    I have seen the Mini Miller in lawn magazines or a website. I can't remember where I saw it. It's hard to beat a dedicated blade grinder though. I sure like my RBG grinder. :)

    your grinder is nice but if all you have is the old bench grinder most of us can reproduce this thing on our own....
    and besides the jig come off when you losen the handled nut.

    I came up with a setup for grinding my blades to the factory angle which cost me maybe $60.00 including the delta bench grinder. So far it seems to work fine. I do agree though there is probally no substitute for a dedicated blade grinder.

    What's a Rotozip? I have not seen one but I'm interested. Sounds handy to me.

    we use 4.5" hand grinder with blade in vise. this is the quickest way we have found. once you get the hang of it keeping the angle is a sinch. also when blades are off we scrape decks. p.s. we also use the jungle jack which is offered by the same co. that does the jungle wheels and we love it. the jungle rack for trailors is cool too.
