    It's basically two grinders in one - vertical and horizontal. I have it and love it, to tell the truth. It was a bit pricier then from KMG and Bader, but I use it for knives, handles and sayas, so it wasn't difficult for me to justify the purchase.

    Travis keeps coming with modifications and new attachments. Latest is a surface grinding attachment. I don't think I will be buying it, but it looks very impressive.

    I just got a flyer in my order from Tru-Grit that is for a new slick grinder design by Hardcore called the Maximizer. Looks like a mix-mash of few grinders all put together - goes vertical and horizontal and offers small wheel changeup from 1/4" - 2 7/8"

    Wow, that surface grinder looks really cool.

    Is the lesson here that real knifemakers make their own grinders?

    What's the price on that one?

    The flyer is one of those company printed jobbies without pricing. I checked Tru-Grit's site and don't see it listed and can't find anything on it anywhere. I searched Hardcore Maximizer but all I get is info on buff guys tanning oil.

    Same here. Tanning oil.
    Chris told me he is going to carry Norton ceramic up to 1200 grit, but in about 6 months time.

    I got to use the bader and hardcore grinders at a class with Howard Clark earlier this year. The bader is a great grinder that is easily comparible to the kmg. It seemed to run faster than my setup on 100% (vfd) which was nice. The hardcore (non maximizer, tanning lotion model) is no where near as versatile but was sooooo quiet. I bet you could listen to your ipod instead of using hearing protection like the other models. I would really like to own one as my "bevels only grinder"
