Inland Kristall 2000s Glass Grinder
The Kristall 2000s from Inland is a professional piece of glass grinding equipment at a very reasonable price. The Kristall 2000s electric glass grinder has a more powerful motor than the Kristall 1, which eliminates overheating with intensive use in the glass studio.
It benefits from a built-in impeller water pump system which feeds water up to the diamond glass grinder head (a 3/4" standard grit is included) without the need for a sponge. You can also benefit from the many compatible attachments and grinder bit designs to enhance your machine's capabilities this model has a worksurface which will take grinder heads up to a diameter of 1" which are available separately.
It is extremely important to wear eye protection when using glass grinders. Fill the water reservoir which prevents airborne glass dust and lubricates and cools the diamond glass grinder head, prolonging the life of the diamond surface.
It is essential to apply a thin coating of grease (e.g. petroleum jelly or anti-seize lubricant) to the motor shaft before fitting the grinder bit. It is also worth removing the allen screw and inserting some grease into the thread to keep it lubricated and easy to adjust. Always secure the allen key to the flat side of the shaft, tightening it to the rounded side will scar the shaft and prevent removal of the bit.
Start with a piece of scrap glass the first time you grind, to get a feel for the machine and the process. The bit should be lowered and set with 1/8" of diamond coating showing, this can be raised as each 1/8" strip of coating is worn.
We recommend that you use an RCD (circuit protector) with this machine and a cap full of grinder coolant in the water to prolong the life of the diamond bit. You can add grinder coolant here

Magic piece of kitBy Vernice
I can not fault this company for the speed of delivery. Practically comes the following day. Super efficient.
I have had glass, foil and other items within the last few weeks. Everything comes well wrapped.
I ordered a Kristall 2000 A a few weeks a go.
Magic piece of kit. Very pleased with it. I will definitely continue to use this company.
