The Sharpshooter
Precision Tungsten Electrode Grinder
Dust Extraction Models Safely Contain All Grinding Dust!

The Sharpshooter uses an innovative tungsten grinding system to provide accuracy and safety in a compact, yet heavy-duty unit. Its unique design reduces the skill required to allow for easy grinding, flatting, and cutting in an enclosed work area. Dust extraction system options are available with HEPA filters in a quality work cabinet. If you are concerned about grinding thoriated tungsten electrodes, 2 versions of the Sharpshooter capture and contain ALL dust generated by the grinding of 2% Thoriated Tungsten.

Most Precise
A universal electrode wand holds the electrode securely and at the closest possible proximity to the grinding contact point. This produces concentric grinds not available on other tungsten grinders that use electrode guides/bushings with loose fit-up that get even looser after use. The Sharpshooter™ tungsten grinder has no problems with odd sized electrode diameters. Every electrode size is gripped tightly to ensure precise tungsten sharpening.

The grinding and cutting areas are enclosed and provide a Plexiglas window for viewing. This keeps potentially harmful dust away from lungs, sparks away from eyes, and fingers free from injury. Safety officers are especially pleased with the design of this tungsten grinder. AWS Health & Safety Fact Sheet Number 27 Recommends: "Use a high-efficiency dust collection system to capture particles created during the grinding of electrodes or disturbed during housekeeping." Sharpshooter� Tungsten Grinders equipped with Pro-Fusion Dust Extractors completely capture and contain ALL dust generated by the grinding of tungsten electrodes.

Easiest to Use
Designed so that anyone can easily grind, flat, and cut tungsten electrodes with repeatable accuracy. There are no complicated adjustments, special tool requirements, or difficult time consuming setups. The wand allows for one-touch grinding, flatting, and cutting.

Purpose Built Tungsten Grinder
This is not a bench grinder with tooling attached as an after thought. It is custom designed to provide a rugged, dedicated machine tool for accurately preparing tungsten electrodes.

Optional Dust Extraction System
All-welded steel work cabinet with quiet, integrated 1 micron dust extractor filtration system (HEPA 0.3 micron filter also available). One switch turns on/off the grinder and dust extraction. After switching the system off, there are three seconds of additional power provided to the dust extractor to clean the system. Complete Sharpshooter grinding systems are furnished with a rugged work cabinet to house the dust extractor and a shelf for your accessories.
