Gryphon Convertible GrinderGryphon Convertible Grinder

 The Gryphon Convertible Grinder offers a new and improved revolutionary advance in comfort. By simply rotating the base, the grinding surface converts from horizontal to 30 degree inclined surface. You can sit while grinding! Even if you stand, the inclined work surface reduces fatigue because you no longer need to stoop over your work to see what you are doing.

The Gryphon Convertible Grinder is supplied with two grinding bits, a 1" and a 1/4". Of course the grinder can accept all other sizes of bits as well, including the Gryphon Slip-On Bits.

A new electric automatic pump supplies a reliable and constant flow of water directly to the bit regardless of saw orientation. The use of a sponge is optional with the electric pump.

Gryphon Grinder BitsGryphon Ripple Grinding Bit

The Gryphon bits fit Inland, Glastar and Gryphon grinders.  They are a line of high quality grinding bits made in Germany by E. Herrmann, the same company that makes Gryphon's diamond band saw blades.

Gryphon Grinding Heads

There are different bits offered in a combination of sizes, configurations and degree of coarseness. They are manufactured to the highest quality yet are priced to be competitive with standard bits. The Gryphon-Herrmann bits are manufactured by bonding cubic crystals of diamond in several layers within a nickel matrix. As the bit is used, microscopic particles break off, revealing a fresh surface. As one diamond wears away, the next diamond in the layer is exposed. The result is bits with extremely long life. Traditional bits dull much faster.
