    I bought a 7.7A Wilton on Ebay (new) from a local company for about $90. I think the model # is 17205. I really like it. It is a smaller tool distributor though so shipping might be pretty expensive.

    If someone acts fast they can get an even better deal on the 17205 at Amazon: $77!

    I had not idea Baldor's were that expensive. I think I'll continue to limit my grinder acquisition to flea markets, auctions and recovered appliance motors.

    Frank, with the Baldor grinder it is a case of you get what you pay for. I picked up a 6" 1800 RPM Baldor grinder on close out for about 60% off. For anything less than a machine shop, it is the last grinder you will have to buy. Everything you see in the picture is a casting, not stamped metal. The motor is so quiet that you can hardly tell it is turned on.

    It is built like the proverbial outhouse.

    Not wanting to debate....well, yes I do.... One of my grinders is a Craftsman I bought from myself (when I owned a franchise Sears store) almost 40 years ago. Still smooth and fine, albiet, not as quiet as you describe. The others I inherited and are two Craftsman and a Skil, all are older than I am. All have cast housings. Runnin' good. Mebbe they made 'em better back then. Dunno. Kicking around somewhere in the garage are some flea market finds and a couple old appliance motors waiting for a 'whatever' use.

    A friend of mine has the Baldor Heavy Duty Buffer. That thing is serious. You couldn’t stop it if you tried!

    I wish you guys would stop doing this. I always see something that I want!
