    Hi Waldbrent,

    Yes, really solid. The VFD (controller) is the weak link though. After around 3 hours of grinding today, I heard a bang and the trip switch in my workshop triggered.

    Dust got into the VFD and short circuited.

    One IP65 sealed VFD on order. That blade will have to wait :-(

    That's what I'll do too - unless I can source a sealed one.
