Stuart Batty UGS Large Round Platform 2"
- Normally Ships in 1-3 Business Days
A grinding platform for use on almost any wheel grinder. The SB Universal Grinding System pivots at the face of the wheel, making tool sharpening easier and safer. Its rigid design provides improved accuracy in sharpening and shaping tools. Made in the USA.
This is a great platform, solidly built. I bought the one-inch version and ground the opening wider to accommodate 1 1/4" CBN wheels. I also ground the back to match the existing grind. I also had to rout 4 small channels into my grinding platform table to get the UGS-to-Wolverine adapter to fit close enough to the grinder wheel. WELL worth the extra effort to fit this platform into my setup. Wow! Dead solid, plenty of size for support. Great job, Stuart!!!
Quite honestly I must say this is the best platform on the market. I've used a large variety of platforms/rests and this one is the most stable. Other competitor rests are either not large enough to get a stable platform, especially while sharpening large scrapers, have too much play/wobble in the preset angle settings, and are challenging to adjust. This platform has two knobs to tighten, of which secure nicely with no play/wobble. Although it's higher dollar than the competitor rests, you'll find it's money wisely spent after you use it.
