Organ Blade Grinder 4-SALE

Bought new in early summer for our repair shop, but dad refuses to use (old guy scared of new technology) says there's nothing wrong with his 70's model bench grinder. So I am trying to get some of my money back. Paid $349 New, I've used it to sharp a total of 6 blades. Has light kit and the mulch blade adapter. Asking $225.

Would it work for backwards Walker blades?

Will ship anywhere in the US for the cost of shipping, for it's weight I think $25 is more then fair.

Fire your Dad and get someone that will use it! Only kidding of course. I would be honored to be able to work alongside my dad. Have you sharpened blades with him on it. Maybe he just needs a little guidance in seeing how the end results are better. I am sure he can do a qaualified job on a bench grinder, but if this makes your blades last longer overall and stay sharp longer, I can't see why he cant be converted. Is he just sore that you spent the money on it? I just can't understand wanting to use a bench grinder when having access to a dedicated blade grinder, unless there are issues with the later that make it akward to use.
