    expanding availability

    it would seen thet the only true need is;

    to know how inportant a perfect grind is.

    that being said most people dont need a perfect grind, some verry specilized welds will but most wont.

    i think like the plasma cutters, the tung. grinders are becoming more populare due to availability and price. i dont need a plasma cutter especily when you concider i have an O/A torch with cut and weld tips, yet i do have a plasma cutter. seems the tung. grinder falls in the same mold. and now that the sharpie is available for only $200.00 less than 10% of the welder caust i would tend to think it too will become more popular and indispencible.

    although i have come to realize i will not need 1 i am shoure that i will save up in the hopes of some day having 1. why you ask. well mostly cuz it's out there.

    Here are four nice unit to consider;

    WIG 10/175

    The WIG 10/175 is a bench mounted Tungsten Electrode Grinder which can be used to grind and cut to length tungsten electrodes. The WIG 10/175 use a collet to clamp the electrode, this collet is then located in a holder and the collet is then rotated as the tungsten is introduced to the grinding wheel via a precision slide system. The WIG 10/175 us a bonded diamond impregnated grinding wheel gives exceptional life.


    The Tig Point


    The Sharp Shooter

    The Sharp Shooter uses an innovative tungsten grinding system to provide accuracy and safety in a compact, yet heavy-duty unit. Its unique design reduces the skill required to allow for easy grinding, flatting, and cutting in an enclosed work area. Vacuum system options are available with HEPA filters in a quality work cabinet.


    Turbo-4 Tungsten Grinder

    Turbo-4 Tungsten Grinder is a capable, economical tungsten grinder. It allows for grinding and flatting of tungsten electrodes. Its enclosed work area protects fingers from accidents, lungs from harmful dust, and eyes from sparks

    If You have to ask the Cost , they are not for You.

    I walk through an electronics store and wonder why anyone would WANT to spend 14000 dollars on a television....is it up to me to decide if they really NEED it...Nope. It's important to evaluate want vs need as an individual and not worry about the other guys. If I had to explain a NEED for all the junk in my shop then I'd be in deep trouble!

    Just my passing thought as I read this.......JEFF

    owww

    i get it.
    my only real concern is weather it is realy that important to have the tip just right? it seems that close is good enough so getting a tung. grinding setup is realy just about saving time where time is $$$$$$$ so for a home shop it realy isent needed.
    that seems to be the general concensis as i understand it.

    owww oowww
    i can anser that 1.

    power ishues is why i need the dyn200DX. a syncro180 would work but i cant feed it the needed 60amp's the dynasty will give me 200Amps with only a 30amp draw. i would love to put the extra $1000.00 diferance into a few cool tools but i have to go dynasty for power reasons.
    that being said i'm shoure the dyn200 will meet all my needs and i should not out grow it.

    Fun,
    I know that is your case. I was mostly speaking to my perception of silliness in GWB's original post. It seems silly to me that a home shop guy that could afford to spend more than $2200 to get his welder and set ups would worry about spending $200 on a Sharpie tungsten grinder.
