In response to considerable demand, Creusen have made for us a grinder with all the attributes so often asked for by woodturners. The major difference from other grinders is the slower speed (1,425rpm), which should prevent burning on the delicate tips of turning tools. It is fitted with two 40mm wide white stones as standard (bore size 15mm, one coarse 60G and one fine 100G) and uses double locking, fully adjustable tool rests. N.B. due to the nature of the specially wound motor, this unit does take a short while to come up to speed after being switched on. Not suitable for use with wire brushes.

Good Sharp ToolsHaving had many different grinders this one seems to stand out from the crowd with an excellent smooth and vibration free performance. I am using it in conjunction with the Sorby sharpening system and to date it has been faultless so I would suggest you forget all of these very expensive wet stones and go for this system. Although not the cheapest it is in far the best small grinders on the market.

A pleasure to useSmooth and quiet, but given the price it would need to be. I use it in combination with a Tru-grind sharpening system and my bevels are beautiful!
