Judged by any standard -- speed, precision or longevity -- the Winona Van Norman CG's delivers better performance than any other crankshaft grinders.
By careful design of this advanced machine, set-up, and operation has been made notably easier in several ways. Four indexing locations on the head stock with the optional air operated index pins make it faster to dial in the crankshaft properly.
Also, the easily adjusted outboard counterweights never need to be supplemented by inboard weights. More than convenience, these and other features save valuable time and make it easier for a new operator to learn.
