Magna-Matic review

This is my first post on this web site. I've been looking around on here for a while and well i wanted to be able to post so i signed up.
I got my MAG-9000 blade sharpener about a month ago and before i posted anything about it i wanted to be able to say i have put this unit to the test day in and day out. Well today is about a month since i got this unit and everything you hear about these things is true. This thing is so easy to use and it will make the sharpest blade with ease.

The customer service at Magna-matic is really good also, every question i had to ask they would take the time to answer it and explain it. I went from using a 7inch disc grinder that we used for about the last 14 years to the mag-9000 and ill never look back.

Yes they do cost a bit but, you really are buying the best.

Welcome to the MM family, many will question and deny the fact that this is not a necessary piece of equipment, but if one is serious about their trade they will learn quickly and buy the dedicated tools for proper maintenance of their blades. You made a very wise decision in buying what is becoming the industry standard

Thanks for the recommendations guys, I just ordered the "Lot 3" system with the MAG-9000 sharpener, MAG-1000 balancer and a stand.

Excellent service, I ordered Sunday night online and they shipped it out Monday morning with tracking numbers.

I've been using an angle grinder forever so this should be a time saving and quality upgrade.

I've been using my MAG-9000 for nearly seven years now -- no complaints!

Oh yeah, definitely get the extended table. I switched it out immediately as it gives much more support. I think you should just ship them with this table as standard issue.
