    Griot's GR3 Rotary; Anyone Have One? - Need a Favor

    I'm looking for a few dimensions, as shown in the attached images, of the GR3 that I need to finish building the wall rack to store my polishers. I have a GR3 ordered but won't get it until mid to late Feb. due to back-order status. I'd like to finish the rack before then and these dimensions would sure help. Anyone?

    And thanks in advance.

    Apologies John for being so late to this, no good excuse.

    I took measurements using a basic wood school type ruler and eyeing each measurement up. I would say my measurements are as accurate as possible. If you want to give yourself and the tool a little wiggle room, maybe add 1/8" inch.

    Here you go,

    Thanks so much Mike.

    I'm going to go to work right now using these measurements.

    If I could bother you with one more request... Relative to the 4 1/2 measurement... I really need that dimension without the extension installed.

    The image I provided is a bit misleading as it shows the extension installed. I tried to clarify the measurement I need with the note to measure without the extension installed but I can certainly see how that communication got lost.

    For the sake of clarity here's another view that more clearly shows the measurement I need.

    I thought you wanted from center of spindle to the second rubber tab on the bottom of the tool. I wasn't looking at your diagram correctly. The 4 1/2" wasn't the extension measurement.

    Perfect! That's exactly what I needed.

    I'll update with a picture of the bracket once I incorporate the changes that I'm using these measurements for.

    Cool.


    And remember,

    Measure twice and cut once.



    Or like my wife tells me when I'm doing projects like this,

    If it ain't broke - fix it until it is.
