I'm just waiting for it to skyrocket in value, I don't think there are any more new ones available.

Every now and then the NSA auctions "old" stock machine tools (and everything else under the sun). I think it's something like a ~20 year cycle. The machine salesmen used to tell stories of them making spot purchases of dozens of machines which means 100's that are warehoused who-knows-where?

The Harig is just a bit of a stretch for my budget (still waiting to buy tires for my Volvo).

I wish someone near me owned one of those machines. It wasn't long ago that there were machine shops aplenty in the Capitol District of New York. I don't need to grind that often but want things spot on when I do.

In the meantime, cool wheels on a slow speed grinder looks like a good move. The dang Tormek just has too many issues. Good for axes.

I can almost guarantee that every one of those shops had at least one Harig 612 grinder -- It was one of the first machines every tool shop bought... before it all went to china and those shops closed. There are still plenty of them around though and if you want things "spot on" that machine (with care) will do it closer than the tools you have to measure with.

If you dig you'll find a good one for little more than the cost of a tricked out Tormek grinder -- not that they have the same purpose.
