This is a wonderfully portable tool for a wood worker or wood carver; maybe even stone carving, although haven't tried it yet. Very portable with a great traveling case. Usually, once unloaded, it becomes difficult to get package back inside the case. Not with this grinder - it has bee very comfortable and quick to unpack and start working. Gotta love the mobility of being able to set up on a picnic table or workbench. Thanks Grizzly, once again and as always, great equipment.
