Subject:
How Much Grinder Vibration and other questions?

Stuart Johnson
>I just purchased one of the Woodcraft slow speed grinders and wonder about vibration. First off, I have never used a regular grinder before but do use a Tormek. When it has come up to speed I can feel some vibration but seem to get a clean grind with no bumping. Just how much vibration should I expect or accept? Should it be bolted down or are the rubber feet okay?

Have any of you made up a wider rest? The ones supplied seem awful small.
