    I just used my grinder, but it took a while. I only had to do two pipes (four fishmouths) though.

    Use it everyday an no problems. Just keep the little bronze or brass bushing well lubed. I didn't on my first one and it wore out pretty quick...

    I got one, when you get it, its covered with this damn grease thats like hard as hell. I had to soak the biyatch in denatured alcohol for a day to get it to soften up. other than that it works great. Just make sure you mount it to a good firm table or something. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
