Well, Steve, I figger you musta had a chance to use that grinder at least once by now, eh? But it seems your report is missing or in really, really small type.


You ain't fixin' to give it to your BIL for Christmas or nothin' like that, are ya?

CX,
What grinder?, i dont speak english. lol
Love it, and have bought two myself
Will give a review later and maybe some photos, and get it back in the mail to you so the next lucky participant can have a go.
BTW, what does BIL stand for.

p.s
the grinder was a red "black and decker"? right.

Yeah, but it was the big five-amp one. Don't try to substitute the little four-amp model.


And now I can't find my list to see who's next on there.

Well, that could be true, Greg. Without no steenkin' list I can't tell, eh? But if you lie, the tile gods will punish you.

I know I traded email with a couple guys on it, so let's wait and see do anybody show up. Otherwise you can be next if you have serious interest.

Naaaa, then they'd all be tryin' to keep'em, 'steda buyin' their own.

But thanks for the offer, Mark. If the demand picks up, maybe I'll be callin' you.

CX, let me know if you want me to send it back to the return address on the box you sent it to me in. Give me a few days and ill get it clean and have my kids say their goodbyes and get all that emotion out of the way that goes with when ever a loved one leaves home.
What happens if she doesnt want to leave?????????????????

Naaaa, don't start with that. RobZ done already tried it and it ain't gonna work for you, neither.

Don't know what return is on there, Steve. If it's Windsongs, yes, ship it there. That's a bidness address if you're shipping UPS. Brown Truck comes every day whether we want him or not.

Well i finally sent the TYW grinder back to CX a couple of days ago, i didnt realise i had it so long, and like i told CX i have since bought 2 myself(makita variable speeds). My helper Mike became very attached to the grinder as he found it very easy to control, we used the TYW grinder on two swimming pool tile scumline replacements where we chiseled off the old 6"-8" of tile and then grinded down the surface for new tile and some of this was done with the grinder over our heads, the slower speed settings are perfect for this, and we used it on grinding down high spots on concrete 3 season room floors with the same grinding wheel Jerry sent out with it(which im afraid is no more)
We usually have the two grinders set up during the day for working with tile and Mike (my helper) was sad to see it go back on its travels(i had to pry it from his hands).As i said i bought two, the second one is a present (christmas bonas) for Mike for christmas-- i think he'll be happy and we all know a happy worker is good for buisness.
I couldnt find some of the photos on the swimming pools but here are the TYW grinder and one of mine working in harmony.
I highly recommend them an would find it hard to go back to a regular grinder again.

Helper Mike should be a happy employee, indeed.

Ain't nobody jumped in here sayin' Greg should git inna back of the line, so I suppose he'll be the next to try the TYW special grinder. Without, it seems, any test grinding wheels.

Y'all musta had a buncha cee-ment to grind, Steve. I remember there bein' a lotta diamonds left on that thing when Jerry sent it with the grinder. You sure ol' Mike didn't tak'em to his local hock shop?

I think Greg should get it next. Maybe it will keep him out of the mud box for awhile.
