    Thanks for all of the input. I already have a diamond wheel grinder for carbide and a proper bit sharpener (drill doctor) which works well enough for my needs for bits up to 3/4". Through my estate...

    That is, essentially, my question. Can I refurb this thing to the point of usefulness.

    In general though, well maintained and refurbed old machines can supersede many modern ones, especially when...

    this useful link: http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/1738/6626.pdf says that the b603 is a "Chip Breaker grinder", which I've never heard of...
  6. K.O. B603 Grinder - Help me not make a purchase mistake!

    I need some schooling on this surface grinder. I am in consideration of a grinder that has come my way. I know very little about them, and I understand some are not surface grinders, but tooling...

    I'd love to own one of these little surface plate samples (I have a larger Collins plate). I think they were given to salesman back in the day for use as paperweights.

    Welp, I went over and took a look at it today. Its a MSC 951203. I don't know much about it yet as info online is sparse. I don't know if they are any good, but it was too cute to pass up. It was...

    Random diamond tip question

    In a $5 lot of machinist tooling, I came into possession of a Rockwell hardness tester bit. It looks a lot like this (even in the original case):

    Good advice. I'm pretty anal w.r.t. cleaning. But I don't really have to worry about that with the REM oil I use.

    Good info. Yah, I don't need to actually cut on the backstroke, It'll just skim it if the cross slide stays the same. I may give it a go if turning down a wood blank or something.. should be very...

    Thanks for the info guys.. I'll give those tips a try..

    Ok thanks, I'll check out Hitachi. Baldor motors are ok though?

    I asked the seller if he wanted me to post the link here and he did not reply, so out of respect, I wont do that. However, I found...

    Thanks guys! I was expecting a much different response.

    Jim, I'm no sniper. Just a fellow looking for expert help. I didn't realize this was a hoity-toity type machinist forum, my bad. When searching on posts relevant to my inquiry, this forum came up a...

    Thanks Pavt. The SB 9a is starting to look like a good path, but I do think its still a bit on the bulky side. I also looked at Wabeco per your suggestion. The d4000 looks nice.
