    Default Gorton tool and cutter grinder

    So does anyone have one of these? the model 375 looks like it wouldn't take up too much room in my home shop. How about a review on this tool? does it require a lot of acessories to sharpen endmills,drill bits,ect.? Thanks for your comments. oscer

    Oscer,
    Mine does what I want and need. See

    Riser's Gorton 375-2 Grinder

    I have never seen any drill sharpening fixtures for one. There are much better machines but for the price this works for my needs.

    Hi fellas, I just bought a Gorton model 375-4 . It is missing the "centering arm" listed as "o" on page 5 of the manual that was supplied, didn't notice till I got it home. I'm not sure how important this is, I could probably make one if I had the critical dimentions. Also missing the "needed extras" in Jim's link. The grinder seems to be in decent shape but is in need of a good cleaning. Can someone tell me where to find the serial no.? Hoe about a sorce for the parts/ accessories? Thanks oscer
