    Default Abwood surface grinder info needed

    I am after any info on the Abwood 5025 surface grinder as i am looking at purchasing one. Has anyone out there got one?
    If so what do you like/dislike. Is the bed on plain slideways or ball configuration?
    Has anyone got a manual?
    Info seems hard to come by on these, although I expect the quality should be reasonably high as its a late 80's UK built machine
    Thanks.

    The only " Abwood " surface grinder I ever worked on was a ring grinder. They seemed to specialise in this type of machine, especially after " Churchill ", Snow " and " Lund " who also made ring grinders closed down. I know they also made pretty good machine vices. The quality of the machine I worked on was pretty good.

    Regards Tyrone.
