Combine a flat diamond disk for straight edges with a router style bit for curves. Bit and disk run simultaneously - you don't have to stop and switch back and forth.

The powerful, high torque motor is 1/9 HP, and runs at 3600 rpm. The Diamond Max comes with a full one year manufacturer's warranty (excluding the grinding bit and wheel).

More about the Diamond Max

I was amazed when I first used this grinder. I think you will agree with me that Diamond Max is one of the most useful tools ever developed for the stained glass worker. You have seen and perhaps used the several models of glass grinders that we have offered in the past. We have also offered the Sculpture Router for grinding the edges of straight glass pieces. But Diamond Max combines both of those functions!

When I began work with it, I first used the 1-inch grinder bit. With that feature I was able to grind the pieces of glass fast and cleanly, so I could trim them to the exact size of the pattern, even when my cutter had slipped and the pieces were as much as 1/8" over-sized. When you use the Diamond Max, you will be able to complete intricate lamp shades speedily and accurately with aplomb. But there is more!

When I used the 6-inch wheel to straighten out the edges on some rectangular pieces of glass for a jewel box I was making, I was able to cut the pieces and then grind them to a perfectly straight edge. What's more, because I was going to join the edges of these pieces at the corners of the box, I used the angle feature on the Diamond Max and mitered them to a 45 degree angle, so that they joined in a fine line. As a result, my copper foil wrapping was visible as only a delicate outline.

As an added feature, you can miter the edges of glass to a 30 degree angle. This is a perfect answer to the problem which arises when you are assembling a lamp shade and the curved shape keeps the edges of the glass from nestling snugly together.

The two features, the grinding bit and the 6-inch wheel run simultaneously, so that you don't have to stop and remove one or the other device when you want to switch between functions.
