hey Jeff I got your awesome machine set up and on the roller stand I built for it. The 10” wheel fit the shaft line-to –line (light press) runout less than .0005.wow thanks The 8” wheel 6oo grit had some axial wobble but I found the problem was with the “precision washer between the wheel and the retaining ring. The opposite faces were out of parallel a full one thousandth of an inch. When I fixed it on the lathe and tuned the rotation phase angle to the best case the runout went to virtually zip. The tool rests are just beautiful in both design and execution. The speed control is so satisfying. I’ll send pictures later. Thanks for doing what you do!!

Scott R, Colorado

We went from 45 minutes on the surface grinder to 45 seconds on the cutter.

Hi Brad, we are very happy with the cutter. We went from 45 minutes on the surface grinder to 45 seconds on the cutter. We have well over a hundred cuts with the original wheel. Thank you Andrew Andrew McNickle

I just received my 80 grit and 1000 grit this week.

Hi Jeff, At this point I have nothing but good things to say about the CBN wheels. I just received my 80 grit and 1000 grit this week.

Pat, Australia

I can report that my wood turning experience has improved immensely.

Brad, I wanted (as promised) to get back to you with my review of the grinder. Since starting to use your system along with my various one way sharpening jigs I can report that my wood turning experience has improved immensely. Over the past number of months I have completed some 150 pieces on my lathe thanks to this grinding system. My tools no longer show any signs of over heating, the edges are true and the speed at which a sharp edge is developed is far faster than using a stone. I have never worked with a grinder as smooth running a quiet as yours, in fact it is so quiet I have had to post a note beside it to ensure I have shut it off. I can honestly say that if anyone is serious about sharp tools this system far exceeds anything I have used to date.

Murray Ritchie, Ontario, Canada

Much better than either my Baldor or Tormek.

As of late I have been doing a lot of sharpening and I am delighted to say that the Tradesman bench grinder is an absolute delight to use. Much better than either my Baldor or Tormek. It is a fine machine, even for amateurs like me. Congratulations.

Mike,

The quality is superior to any system I could find.

I did a lot of research before purchasing your system and it is a phenomenal unit and works as advertised. A lot more expensive than I had planned on but I have no regrets. The quality is superior to any system I could find. thanks again

Mark Snodgrass, NV

I particularly like the Tradesman for sharpening the cutters for my coring system.

Yes, Mr. Bateman, I have a Tradesman grinder. It is one of my best purchases – ever. I put a One Way Wolverine kit with it. I particularly like the Tradesman for sharpening the cutters for my coring system. It’s great how my wife spoils me. Life is as good as it can get for two retired educators in the state (Oklahoma)

Jim Simmons, Oklahoma

I’m very happy with my purchase and I really appreciate all your help getting everything right.

Jeff, Jim Madison here in Orlando, just wanted to let you know I’m very happy with my purchase and I really appreciate all your help getting everything right. My Tradesman DC with reverse is without a doubt a quality product, it is well designed and I like the quiet, smooth running motor and variable speed. It is everything I was looking for. Thank you again. All the best, Jim Madison

Jim Madisson, Florida

You guys make a really fantastic grinder!

James Blaise

Best grinder I have ever been near.

George Breiwa, WI

Everything seems to be perfectly prepared.

Everything seems to be perfectly prepared. I have been buying a lot of things in the meantime, but it seems like this is the first time I was satisfied. I will introduce your products to people around me in the future

a better-than-new edge on fabric shears

Best scissor sharpener, the Tradesman 8 with CBN plated wheels and scissor sharpening jig puts a better-than-new edge on fabric shears

Don, Raley Colony, AB

well worth the extra money for the variable speed and the out of the box near-zero runout on the CBN wheel.

My initial answer would have been “no” cause I have everything darn tool and accessory already and then some. I’m the Tim Allen of woodturning. Ah ah ah ahhhhh, However, a few weeks ago I added the Jamison Bowl gouge to my weapon collection and was happy about it. I was influenced by one of our administrator’s comments about it. It performs outstandingly. Also about a year ago, I made the plunge to the Tradesman Grinder as a result of a discussion here. I have both belt and CBN. The best purchase(woodturning) I have made since 2000 when I bought my 2436 and well worth the extra money for the variable speed and the out of the box near-zero runout on the CBN wheel. Customer service is just extraordinary. Yeah, so coming to this site is dangerous to your financial health. However, when I go into my shop and see my Oneway and Tradesman the feeling of joy that I get money cant buy!

Dennis Weiner

I really would like to thank you

I really would like to thank you and your staff for the great service you provided on the sale and adjustments to my grinder-sander. Year or so latter the CBN still has no run out. I sang your praises this morning in a thread on the AAW forum. I feel strongly about your company, your services and products. https://www.aawforum.org/community/index.php?threads/this-forum-is-getting-expensive-poll.16825/ In addition, I displayed the grinder in a woodturning club zoom demonstration a few months ago. It was recorded and a copy resides on You Tube. You may be interested in viewing some of the jigs I made up. https://youtu.be/3lb4CuD_imk The tradesman and it’s homemade jigs begin 1 hr and 9 minutes into my demonstration on how woodturners can use aluminum extrusions in the woodturning workshop using only woodworking tools. Thanks again, Dennis Weiner

Everytime I walk in my shop and see that damn thing I grin. I really do.

This Tradesman Edge is the best damn grinder out there man. Everytime I walk in my shop and see that damn thing I grin. I really do. I’m grinding the hell outta stuff because I can. This thing will absolutely mow down some metal. Incredible job guys. Worth every penny.

The best grinder I have ever used.

I can confidently say it is the most versatile, functional, and accurate grinder I have ever been around.

After looking at the Tradesman grinders for years, I finally decided to purchase one. I made the call to Jeff Toycen who patiently answered all my questions. He put together a package for me and it was delivered the same week. I ended up with an Edge 810, 2×48 belt, and 8” CBN on the wheel side. My primary purpose for this grinder was for sharpening chisels/irons/knives. I have been fortunate enough to have owned numerous tools over the last 20 years, including Baldor high and slow speed grinders, as well as 2 Tormek machines. I knew exactly what I wanted and had high hopes that this machine would deliver it all in a single package. After receiving the Edge 810, I can confidently say it is the most versatile, functional, and accurate grinder I have ever been around. I can hollow grind edge tools extremely fast and accurately with the CBN wheel, swap to a knife with a Tormek jig on the belt side with no change, and all with variable speed and reverse. The options are endless, thank you Jeff, I am so pleased with this purchase!

The grinder is really wonderful,like in my dreams!!!!

The grinder is really wonderful, like in my dreams!!!! Thank you very much and congratulation for your creation. I will can sharpening my tools really fine to make beautiful violin!(I am violinmaker) Thanks again

can tell you this. I’ve been doing this for 33 years.

can tell you this. I’ve been doing this for 33 years. I have sharpened over an estimated 20,000 pairs of scissors myself. Both micro I surgical scissors neurological and cardiac microscissors along with every other kind a scissor you can dream up. What I noticed using your machine is that it’s a completely new experience. The way I deal with the instrument on the platinum is completely different. The way that the machine cuts is different than standard grinders. The amount of control that I was starting to learn to be able to gain was wild. So I can tell you Dash the machine is different enough that it will take me a little getting used to and then I will have a much better product. I did notice that the scissors are coming out about twice as sharp as they had been from my previous set up. Thank you so much Jeff.

I love it. It’s a miracle I made it this far without the Tradesman tool grinder.

I love it. It’s a miracle I made it this far without the Tradesman tool grinder. The wheels run precise and true and combined with the variable speed the Tradesman is great for fabricating small tools without them overheating. Also it’s very quiet compared to a regular grinder.

Jeff, The Cuttermaster wheel you sent is doing great.

Jeff, The Cuttermaster wheel you sent is doing great. I installed it on 7-23-12 on one of the machines I cut pilots with and I noticed the excellent balance which I had missed using other wheels. Even right now I’m at a lower cost on this wheel compared to the replated I had switched to. With the longer life of your wheels they quickly become better value and do a better job. All I had gotten from you over the years were the best wheels on the planet. Thanks again with all your help, it’s hard to find such good customer service these days.

The machines are working out great

The machines are working out great. As always, so much repair work going on here it’s slow to get into the Cuttermasters as much as I’d like but it is easy to see how using them has already freed up a lot of time otherwise lost to set-ups on my old Cinncinnatti. Very well designed and executed little machines; convenient, fast and precise results every time, all in a small shop area footprint.

I just want to tell you how great your Tradesman grinder is

I just want to tell you how great your Tradesman grinder is. I have the Tormek t7, the work sharp system and a conventional grinder with silicon carbide wheels. I don’t use any of them any more and will try and sell all three. The tradesman with CBN wheels running at a medium speed meets all my sharping needs in seconds with little dust, heat and most importantly no vibration, allowing me to keep the tool in contact with the wheel at all times.

Andy

I really love this thing

Hi Jeff, At long last, I finally got a post up about the Tradesman. I really love this thing — thanks for making it, and thanks for all of your help.
