This is a decent little bench grinder overall. There a few small things I don't like about it though: 1. The small plastic tray on the front should be mounted with a screw or something, it constantly rattles while using the grinder. That gets old after a little while. 2. I have this mounted on the craftsman stand and all it does is walk around the garage floor all the time. You need to bolt this down to the floor if you want to really do anything with it. I used the grinding wheel and the wire wheel extensively and both worked great. I now have a buffing wheel mounted on and that works great as well. Not as much room as a dedicated buffing wheel but it works great for occasional jobs and the hobbyist. Bottom line is I say go for it, just be prepared for a vibrating dish and stand if you mount it to one.
it is ok for home hobby use but under powered for any bigger work also when I put it together the mounts for the dust shields had to be modified to fit correctly
bench grinder fit for use ,,, good handle .... nice shape ... need better price for better competition .. hope to find more pro tools here so would not go outside ... that should be
This is a quality tool with plenty of power. This purchase is the perfect example of why I buy Craftsman tools. You get a tool that rivals those from quality brands for a much better price.
Will provide many years service for Do It Yourself types.
The product was shipped to my house, it was perfectly intact no dents in the boxes and it works beautifully. Would highly recommend
Works great with a wire wheel as well.
I bought the grinder a few weeks ago and it has been great so far. All the lawn mower blades are sharpened and ready for the first mow of the season. Plan to mount it on my new workbench when it gets delivered next week. I do wish it would have came with an optional wire wheel.
