I think they normally just use narrow sandpaper in a spiral on those alright, looks like it won't need much finishing.

There's been no mention of price, but I'm sensing some suckage

And I think he was about to give it to me. I said I was questioning why it was buried in a back corner, not being used. So I said it worked when plugging in, I would give $50 for it. After we loaded it, guy said he needs to charge $55 because the light bulb in it, being an incandescent is a antique too.

I will say that after using it last night at home, I really have newfound aspirations to modify my existing grinder at work that we use to sharpen our brazed carbide tooling on to a bigger table for sure. Maybe even one with linear bearings on a cross slide.

I have the plans working in my head. Now to only have work slow down enough for me to make it.
