The Tradesman Machinist variable-speed bench grinder from Cuttermasters produces features typically made with traditional tool and cutter grinders. It is designed to take the place of larger and more expensive tool grinding machines. The grinder, which uses precision-plated superabrasive wheels, can cut off carbide end mills and drills, produce Weldon flats on end-mill shanks, and grind neck reductions on end mills.

The machine’s DC grinding system operates with no loss of torque at speeds ranging from 400 to 4,000 rpm, and the lower rpm prevents heat stress without the use of coolant when cutting off or grinding large neck reductions or producing large flats on carbide tools, the company says.
