    essential for some convexity grinding. Another feature I like abt this machine is the auto tracking on belts ( always dead center)
    Zitangy,
    Something like this?

    It's $200. That sounds like I can afford that soon enough.
    Is it slow RPM or variable speed?

    Something like that usually runs pretty fast, single speed. The Craftsman version does, at least.

    check out wilton grinders and wayne coe's grinders. I have a wayne coe disc grinder with variable speed and reverse, and a grizzly 2x72.

    I use a variable speed KMG, a craftsman 1x42 and a variable speed 9" disc with interchangable plates. Will soon be adding a TW-90 and maybe a horizontal 2x72 also

    Mike, doesn't the TW-90 go horizontal too? Or would you get a dedicated horizontal for the extra efficiency?

    That's how you use the surface grinding attachment on a TW-90. I'm not sure it has the "flatbed" feature of the purpose built horizontal grinders like the KMG.
