    My landscape material supplier stopped cutting grass this year, he now just sells mulch, topsoil and stone. So he had been slowly selling off mowing equipment to his best LCO customers. I should probably say he is almost giving away mowing equipment.

    Well he asked me if I wanted a blade grinder. I said yes. Well he showed me this Neary 410 grinder, then said I could have it for $200 in cash. It was in my truck, in less than 2 seconds and he has $200 in his pocket. (Lucky I had $200 on me) It came with the vacuum hood and diamond dresser tool. Those together are $200 new. He paid like $550 just for the machine. Plus he just put a new $60 stone in it. Yahoo.

    Heres a picture. I love this little machine. It works great. Why didn't I get one before. I seem to have already gotten some new grass cutting best friends. Two already showed up asking to borrow it, 6 more have called. I have only had it since 2 pm today and only told 1 friend about it. I already got it clamped to the bench, I might weld it to the bench so it doesn't walk off.

    I got a new bosch concrete drill. Might just have to use it. Hopefully that new metal 3/8" thick metal top for the work bench will get here soon.
