For accuracy sake, the ad for the new T10010 says "Designed in Germany". Not necessarily made in Germany. Where? I dunno.
I e-mailed Griz tech support and found out that the large wet white wheel on the G1036 is 220 grit also. Since I have the good guides for this machine, I believe I would be tossing good money after bad to buy the T10010. I haven't had much luck with such a fine grit. Any one here have comments on that?
On occasion, I will use my Grizzly (what else? ) 1" belt sander/grinder to sharpen my lathe tools. I use whatever grit belt is on at the time, mostly 80. The belt has no backing platen as I removed that years ago for special projects then lost it.
Unless someone is able to convince me that 220 grit is the cats pajamas for sharpening, I'll be passing on the new Griz sharpener.
