Re: New Oregon Grinders

I continue to use the new Oregon 310 grinder, which is kind of fun, since it is small, simple and quiet.  Not for heavy use, but I have a number of chains that just need touch-up grinding, and are sharpened at the default 30/60/0 angles.

I have have had some issues that should have been addressed before the grinder was released:
- error in wheel arbor hole size (replaced by Oregon);
- inferior, fine grit wheels (replaced with Oregon and Molemab wheels);
- specified 1/4 inch depth gauge wheel could not be mounted (returned wheel);
- motor hits chain stop and support post with 1/2 cutter life left and a fairly new wheel (raised issue with Oregon).

I hope that they address these issues, because it could be a nice sharpening tool for the right application.
