  •   newbie to Leaded glass
By on
Pros : Small, price is right. I bought the beetle bits cutting system, so grinding was minimal, as that system rocks. When I did have to grind, this grinder was powerful enough to do what it's supposed to do. While the table surface area is small 8 x 8, It certainly large enough to accommodate what I was doing. I really can't see where a giant table is needed for stained glass, but I'm sure there's someone out there that needs it larger.
Cons : Some water does spray off into the surrounding area. While I call this a con, that doesn't bother me. I'm not working on the dining room table. Any grinder with a water feed is going to spray water, and shields are helpful, but never do they contain all the spray. A towel spread out with the grinder on top is sufficient.

  •   Great little grinder!
By on
Pros : Easy to assemble, easy to use
Cons : none
Other Thoughts : A great little grinder for the money. Seems well made and was easy to assemble. The motor is strong and makes easy work of grinding imperfections out of my fused glass pieces. I have no problem holding even the smallest jewelry pieces I make up to the grinding bit -- smooth, rotating action!

  •   Very Good Price
By on
Pros : Love this little grinder. It has a very strong motor. Grinds glass like a charm.
Cons : Face shield has to be purchased separately. No second story shelf, to use smaller bits for tighter radius.
Other Thoughts : Overall a nice little grinder for a newbie or an occasional user.

  •   Good Deal
By on
Pros : For beginners this grinder does real well.
Cons : The allen bolt that holds the bit can't be tightened enough to hold the bit in place.
Other Thoughts : Hope to purchase an additional bit or two to steal the allen bolt from them.

  •   Not a 5 star grinder
By on
Pros : Calling this a five star grinder is incorrect. It is a suitable beginners grinder at best.
Cons : Very small work surface in comparison to other grinders on the market. Be prepared to purchase a step up grinder in a short time.

  •   Great for beginners!
By on
Pros : Low price, simple to use and clean up, tiny size - - it's cute :)
Cons : Work area might be too tiny for larger projects.
Other Thoughts : I love this grinder! I've had mine for about 5 years and it works like it's brand new. The small size is perfect for beginners, it's easy to use and store, and cleanup's a breeze. It's perfect for the occasional hobbyist like myself because it provides great payoff with minimal investment, plus it can use standard bits (2fer pack to save even more moola). All in all, I love my gryphette and see no reason to upgrade to a bigger more expensive grinder. Try it, you'll love it too :)
