"I just got a new grinder yesterday and "WOW" is it awesome. This grinder tracks better than any grinder I have used. It has 3 different slots for putting your attachments on which is very handy if you have as many attachments as I have."

Wilmont Grinders welcomes you to our site. We have a few products listed and are adding more as we receive feedback from our customers.   Our signature grinder is the Wilmont TAG-101.  It is the showcase creation of what our years of experience and customer suggestions have resulted in.

What makes our grinder unique from others (we have owned & tested most) is its flexibility and modular design. The TAG-101 has a unique 3 tooling arm slot design that overcomes shortcomings found in many other grinders we’ve used in the past.
This grinder is both a Vertical and a Horizontal 2 x 72" grinder.

The TAG-101 was designed, built and tested by two knife makers who both work in the engineering field and have worked together to build a better mousetrap. The construction of the TAG-101 is also a completely new design that provides many more options when grinding knives.If it is not apparent yet why having three tooling arm slots is advantageous, once you see a few of our accessories, it will be. As our slogan states, if you believe in making a good product - you must "Finish first."
