Superbowl asked for small. That a reasonable request. Like desktop or workbench size. Not some 8000-10,000 pound thing.
Hey now, 'small' is in the eye of the beholder ! I figger a 2B-36 is small
(Had an 8" hobber that weighed 18,000 too. From your neck of the woods, Michigan)
There are some small ones over here, but that really doesn't work, does it ? You need a decent-sized wheel and a decent spindle to spin it on and a decently heavy base to hold the whole thing together, especially since you're trying for tenths and if you're not trying for tenths, why not just go to the bench grinder and freehand it ?
So. I'd say what he was originally asking for is not possible. Cuttermaster is about what you can get with "small".
Did see this though, our English guys could probably identify it, looks like it's about as small for t&c as you can reasonably get ? Use it as a base for a conversion ?
