Bench Grinder Poll

>Hi Guys and Gals,

I am in the market for an 8" ginder and would appreciate hearing from you about the manufacturer ( Delta, DeWalt, Baldor,etc) that you chose, and how well you are satisfied with it. My "problem" is that I have an older 6" Baldor that I purchased at an auction, and I'm not sure that I can get similar quality unless I get another Baldor. I'm looking at an 8" model for less hollow in the grind, and I'm wondering if that is even an issue that I should worry about for turning chisels.

I've read anumber of horror stories about vibrating grinders, and I'd like to make certain that I don't become another one.

How about stating the manufacturer of your machine, wheel diameter, build quality, and whether you'd buy it again.

Thanks,
Mike
