Challenging gravity and refusing to concede

,
January 14, 2008
By Fletcher
" If you have a bench grinder and it refuses to stay 33 1/4 inches above the Earth's surface as mine does, I recommend purchasing Northern Tool's grinder pedestal. Stationed between my shop floor and the grinder, it's indeed peanut butter to their bread, to abuse a metaphor. Or, jelly, if that's your bent.
It's stable, that's for sure, in both it's physical nature and it's demeanor. It hasn't gone off on me once, and I do a lot of swearing in it's presence (although, it should be made clear, none of that is it's fault.)
The Northern Industrial Tools Adjustable Position Grinder Pedestal (or NITAPGP, as grinder pedestal cogniscenti refer to it) arrives in 3 pieces, not including the box which can be repurposed into a rocket ship by those 3 years and under. Instructions are meager; if you're having trouble determining assembly order just remember that the long skinny piece goes in the middle. (Sorry, can't help you with the rocket ship, and my 2 year old can't type.)
The 'adjustable' label is a bit misleading. There's not much to adjust. I suppose you could loosen the shaft from the base and rotate it, or lower it by cutting the tube (raising it might be somewhat more difficult.) It's not telescoping; more like confidently fixed at 33 1/4 inches.
Overall, this is a good product that does one thing, and does it well. And the box is handy too.
