This grinder has the biggest tool-rest platforms of all the grinders, and they were flat. Angle adjustments were easy to make via a thumbscrew, but detents in the mechanism had to be overridden by a washer spacer. Once set, the platforms held their settings. But depth adjustments, which are needed whenever the angle is changed, require a wrench, which is a hassle. The grinder was the only one in the group that did not experience severe runout, so no flange adjustment was needed. But the machine’s brass wire wheel is essentially useless for woodworkers and caused a lot of vibration. The work light comes in handy.
