    Grinders are very unforgiving if you are careless.

    Eyesight is precious!

    So it is coming UPS from Memphis! No logic in the logistics though. Memphis to Nashville, TN... Then north! Cincinnati! Then further north! Maumee, OH... So I live near Nashville NC! That is about the same distance as it is to Maumee, OH and it is just about as far from Maumee, OH to Nashville NC! 2X the distance! I mean they had quite a bit more time to get it to me... Like a week longer, this is crazy. That thing is not small and it is heavy. Go figure, I am not complaining but it is not logical.

    Seems to work fine, have fun with your new toy. Looking forward to project updates. Is this for hobby or profit or both?

    I bought it to do custom work on kitchen cabinet doors and glass. It will (hopefully) make me some money. I want some ideas beyond SS tumbler engraving/etching and model RR stuff.
