  •   Still Going Strong

Pros : This is a great grinder. I've had mine for 6 years now and never had any trouble with it. Sometimes I look at newer ones and think that would be fun to try, but I can't justify replacing what's not broke! It gets the job done and has been easy to maintain.
Cons : not a one.

  •   Great lil grinder!
By on
Pros : This baby is quiet, clean & versatile! I love the fact that I can switch 3/4" to 1/4" & 1/"8 bits with ease. It provides all that is expected from a grinder & more. Clean-up is easy.
Cons : The accessory drawer sticks a bit, but a little silicone lube does wonders!
Other Thoughts : This unit replaced a 30+y/o Glastar which I inherited years ago. It finally developed a leak, after years of moderate use. So I went with the same brand.

Other Thoughts : like this item, would be great if it would also convert to a lap grinder/sander, but maybe they will offer that product in the future

  •   Great grinder for small projects
By on
Pros : I received the Glastar Super Star II Grinder for Christmas this year and have used it for shaping cabochons, earrings and small bowls for fusing and slumping. I have even used the mini table attachment with 1/4" & 1/8" heads to form smaller twists and turns in my glass shapes. I love this grinder. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and fits comfortably on my countertop. I also like the small drawer in the base which holds a couple of extra grinder heads and tools.
Cons : I don't have anything negative to say about this grinder.
Other Thoughts : I use the standard grinder head sold with the grinder for non dichro fusible glass, but use a finer grinding head for dichro to avoid chips on the edges of the dichroic coating. I would recommend purchasing the additional head for grinding dichroic glass.

  •   Nice First Grinder
By on
Pros : I purchased this grinder 2.5 years ago and it shows no signs of wear and tear. It is stable, has enough power for my hobbyist use and is meeting my expectations. Would recommend it.
Cons : The bit that came with it developed bare spots after a year or so but not sure if that's due to user inexperience, normal life expectancy or just not a very good bit.
