A local college has offered me a G200 for a very good price (cheap) I
would like to use it for surface grinding small parts, anyone had any
experience with these machines, are they suitable for surface grinding
? David

I have a Union made by Harrisons, I have successfully done a small
amount of surface grinding on it, but they are not really designed for
this use.
If the price is right, I would grab it quick, these are one of the best
small versatile tool grinders you can get, and do not take up too much
space.
I have a copy of the Boxford manual should you need it.

John, I see that several others share the view that they are sound
machines, the one on Ebay you mentioned just made £815. Too rich for
me I'm afraid although it would have fitted in the last remaining space
in my workshop very well.

Best regards
