I'm guessing you caught the sale that was going on recently? Congrats!

Nice, I have the no longer sold woodcraft grinder that looks the same, it's been a real little workhorse. The rikon it's supposed to be at least as nice!
Cool, and congrats!

I predict you will really like the Pin jaws. I use mine when starting about 75% of bowls etc.

Jeff, you betcha!
Ryan sounds great, I hope to get a lot of use out of it.
Vaughn, now I just have to learn to sharpen... More on that later :/
Darren I think the sale is until the end of the month, but even without its a decent price @ $130.
Mike , sounds like I'll get a load of use out of it as well then!
Congratulations on all the new goodies, Ned!
Learning to sharpen properly was an adventure for me, but it sure makes the tools safer to use when turning. I've had the Delta VS grinder and recently changed to a 150 grit on the right wheel to get a smoother grind.
