The Tradesman Machinist is compatible with our wide range of attachments to simplify common machine shop necessities such as neck reduction, set screw flats and carbide cut off. Visit our Tradesman Machinist Page to see a list of wheels and accessories.
The Tradesman machinist, with precision plated Superabrasive wheels, is different. With our patented DC Drive system which is powerful even at low speed with super-abrasive wheels, you can grind anything with practically no heat. Visit our Grinding Wheels page for more wheel options.
The flat, always sharp wheels (great for shaping tools), quiet, powerful, variable speed and no bucket of water on the front. The Tradesman 8 Inch has been the woodturner’s favorite for a few years now so we thought it was time to build one for machine shops.
Our Superabrasive wheels are balanced and always flat, so no extra grinding dust. When you use our grinder with it’s DC motor you find you can grind heavy cuts at below 1000 rpm keeping the process cool and quiet. If you want to put a .005 radius/chamfer on something, you can hear when the tool contacts the wheel.
We have a patent on low speed high feed grinding with the Tradesman. It is not like using other grinders. Period. With the Tradesman DC Grinder you can grind carbide tools or Teflon on the same wheel because at 500 RPM, with no run out, there’s nothing threatening about it.
