here is the magna matic all set up!!!!

http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=338568

sorry it is a link and was too lazy to resize just to repost.

what do you think magna matic??

nice huh!! i used it today and it was very smooth. completely different from the old Wall rbg on the floor next to it in the pics.

the vacuum seemed to really grab most of the debri too, but time will tell how much as once we start grinding daily it will become evident what the vac could not get.

i used this to sharpen 20 blades this morning alone. they were all new so it was really like sharpening 60 blades as you have to take off the initial butterknife edge to get a cutting edge. it take alot more grinding for that first sharpening.

the entire time it was very smooth, very easy on the hands compared to others. my hands would cramp and ache after sharpening before, but not at all after a long session. i can already tell blades are going to last longer , it is hard to explain, but i can see it discovering how this unit works.

not once did the wheel put a blue mark on the metal which is being indication of too hot and ruining the temper of the blade.. not one blue mark.

i am just thoroughly impressed.

after grinding that much metal, there is very little grit on the floor under the grinder. the vac attachment works awesome.

we had to get the larger platform for the blades as the other one we found was too short. we purchased if off your website. price was not too bad, but why dont you give the option of one or the other at time of purchase?

I am giving constructive criticism, but not sure where the smaller platform would come in handy for most mower blade applications. The longer version is much better as we got to use it today. made all the difference of a highly impressive fantastic machine to... absolutely the finest tool for the job available.

Hello Grassman

Here is the reason for it - often blades that have strength bends - or a step-up or step-down from the mounting hole will not allow you to grind the full cutting edge - so we make the 8000-03 standard work table 5" long as the one that comes with the machine since it can handle pretty much all conventional blades.

The 8000-32 extended 9" long work table was later designed as an aid to the landscapers and lawn care pro's that purchased the MAG-8000.

Servicing dealers purchase the MAG-8000 more often than landscapers, and they generally like the 8000-03 work table better.

If you look at this link of the MAG-8000, down on the right hand side we do show the 8000-32 as an accessory.

http://www.magna-matic-direct.com/MA...p/mag-8000.htm

It just comes down to the user, for who thinks what work table is "better."

Hope that kind of answers it, and thank you for the post.

it does, and we like that long platform so much better. this thing is a dream.

i did notice something odd though, after we changed the plate, (not sure it was like this when i installedit before it saw sharpening) but it does not line up with the wheel in the notch. it looks as if the wheel is out and needs to be tightened but it is tight as checked.

thoughts? would you like pics?

Hello Grassman,

Pictures would make my answer more clear and right the first time.

Thank you,
