Here’s What Artists Are Saying…

I just LOVE THE GRINDER®! I have used many brands of grinders through a lot of years (I began working with art glass as a hobby in the 1970s). I used grinders in traditional ways for large and small stained glass cuts, but around 2008, I also started using them for “cold working” the edges of my thicker dammed fused artwork, prior to fire-polish them (I always referred to my grinders as the poor artist’s lap wheel). As such, grinders became a multi-faceted and important piece of studio equipment.

I have now been using THE GRINDER® in my studio. I am hooked, again! Just like the Quick-Fit Bit® transformed my grinder head replacement/swap experience, I am finding THE GRINDER® to be an incredible step up in my grinder user experience. It’s motor is a powerful and super quiet workhorse. The increased work surface is a major bonus for those of us that work with larger cuts of glass. One of the things I really appreciate is the built-in light that runs most of the length of the piece and then there’s the rubber splash guard and removable water tray. Wow do those make clean-up so much easier!

FEATURES

The LumiShield®

U.S & Foreign Patents Pending

The Lumishield is an illuminated, lens-grade eye shield which can be easily attached. This high visibility shield provides protection from minute glass particles that become airborne and casts an even amount of light across the work surface area. It is equipped with an energy efficient, super-brite LED light strip to best illuminate the project you are working on.

The Guard®

U.S & Foreign Patents Pending & Issued

The Guard is a wear resistant splash curtain designed to keep the studio clean and dry. The Guard is a wear resistant, flexible material that detaches easily for cleaning. Glass pieces of unlimited size and length can easily slide through the bristles which capture debris and return water to the reservoir.

Removable Water Tray

Unlike other grinders, the water reservoir comes equipped with a removable tray which can be easily emptied after use. With handles on each side, the lift-out tray makes cleanup simple and safe. Eliminate carrying a heavy awkward grinder to the sink or potentially spilling its contents on floors and work surfaces. Any accumulated glass grit can be cleaned out with the included scraper and disposed of or repurposed.

Water Wave Stabilizer
& Support System

U.S & Foreign Patents Pending

The uniquely designed main grid has incorporated supports and baffles on the underside to stabilize work surface and limit water movement during tray transport.

EZ-View Windows & Lift Grid

U.S & Foreign Patents Pending & Issued

It’s important to keep a sufficient flow of water to the bit head while grinding. Reservoir water level can be continuously monitored through the EZ-View Windows. The Lift Grid easily removes for addition of water or cleaning with the smartly-designed cutouts.

Everwear Bit Guard

Made from durable stainless steel, bit guard allows interchangeable usage of ¾” and 1″ grinding bit sizes.

EZ-Guide Channels

THE GRINDER is equipped with convenient channels located on each side of the working surface for attaching tools.

Mini G Elevated Work Surface
