I ordered a Oregon Blade Grinder from Travis this past Tuesday. I received it Friday. Travis was great to deal with. The item was delivered exactly as he said it would be. The grinder is great. I was using a angle grinder previously. The Oregon does the work 10 times faster. Just wanted everyone to know of the great experience I had with a new sponsor and give props to Travis for delivering as promised.

cutters, how easy was to keep the correct angle on the blades?

Petrentz it is very easy. With the model I got you only adjust the stone up or down. I got a new blade and adjusted the stone to the new blade. It's really a great grinder for the money.

thanks, cutters....i ordered one (probably the same one like you) from Travis a few hrs ago. i figured if there is something you did not like thus far, you'd let us know. can't wait to get it, sharpen my blades and let it roll.

i also ordered a ballancer from Magna-Matic after i talked to Travis.

Just got the sharpener. No grit collector or wheel dressing. According to the literature that came with it everything is maintenance free. No oiling the motor, etc., etc.

petrentz,

You will need a Wheel Dresser. IT will remove the metal and debris from the stone so that it will cut faster, cleaner and cooler.

If you dont use a wheel dresser you will find the blades take longer and longer to sharpen and will start to blue up.

yeah. that was the price...the problem is that it's too big for a regular grinder stand, and i dont want to put it on my workbench.....so i have to build a rolling cart and put it on there. maybe one of these days.

I noticed my blades heat up faster as you said. I started to do one blade half way sharp then do the other two in order then start with the first blade again to finish them up. I'll have to get the dresser and see how that works. I had a feeling paint was stuck on the grinder wheel from the blades.
