Woodcraft Slow Speed Grinder/Mistake?
I went to Woodcraft yesterday and bought a slow speed grinder. I do not turn, so I could not see buying the Jet system. I also bought a pink 8″ wheel 120 grit to try to reduce heat. Also bought a diamond dresser. Took it all home and found out that the tools rests are good paper weights….maybe. Now I need a tool rest. Looked online and found the Veritas. Looks like a good tool rest.
Woodcraft Slow Speed Grinder – $95.00
Pink Wheel 120 grit – $30.00
Diamond Dresser – $15.00
Veritas Grinder Jig – $55.00
Total of $195.00 without tax. Now I ask this….for just putting a bevel on my chisels and plane blades, did I make a mistake by speeding $200 for the grinder and accessories when I could have bought the Jet Slow Speed Grinder for $300? I’m pretty sure Woodcraft would take it all back if I wanted the Jet since I just bought all that “stuff” last night. What do you guys/forestgirl think??
