    Default Fine pole magnetic chuck V.S. standard pole , 6 x 12 manual grinder

    Hi ,looking for some input on if I should buy what they call a standard pole magnetic chuck or a fine pole ? Is the holding power that much different for light grinding applications , seems the standard pole type are more expensive, I plan on using a fixture on it( spin & indexing type ) maybe a sign plate once in a while, along with smaller gun type parts not a production scenario, more of a hobby shop application,
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Both types will hold your fixtures just fine. The fine pole holds THIN parts much better, thin being anything less than an eight of an inch.

    distance between poles also determines how short a piece it will hold.
    Some I've seen look like they couldn't hold any thing shorter than about 1.5"
