  • Which one?

    If you had to choose between the Delta 23-710(on the left) and the 23-700 wet/dry grinders (Delta calls them sharpening centers, sounds more expensive doesn't it?), which one would you go with where maintaining the usual wood shop tools such as chisels, plane irons, and lathe turning tools is the primary concern.



    Here's a link to the Delta web page with both tools;

    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

    If you are going to sharpen jointer or planer blades, the 23-710 is the choice.

      If I had to choose one of those it would be the 710 because you can flatten the backs of your blades easier and it is a finer grit wheel.

        See the latest Fine Woodworking magazine for a review of these. I think it's #181.
