The Gryphon Twister offers a revolutionary advance in comfort.
By simply rotating the base, the grinding surface converts from horizontal to inclined. For the first time, you can sit while grinding. Even if you stand, the inclined work surface reduces fatigue because you no longer need to stoop over your work to see what you are doing. Gryphon Slip-on Bits are the industry's easiest to change. The bits slip onto the shaft and held securely in place with a slight twist. To remove a bit, you simply lift it straight up. 1" and 3/4" bits are easily interchanged in seconds without tools or levers. An automatic pump supplies a constant flow of water directly to the bit regardless of saw orientation. Because of the way the water is directed onto to the bit, there is virtually no splash. No sponge is required in this arrangement. Pump must be primed first. The Twister comes with a starter bit, to be able to use standard replacement bits, simply remove the plastic sleeves first.
The Gryphette offers the best value in a glass grinder today. The small enclosure houses a surprisingly powerful DC motor. Even when using 1" diamond bits, it is virtually impossible to stall the motor.
The Gryphette is the perfect grinder for the occasional glass artist, student or classroom. The very low cost and convenient size will be appreciated by everyone who does not require the features of a larger grinder.
