SWAPTOP MACHINES
With all the different models of SwapTops available, it's hard to know which one is best suited for your purposes. What is good to know though, is that once you buy one of the SwapTops you'll be able to convert it to any one of the machines shown above by just buying a conversion kit. No need to buy another housing base and motor, you already own one. The conversion kits contain a new worksurface that just snap on to your base and use the motor you already have. This makes having any new machine you want much cheaper to buy.

We describe here what each machine is used for with more detailed information by just clicking on an image above.

GTO Grinder-(#2244)- Inland's most basic grinder features a 3/4" grinder head. The GTO is equipped with Inland's strongest motor- 48 oz./in. of torque. Ideal for stained glass as well as fused glass enthusiasts. The best entry-level grinder money can buy.

SwapTop Grinder-(#2241)- The same powerful grinder as the GTO but comes equipped with 2 grinder heads; a 1" diameter and a 1/4" diameter. The motor is the same 48 oz./in. torque motor that is included with the GTO and also accepts all of Inland's SwapTop conversion kits.
