I have this Grizzly Slow Speed Grinder, which also includes a high speed smaller wheeled grinder that I am looking to trade. I only used this one time after purchasing it on Ebay. I thought I would have a lot of use for it, but I simply do not: I sharpen with waterstones and have completely migrated to that system solely. The high speed grinder is nice to have, I used it for putting a curved bevel on a plane blade. The slow speed wheel is nice for putting an edge on whatever. It works as it should and comes with everything in the picture: both tool rests (one is what comes with the grinder and the other is the upgraded one that I purchased from Grizzly – it is mounted on the slow speed wheel), and a diamond stone dresser. I hate to see it just taking up space in the garage when I know someone could put it to good use. A new one is $180.00 last I checked, it is used so I guess the value with all included would be about $150.00ish.
I need a decent shoulder plane. I am also looking for old wooden molding planes. But if you are interested, let me know what you have and we can work out something. I am a hand tool buff. Help me find this tool a new home where it will get used and not collect dust.
